Uh oh. I seem to have the same issue. Is there any way to check if the database is corrupted?
Is there a way to see a running log of all recent forum posts?
Is there a way to see a running list of all forum posts and replies in the order of when they were posted?
We've been able to eliminate most of the obvious bot-generated spam in our forum. However, some spammers are pretty sneaky about how they do it.
They'll join our forum, leave a few replies to existing topics that seem like legitimate replies (the content isn't very useful, basically just noise, but it also doesn't have any of the classic/obvious indicators of spam). Then, after waiting a few days, they'll find existing topics (usually ones that are several months old and haven't seen any action in a long time) and they'll start leaving replies that don't add any value, are plugged full of keywords and include links pointing back to other websites.
These spam replies are harder to identify because the moderators have to carefully read through ALL of the replies beneath a topic in order to pick them out. However, it would be easier if there was a way to see a chronological log of all forum posts dating back in time. This way, the moderators could just quickly read through every single post and reply and spot which ones have spammy links included in them.
Is there a way to see all forum activity listed out like this? If so, how?

I think you can use search to see all posts in order
