User Database and Denying Access:
To access the User
Database and Deny Access functions, click on User Management from the
Management Control Panel.
Editing, and Deleting User Records:
User names are
added to the database when a user signs on to the board (in the case
of "Self-Sign-On" boards) or when the Manager Invites a new
user to join the board (in the case of "By Invitation Only"
boards). To invite a new user, just click the Invite New User button
and enter the user's name and email address. The user will be sent an
email with a generated password, and will be added to the database.
To Delete A User:
Highlight the user's name in the list at left, then click the Delete
To Edit A
User's Record: Highlight the user's name in the list at left,
then click the Edit User Record button.
Access To Your Board:
At times it may
become necessary to prevent a user from visiting your board. For
example, if a user persists in spamming the board with meaningless
messages or persists in flaming other visitors.
In this case you
can deny access to the board by entering the user's Internet IP
address (or a partial IP Address), or his or her email address
(Private boards), into the IP & Email Addresses To Deny
form, as shown below:
You can add IP
addresses or email addresses to this form in order to prevent a user
from accessing your board.
Adding a partial IP address will deny access to any user whose IP
address begins with the numbers you have entered.
To discover a
user's IP Address: When a user posts a message on your board, his
or her IP Address is saved as part of the message. Use your Browser
to display the message, then select "View Source" from your
Browser's menu. The User's IP will appear as an HTML comment after
the words "Posted By" as shown below:
"Posted by <!--220.127.116.11-->"
Note the IP
Address and add it to the above window. The user will be denied
future access for as long as the IP remains in the Deny list.
