Quote from: support on August 12, 2014, 12:11:46 AMI am evaluating a new user registration problem with the forum, so received this from a user via email:
Quote"I faced the problem too. And the culprit was CryptoPrevent. Myabe he has that program too. CryptoPrevent changes group policy settings to prevent ransmwares from running. What he should do is whitelist pl4sfx.exe."
In fact, I found a good ban function that maintain by other people.https://cleantalk.org/It only need $8/year for just 1 website, and each time I Google the IP address that used for spam, most of the time they showing up on the result.They also supported newest SMF as well, which is 1 of good thing about it.The only thing is how [b]credibility[/b] it is, as it is register by using GoDaddy, and it is also a RU company...

You will drive yourself crazy trying to maintain an effective list that doesn't ban legit users.I cleared them all out for now. I am doing some other work on the forum, making sure it's fully indexable by Google (I have some concerns, unrelated to the bans).
QuoteIt seems SMF automatically places 'noindex' on certain pages where there is duplicate content. So, Google should be indexing the forum, I just wondered when I saw the noindex attribute.
QuoteThey aren't blocking new topics.I believe CmptrWz is referring to the POST screen.So the topic/post is indexable.http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=234844.0 (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=234844.0)But the post reply/ create topic screen is noindexedhttp://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=post;topic=234844.0 (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?action=post;topic=234844.0)Plus if the individual msg link is used that is noindexedhttp://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=234844.msg1512565#msg1512565 (http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=234844.msg1512565#msg1512565) It is duplicated content. (since it shows exactly the same content just via a slightly different url) [you may get penalised in search engines for duplicated content].
