Recently I have had a small problem of people joining our vent and spamming crap due to the "join this Server" link on the vent information part of our webpage.  Is there any way to make it so only members can see the vent into content box of my welcome page?  I have looked everywhere and if there is a way I can not see it.  If you can not make it so only members can see if does anyone know of a Ventrillo Spy type thing that does not have the link to join the server?  Thing is when they click that they do not even need to know our vent password, which defeats the whole purpose of it.  Im getting tired of having to ban all the stupid people that join and spam so any help would be greatly appreciated.

My guildportal site is Virtue and you can see the vent thing I am talking about  on the right side of the welcome page.

First off, your link does not work. I had to go to the Guildportal homepage and search for your guild which there is more than one VIRTUE even in Final Fantasy (which is what I am assuming you are talking about).

I am fortunate that I have not had this problem yet but you could always edit the area and delete the unwanted messages if you are superadmin and then remove the players from your membership. Hope this helps.

I have fixed the link.  The thing is the page is a HTML thing and I cant just cut out the "join this server" link and I can not set that one content box so that only members can see it without making the whole welcome page for members only.  I may be missing something but im pretty sure ive tried everything and this may not be possible.

It is a WoW guild, not a FFXI guild.

The way I keep my VoIP server and password secret to all but my group members was to put some info about the VoIP server in a content box on the home page with a link to a forum thread that was blocked to all but members.

It was only on this forum thread that members were given the servers full name and password, as well as any other info that was needed to log on.

I know I can do this but I really like the virtual display of ventrilo that is shown and I would just like to keep it the same, but restrict it so only members can see it or if you know of a ventrilo spy program that doesnt have the link to "Join this Server"

Use a password available to only guild members to access Vent is the first place to start, if you haven't already.  By clicking Join THis Server, it should still require the password to be entered.  No pass = no entry.


Second, you could put the vent content box on a page only accessible to members.  in the control panel, you can select Site Pages then click Display Options and set the access level to Members.  Viola!  No more randoms are able to see said page.

I thought about that too.. but too bad there is not a feature to allow members only for each section that you create on your home page. 

I would like to see something I put on the home page, i.e vent being only viewable to those who are members as opposed to be open to the public.

As for vent invaders --  If its passworded then people can't use any link to log on to your vent.
