2017-08-03 17:54:17 -0500 commented answer is it possible to use our own SMTP or define the "from:" email address ?

We have the same issue. Our anti-spam infrastructure flags these messages as Forged and they get classified as SPAM. Be

2016-10-07 16:11:38 -0500 asked a question Why are underscores not showing up in postings?

On our Askbot site, I need to make a comment about a variable with underscores in the name. However, when I post the message, the underscores result in the word being italic. How do you "escape" or prevent characters from being interpreted?

2016-02-25 15:30:19 -0500 asked a question The comment feature on this site seems broken

When I try to comment on a question, I don't get a comment block. It turns into some broken reference.

2016-02-25 15:30:19 -0500 asked a question Is deleting a user supposed to delete the personal groups too?

I just deleted a bunch of spambot generated accounts (over 1k) but it doesn't seem to delete their corresponding _personal_X "group". Is it supposed to?

2016-02-25 15:30:18 -0500 asked a question Is there documentation for user settings?

In particular, I'm trying to customize the notification settings for an account, but it's not obvious what the different options mean. Is there documentation on what different settings are for? Example, what does "Choose email tag filter" mean? How do you define the tags you're interested in filtering etc?

2016-02-25 15:30:18 -0500 asked a question How do you access the django shell via a hosted instance?

Is it possible to access the django shell to programmatically make bulk changes on a hosted instance? I need to Block a large number of spam generated users but I don't know if I can do this on the host site. I've been using the /admin webUI but I have a large number to modify.


2016-02-25 15:30:17 -0500 asked a question Is it possible to access the django python API on a hosted instance?

Similar to the other question "spambot-registrered-1000-users-command-to-delete-last-1000-users", except how do you access that API on a hosted instance? I have hundreds of bot created users that I want to block. How do you do that programmatically if you can't access the backend directly?

2015-09-09 14:11:52 -0500 commented answer Do blocked users get email updates?

We recently started getting a ton of bounced emails due to accounts created by spam bots that were subscribed to All Questions. Is there anyway to bulk block a large number of accounts? I'd rather not have to block them individually.

2015-06-24 19:35:26 -0500 answered a question how to disable registration of new users?

We were getting a ton of users created by spammers too. Depending on which version of Askbot software you're running, you can enable the ReCapatcha feature (under Settings > Keys for external services) for both user creation and question submissions. If you enable those two features, it should cut down on the number of spam users and posts.

2015-06-23 13:03:41 -0500 commented question How to get e-mail notifications for anonymous questions?

I have a similar issue too. I turned off moderation in favor of auditing and the email notifications stopped working. Do you only get notified if you turn on moderation?

2015-06-22 19:52:06 -0500 asked a question How do I insert profile variables in a custom template?

I'm customizing my Askbot hosted site via the configuration options. How do I access profile variables like the user's name or userid for custom web pages? Example, I'm editing the Help page text. Is there a way to add the user's name into the help page?
