XOOPS Kicked Me Out

    I've been using XOOPS for the last couple of years. I have dozens and dozens of posting on their support forum site. Today I was somehow "black-balled" preventing me from logging into the support forum with the message that "IP Protector has blocked my IP address."

    Does anyone have a clue about this. How do I get in touch with XOOPS. What do I do with all of my clients...?

    Help anyone?

      I'm at my wits end, I dont have the foggiest idea what to do - I've tried everything that I can try and still I cannot login to the Admin section - its been months now ....:( I'm seriously considering an alternate CMS.

      Email me your Website URL, your login/password, and I'll take a look into it.

      I sent your message to the web team. It happened to me once, too, when I was putting a slash-asterisk in my messages. Took a day to get fixed, and I was down (except for using a lynx client) during a client-crunch time too. I hope we get it removed for you soon. Any ideas what happened? Were you posting, refreshing/requesting a number of pages really fast, or such?

        I'm having a similar problem.

        Posted my usual IP and information about it below in the thread. Any chance you could give me a hand also or tell me who to contact?

        It began when I tried to login (about a week ago). It would accept my login then send me back to the login screen. I thought...OK, I'll change my password. From that point on I bacame the "evil invader with the nasty IP." The only way I could post my problem was to but a $29.95 piece of software to hide my IP...something I never thought I'd need, but it worked...real funny to me!

        Thanks very much for your response!

      Your IP, as posted here:


      is not blocked on XOOPS.

      So there must be something else.

        Well, I'm not locked out any longer but what started this whole mess was when I tried to login, the screen would say "thanks for logging in" then return me to the original login screen...in fact listing me as not being logged in.

        Now I come to find that this doesn't happen if I use Firefox to log in. The version of IE I was using was 6.x...

        Go figure.

          I'm glad that this has been sorted out.

          What can we say? Go Firefox!!! :)

      Same problem I had. Been out for 2 days now.

      IP is :

      I just get this even at xoops.org :
      You are registered as BAD_IP by Protector.

      It would be helpful if the message had an email address to send problems to in cases like this. I tried contact@xoops.org and support@xoops.org just trying logically and BOTH bounced among others.

      Any ETA on how long it takes to get this fixed?

        What is your user ID on XOOPS? I'll check it out for you.
        Obviously it's not r0yb.
