Bug solved with 2.4.18(.x), manual repair necessary (General)

… I also getting spam topics posted by guests that I cannot delete when logged in as Admin. I am set up to get a notify email of all new posts, for these spam posts that I cannot delete I get no notify email. Hope you can help my forum is getting overrun and I cannot delete these spam posts.

With version 2.4.18 we solved the cause of the problem. But the existing problematic postings are not affected by the solution. Unfortunately you have to delete these postings by hand with phpMyAdmin or a similar tool. You can detect the affected postings because they have a value for the field id but wether a real value for tid nor for pid. Both fields have a value of 0 although the field tid should have the same value as it id has.

As an example for the broken status a fictive posting with id = 129:

  id | pid | tid | …
 129 |   0 |   0 | …

With the corrected tid (same value as id) …

  id | pid | tid | …
 129 |   0 | 129 | …

… you would be able to delete the posting with any forum function.

Anyway, if you find the postings from the time before updating to 2.4.18, delete it inside phpMyAdmin.

Tschö, Auge
