HELP! Someone got ahold of my username and password and meesed with my website. I have already taken steps by changing my password and submitted a ticket.

Now My hubby puts a post on forums and someone edited it and made a statement comming from guild portal below is a copy of it.

GuildPortal Response:
    Sounds to me that if you got rid of a few people in this guild thatthe drama would go away, for example, specsquee, ironmullet, herra. Youguys im sure know who they are, and by reading the posts on yourforums, those are the 3 that are the worst.

I need someone from guild portal to contact me asap. I am a paying costumer so please help me. Don't take 2 days to do it either! After all this person who is hacking my website is pretending to be you!

Looks like one of your forum admins deleted the post,  or removed their little added comment?  Either way, if they're editing someone else's post, they have forum admin rights on your site.

yeah demoted everyone to regular member so that I am the only one with admin rights. But earlier someone logged into the site under my name and messed with it like putting up porn links and writing obsene things about me and a fellow guild member. I also think this same person messed with our vent. I know vent has nothing to do with guild portal but I was wondering if I could get a list of all the ip adresses that accessed the site from 7 am to around 2 pm today.

And yes I did change my password in case you were wondering.
 If I could get a list I could narrow it down and figure out who this was that did this and take the proper legal steps to make sure this person can never harrass another person again. And by legal i mean banning as well as reporting to the proper authorities.

Epherra, I believe I read somewhere that guildportal will not give IP addresses with out a court order. It seems you are taking steps to cure the problem. Make sure that only you have admin rights. Have all officers change their passwords immediately. If the problem persists, you can also boot everyone out of the guilld and have your members re-join. While this all sounds like a pain, it may be necessary. Whomever is changing posts, deleting posts, etc...has Admin rights...perhaps to the whole site, maybe just to selected areas like forums, etc...You can go through all your members and make sure that no one else has admin rights to anything. (Make sure none of the boxes are checked when you click on member admin and their names.) Hope this helps some and I hope this problem ends for you. Good luck.

BTW, just out of curiousity. How did you setup the scrolling message that goes across the top of your screen on your site? Think I'd like to add that to mine. (Thanks in advance for your help with that.)

under the style and setting on costum banner paste this code and simply change the sentance to what you want it to say.

<TR><span style="color: rgb(0, 255, 255); font-weight: bold;"><font color="#ffd700" size="18"><marquee loop="infinite"><strong>Ok Back to business! Calendar is up make sure you look at all the days as some have 2 events on the same day! It is scheduled all the way till next tuesday!</strong></marquee>
$block[bannerimage]

Also make sure you check the box at the bottom to enable it.

yupers thats correct.

And so far this person hasn't been able to change anything but I am hoping if it does happen again that if I can't get the ip addresses maybe I can give guild portal mine and they can check it for me and take thier own actions against the person responcible. Either way right now we are good I am the only one with admin rights at all and everyone else is just a member.

Oh and just want to thank aaron for posting on our guild forums. It was nice to see that you came to look and was very speedy doing so Love you Aaron your the best

epherra, glad to here things are working out. Here's hoping you have no future problems. About Scrolling message. I did it...thank you. One question, it moved the Login and character/setting stuff to the bottom of the page. Does it have to go there or can I move it back to the top? Just curious. Thanks again for all your help.
