Wow, thanks for all the discussion. I can't follow all of it, but I think I got most of it.
I don't think I have ever installed Arantor's login fix mod. Maybe I misunderstood from the old SMF topic, but I thought upgrading would fix it, and I wouldn't need the mod fix. Do I need both the current portal mod version and
the login fix mod?
Oh, I have Arantor's CAPTCHA mod! But no, I don't see anything like a login fix mod in Package Manager.
I guess I'm still unclear about themes. If I'm running the current portal version, do I still need to do somthing about the themes?
I guess I could search the member list for those IPs. Then if they are members, I can find out which theme they're using. Right? I can find out what theme they're using by looking at their profile settings, right?
Is the current question, who is hitting the error, and are they just clicking where I posted the error message in the old topic?
Except for lurkalot, everyone who hits that error is a Guest. I have no way of knowing if they are a member who is legitimately trying to log in.
I saw one IP that hit it something like 15 to 20 times (different days, over a week or 2, but when it's on the same day, a minute or few seconds apart - that one seems sadly like someone who wants desperately to log in). Most IPs are just hitting it 1 to 4 times.
Do you want me to actually list some of the IPs?
If I pay very, very close attention, I might be able to catch an error happen, and use my analytics to see where they came from. Oooh, my analytics.... I don't see any evidence of people coming into my site from SMF. Although not everyone allows themselves to be tracked. Apparently lurkalot does not
Ok I'm going to disable that block now. I'll watch the error log and see what happens.
Thanks for your comments and attention
