Hi, Im running XOOPS2.0.7 and this morning noticed a malicious new username. after looking at the email address of the new user, i checked the domain name... it was not registered. So, my concern is, how can a user gain registered user access with an invalid email address? I checked the profile and looked at the last login date/time. This does not seem to match with the access log.

Any ideas would be great... what is done on XOOPS about possible security holes?

Thx, lavaburst

irmtfan is right on.

After installing the newbb module in the modules admin, the you need to make it available to the anonymous group of users by doing:

Admin -> Groups -> Anonymous users -> and check box the newbb forum module to give them access to read messages.

At this point anonymous can post as well, so just like irmtfan said you need to:

forum admin --> edit forum --> Access Level :registerd users only

Then boom. Anonymous can access/read forum messages, but has to register as a user to participate in the forum discussions.

I hope that helps./

Left Block padding

Hi was wondering what exactly was done to bring the content in the blocks a little more to the right, off the edge.

The default theme in XOOPS (currently) seems to put everything on the left edge with no margin.

I was checking the Style and HTML and noticed that this might be whats doing it in the CSS on xoops.org:

td#leftcolumn div.blockContent {padding: 2px 0px 2px 3px; line-height: 110%; padding-left: 15px;font-size:11px;}


If this is it, why is there no left-padding on the right hand blocks ? there doesnt need to be but they are both using the blockContent class.

Can anyone clear this up for me?
