That was fast smile

I don't have 1.3 installed, but I looked over the code.

I guess you did away with the Akismet table?

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

The bans table is already part of the core. Though, I think I should add a new table for Akismet-rejected posts, so admins can un-ban users or delete posts.

Yes, I meant the Akismet table.

Talking on the phone and posting has it's drawbacks wink

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

I'll start working on that.

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

Thanks Garciat!

Perfect timing really, I just had a forum spammed after upgrading to 1.3 and came looking for this extension. Much appreciated.

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

No problem. It still lacks some functions. I'm working on it.

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

Thanks Garciat. Can you do me a favor and update this post when you add functions? That way I know I am running the latest version.

I will let you know if I experience any issues with it.

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

Updated to 1.1.

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

Thanks Garciat smile

What is the easiest way to update extensions? Just upload the new version and copy over the old version, or should I disable and delete the old version and then upload and activate the new version?

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

Overwrite the old files with the new files, then on the Extensions Management page, you should get an option to update the extension.

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

Under Setup the field where I am supposed to insert my API key isn't clearly marked, it's just a text field.

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

Cool. Very useful extension.

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

What browser?

It looks fine to me on both Firefox 3 and IE 7.

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

Firefox 3. Looks like that on my home computer and at work.

In IE 7 the little checkbox is properly visible. But still, the section isn't tagged as where the Akismet API key should go. Nor do I know what the checkbox is for.

Also looks like my screenshot in the latest versions of Opera and Safari.

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

Re: [Release] Akismet Spam Protection

Ummm... when I install this on my forums, I get this...
