dmi: Firmware registration failed

I have installed Gentoo kernel 4.14.y from dmesg shows the following errors

How can I fix them and update to the latest stable kernel?

over 100 scanner requests 5 min after domain registration

First off, I am no security expert!

Yesterday I registered a .cf domain, I needed it for about 10 minutes. About 5 minutes after domain registration I got over 100 scanner requests (I checked all requests, all are automated scanner requests like ZmEu etc.) in under 10 seconds.

  1. Considering the amount in such a short period and so soon after registration, am I being targeted or is this kinda everyday business for a .cf domain?
  2. All requests are exclusively over port 80. I had a few more ports (443,…) open. I am not sure how to interpret this?!
  3. All my things are written in c/c++ (sockets, openssl,…), is there a up to date list or something about common attacks targeting specifically c/c++ servers and how to prevent them?


I host the things on my own, on a few server. Further the services are always the same (same ports), same static ip, but only for a short period always linked to a different domain. And it was the first time I used a .cf domain. Now I am simply a bit afraid to repeat the process, because yeah if I am really beeing targeted I should check everything twice first.

WP Install: Event registration – registered by participant id

I’m sure I’m overlooking something obvious and hope someone can point me to the answer.

We had an event where people could purchase a ticket for themselves and guests (up to 3). That’s all good. The thing is, I can’t figure out how to run a report which shows the purchaser and who their guest/s is/are. I HAVE figured out how to see the “registered by participant ID” # (see below), but I’d love to see the name of the participant who registered the guest and I can’t figure that out. I’d like to be able to see a report which shows the Registrant –> Guest(s)

enter image description here

It’s possible I set this up incorrectly from the get-go – I’m a Civi newbie – but I appreciate any guidance anyone can offer!


Are late registration / late entry poker tournaments the norm?

I want to play in a poker tournament that doesn’t have a really elongated late registration phase. Is this a possibility online or is this pretty standard now – it’s proving standard in my experience of 888 and Poker Stars.

I’m finding that tournaments end up being really elongated as more and more players pile in past the commencement time, and I’d prefer to play in something more time-limited. I’d be happy with a short late-registration period.

CiviEvent: how to set up separate online event registration forms for different participant roles?

I would like to know if it is possible to set up separate online registration forms for different event participant roles within one event.

For example, I would like to use a different additional contact profile for speakers than for participants.

In the past I’ve managed this type of customization all on one form with Javascript and a custom .tpl, but this time I’d really prefer 1) not to rely on the registrant to pick their own role and 2) not to allow roles to see the data fields used with other roles. Ideally, I’d like to be able to give a separate form link to speakers than to regular participants.

(I’m surprised I haven’t found anything about this topic; all posts I’ve found have to do with using the Additional Participant forms)

System deets: Joomla 3.8.12, CiviCRM 5.3.1

Customizing BuddyPress registration form template, not just registar.php

I know that general modifications can be made to register.php, but it still does not provide direct access to the inputs or labels in any meaningful way. I want to add additional blocks to better organize groups of fields. Currently using BP 3.2.0

Basically BP allows modification to the elements surrounding it.

For example (


bp_nouveau_signup_form(); Gets called in template-tags.php: However, this file is a direct part of the plugin and can’t be overwritten in the same manner as register.php

There doesn’t appear to be a transparent and clean way modifying the form structure.

Customer registration reporting is not working

Customer registration report is not working in sitecore commerce. I am using sitecore commerce 8.2 update 3 and sitecore 8.2 update 5.

In Experience analytics in Commerce tab, Customers report is unable to track analytics of customer registration while it able to track analytics related to below

  1. The four tables are:

    "Customers by total order amount"
    "Customers by number of orders"
    "Contacts by total order amount"
    "Contacts by number of orders"

Where to check failure pipeline which causes this issue?

Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks & Regards.

Is there a way to update a partial refund for an event registration and associated contribution?

On 4.7.15

Tried to update a contribution record from Pending Refund to Completed (not integrated with accounting software)

Got “Cannot change contribution status from Pending refund to Completed” message

Customer registered on-line (we use Drupal) but made a selection error that requires a small refund. I was able to change selections from within Civi, and prices updated correctly. Now that the refund has been processed through, I want to update the Contribution record.
