  1. I had it too, several files over several sites, I fixed it manual.
  2. found the problem, it wasn't google as such. I'd not deleted a Joomlaboard forum, and as I had no link to it anywhere thought nothing of it. It was a test board, as the client wanted simple, I got them to go with SMF in the end. Anyway there where 600 posts about all kinds of iffy stuff, as there was no restriction for membership. So google was hitting lots and lots of links, they have now been deleted along with the extension, so I'll see how it goes.
  3. it's a small test site using Joomla, my main site which is quite a big forum gets about 400mb a month. they are very similar and have the same plugins but one has a variety of BBC news feeds, could this be an issue? at the end of the day I need google hits but is there a way to make things less intence? main site rpgrm.com 400mb new site lnwa.net over 1gb
  4. if google is hitting 1gb bandwidth, do you think that is cause for concern?
  5. Thankyou.... looks like something was wrong my end, fixed it now and found the bits I needed.
  6. I tried just editing the test.html. as soon as I change a field name, such as message to address and test it it say required field message not filled in, and I can' find anywhere where the required fields are defined, even a search for 'message' reveals nothing. In short i have lost my rag with this programme as it isn't very intuitive. So are there any other I can use that don't charge for this privileged?
  7. yep, the test form unmodified work fine, as soone as I make changes I get the error, it most be something daft I'm doing.
  8. I may have found the problem, but I still can't get it to work. I created a form, using dreamweaver, added dodoesmail.php as the action then unploaded it to test. I get this error: DodosMail Error - the required field is not filled. Back yet i haven't made any of the fields required, any ideas. fiddling with the test form gives me the same result, so i don't know where the problem is.
  9. It is dodos mail Found the problem, there's an extra # in the code before the your email = bit, I just removed that and it works perfectly. I only spotted it when I went to copy it into here, silly me. Thanks for the help.
  10. I'm trying to settup a basic form to capture quote requests by email, after reading some threads I choose to use Dodo, unfortunatly I can't get it to work. I've uploaded the php file and the test.html, changed the email in the php as indicated, I fill out the form then get this error when I submit it: DodosMail Error - the owner's server is experiencing techinical difficulties. Please email use to send your email. Any ideas? and no I'm not technical
  11. the internet can be a small place, that was my question on SMF community forums. I'll try what they say but I'll make it 1, as time isn't a problem I just need to send them out. Thanks as ever guy.
  12. When I had IPB I could set the number of emails and period between them is there any way of doing something like that with SMF, otherwise I can't send my newsletters out. My php isn't so good, so go easy on me if it's a coding thing.
  13. I'm using the .htaccess TCH set, I have tried <IfModule mod_security.c> # Turn off mod_security filtering. SMF is a big boy, it doesn't need its hands held. SecFilterEngine Off # The below probably isn't needed, but better safe than sorry. SecFilterScanPOST Off </IfModule> and the fix on this forum, but I get a 500 error, it only seems to be a few users having the problem, so i'm at a loss as to how to solve it.
  14. I'm having problems with mod_security on my SMF forum, I have a few members who get access errors when posting, but the fixes I've found just break the whole site. If I delete the www root .htaccess file will that cause me big problems?
  15. Thanks, it doesn't sound like the kind of package I'm looking for, which is a shame as I know what this place can do, I'll look at one of the white label style offerings. But if I don't like what I see I'll just go for paying for a copanies first year of space here and leaving the rest to them, as I don't want my clients upset with bad hosting, and I know the hosting is very good here. as a side question, can I pay for hosting a basic account for one year for someone else, then remove my payment info so it isn't renewed using my details?
