Head over to compo.sr for our new site, and to our migration roadmap. Existing ocPortal member accounts have been mirrored.

Hi there, Is there a way to disable or make it harder for people to use the recommend function on the site?
To minimise spam being sent out by bots etc etc

This is one possible solution:

Admin Zone > Security > Permissions Tree Editor

Under Zone:Welcome….

Highlight Module:recommend

Scroll down and deselect the groups you don't want to see that option.

Hi Eric,
Thanks for that…. We have implemented that as I have noticed that there are people and programs using the recommend us feature for spamming.

I can see spambots, but you get "members" doing that? That's just very rude on their part.

Hi Eric,

No not members just automated stuff. Most members are good but as you know there will be one that is out to make life hard.
