most were from China who were doing SQL injection attempts according to the URL errors they were generating.
LOL!!! no kidding!? that's awesome! I'm glad you are secure enuf to prevent that. Do you know what an escape string is? Have you studied them, since you said you were studying ROR? PHP has the function my_real_escape_string that is heavily used by professionals to stop injection attempts.

We were not secure enough before, which is part of the problem. This software is much more robust.

I've added a count add-on as a test. Not too happy with it so far as I think it will affect performance. But you can see under the reply box some data, and also in the Lastest Posts widget on the right.
It's not a big deal if it affects performance, which we all like. Now go to bed for cryin out loud! :p

Actually, that is exactly what I will be doing! No doubt end up dreaming about web configuration again.

Working from Bahrain this morning...first time using the new site on a Gov computer and I am smiling like a kid at Christmas. Still working through the "newness" but I know this is going to be good.

Our future's so bright, we gotta wear shades...

I have a lot of old PMs (now called Conversations) and am approaching the limit of the number allowed...if that still applies.
Even if there is no longer a limit, its time to prune the list.

In the past it was easy to delete them in selected 'batches'
Whilst I can still select several at once, the options available don't include Delete.
Any ideas? Am I missing something obvious?

I think you're even ahead of me on this one, Colin. I don't see an option anywhere, in any menu, to "delete several at once". all I see on my end is this, and that's when I'm on a specific conversational page looking at the actual messages from another member:



sounds to me like the mods have more options than us lowly members.

@vba_php click on the envelope up top right, select show all, there should be checkboxes. When you select them it appears.
