Getting Enthusiast Fully Working

Recently, I have had problems with Enthusiasts, but slowly they are getting worked out. My most current problem is what happens after I approve someone after they had submitted to join one of my fan listings. They get a message saying that their submission was accepted, but that there was an error with sending them the confirmation email. That is one problem, and then the other is when I approve, it says failed to send email, so I think they both have to do with the same thing.

For some reason my Enthusiats settings isn’t keeping the box in this image saved


The SMTP Authentication box doesn’t stay ticked, so when I save it’s like I didn’t even tick it. Once I get that sorted, I think it will be fully functional, but finding that solution is the problem so far. Being that has been out of work for so long. They have the Board now, which is great, but people are starting to trickle in little by little. Hopefully it will be back and fully functioning soon. *fingers crossed* I dislike that my members don’t get an email saying they were approved.

If you come across this post, please direct me to the right place that can help me with this. Anyway I guess that is all. Oh I have acquired 2 more fanlistings. I know I said I wouldn’t be couldn’t help it. I have now the Monopoly fanlisting so if you like please join!! I also have the Siamese Cat fanlisting which I still have to put up and will do that tomorrow. So once that is up, be looking for an update with a link and maybe you will love to join.

Ok I am really going now. My hunny wants dinner. Have a great weekend.

Fanlisting and more updates

I have been feverishly working to update my listings, all fanlistings, namelistings, numberlistings, I have abandoned most of my cliques as I don’t have time for them anymore. I may have one, but will soon let that go as well. Since part of the has returned, only the forum, which can be found at, and there is now activity there. I have started to fix my forms which were not working. The only reason that happened, and I know it has been lazy of me. Is because the form on this blog wasn’t working. So I found out why. Fixed that, and also decided to fix the contact and affiliates forms on all my listings. There is quite a few of them too. So it’s taking me time, as I’m fixing those, but also editing some other things on the listings themselves, things I wanted to change before but never did, and now I did since I was in the listing doing some editing.

All contact forms and affiliates forms will redirect to the contact fanlisting form, where you can select the listing that you are wanting to contact me about, be it just a general question, affiliates requests, or broken link. I just spotted an error in my drop down list, so will have to fix that. Fanlistings will have one form, as there are a lot of them, and the other listings will all go on another form. It just makes it easier for me, and hopefully for anyone who has tried to contact me over the years. I have no excuse but pure laziness to not have fixed them.

I also had a sending error in my enthusiast script, so when I approved someone it wouldn’t send out an confirmation email, which upset me, but I didn’t know what the problems was. I finally figured out what it was. It was hosting related. I am hosted with and they won’t allow you to use an email address that doens’t exist on cpanel, for instance fans(@), I was using my gmail, so I had to go ahead and make an email and then use that in the script, and then make a forwarder so it would forward my email to my gmail, as I don’t like using domain emails. If the domain is down, then my email is down, that is why I never used one.

Anyway, I hope once I am done with that, I can fix other things, perhaps a few listings may get a layout change. Been ages since I have done that. I don’t see myself getting anymore fanlistings, I think I am just going to be joining, instead of owning any type of fan listing. Right, so that is it for now. Another update later on.
