You have to go to the users profile. There you can delete them.

Version 3.x Mod Discussion and Development / Email alerts for new stories posted?
« Last post by JessicaR on October 06, 2017, 11:50:01 PM »
Is there a way to get an email alert when a new story (not just a "favorite" story) is posted and then updated?  (Even from "validated" authors?)

As an admin of the site, I would like to know when something new is being posted so that I can monitor things in real time...

My last site got hacked badly (and quickly) and I couldn't restore from the back-up, so I'm trying to build in as many protections as possible...

Sorry to put question for such old answer, but I can't find this options on Users page... I looked through Members on Admin page and I found a member that was clearly a spammer, but I have no option to delete him. I am running 3.5 version of efiction... (yes I know I should update to 3.5.5, but so far everything worked ok and I didn't want to tickle a sleeping dragon)...

Version 3.x General Support / Re: Code to add CAPTCHA verification before posting a review?
« Last post by Sue on September 26, 2017, 11:31:41 PM »
It's not what you were after but I've got to say, after installing "Bad Behaviour" on my site, I not only don't have any spam reviews, I don't have any new spam accounts.

It's pretty easy to install. On my site at the moment "Bad Behaviour has blocked 191 access attempts in the last 7 days." (but there have been genuine new members, so it's not blocking everything).

Version 3.x General Support / Code to add CAPTCHA verification before posting a review?
« Last post by JessicaR on September 26, 2017, 03:30:25 AM »
Hi all,

Does anyone know how/where to paste a bit of code that would make someone enter a CAPTCHA verification before being able to submit a review?  We have these on registration and in the "contact us" forms, so I'd love to add this to the review section...

Thanks!

Jessica

I see there's a new home page (if it's not all that new, that just goes to show how often I end up here!) powered by WordPress... is there any possibility of eFiction turning into or branching into a plugin? That would be pretty darn amazing and probably take a lot of the work out of rebuilding eFiction 5 from scratch.

Nonetheless, I'm pretty darn committed to it, at least until AO3 releases its software (which hopefully won't come first! They've been in beta forever) or I can find a good fanfic archive WP plugin. I reiterate that I would happily donate even just a few dollars a month toward a Patreon with other fans in the hopes of it giving Sheepcontrol more time to work on the software, or else pay someone to make headway (and get any annoying tasks out of the way).

I have been suggesting the same thing to the current caretakers of the code, to start a patreon or kickstarter and market the software as a DIY Fanfic Repo software and possibly turn it into a business licensing the software.

Will it make them a million dollars, no, but it would be a decent chunk of change in their pocket. Even if they keep it open source, they could do like Linux where there is the "Official" code line, and other people are allowed to make their own flavors but there will always be the "Official" distro.

3.x Skin Download / Re: Epiphany (responsive)
« Last post by artphilia on September 06, 2017, 08:46:41 PM »
Ok. I think I found a solution.

It's easier to add the code right after that line (should be around line 403)

Code: [Select]
<link rel='stylesheet' type='text/css' href='$skindir/style.css' /> \n
That is where I added it a few times later. Let me know if it works.

Is the installer ready? I'd love to try out a fresh install for a new archive I want to set up.

same here. I have a 3.5.5 install that is at the very beginning and if I could install 5, I would scrap what I have and start over. Some of the "Responsive" skins that I've downloaded don't want to work correctly with 3.5.5.

So I'd much rather just jump to the most modern version and start from scratch there instead of building a 3.5.5 install and only try to upgrade later.
