Re: Fancy Stop SPAM

Just noticed something

Guest tries to register with email in sfs database, fancy_stop_spam picks that up and stops registeration

then,

SAME IP with 'clean' email address registers and posts spam

Is there some way you could include
prohibit new attempt from same IP (example; within 48 hours)  ? [ IF the guest has already been caught trying to register with know spam email address...]

Re: Fancy Stop SPAM

Currently this users blocks for 1 hour - const LIFETIME_SFS_EMAIL_IP_CACHED in code. Maybe need increased, but it can block others users from this IP. Need research and testing.

Re: Fancy Stop SPAM

Its nice idea, but i think that adding API key in forum settings is danger, may be result too many false-positive data will be submited from bad admins. May be better is adding API key as hidden options f.e. define in config.php for admin who realy understand how it works.

Was this feature implemented? I have the latest version installed and I didn't see where the API key could be intered in any of the files.

I get 5-10 spammers signing up per day that aren't in the StopForumSpam database. It would be nice to be able to push their info over to save the time of copying and pasting each one individually.

Re: Fancy Stop SPAM

Dear dimkalinux,

Could you add a short summary about how to get the "API key" of StopForumSpam API key for report spamers? Or just a direct url link should be fine. smile

Also, maybe it's a good idea to show antispam info in the "Introduction" page of user profile, so that admin can quickly view related info. Add a "Delete user (with/without posts)" button will help a lot too.

Thanks for your great work.

Excellent! I have installed it and will give it a workout.

Many thanks.

Re: Fancy Stop SPAM

I really like the feature to limit the number of HTML links in messages.

Is it possible to have it only limit HTML links for new users with less than 5 posts or a specific user group?

Re: Fancy Stop SPAM

LOVE the new version. It is a breeze to clean up the mess and report spammers in this version.

MANY thanks for the efforts!!!

This extension is superb, installed on my forum and caught 61 potential spammers in the first 48 hours !  Well Done !

Re: Fancy Stop SPAM

Could you please consider adding the evidence field to StopForumSpam reporting?
It really ought to submit a sample of the bot's garbage along with the report.

Re: Fancy Stop SPAM

JamesBellinger, it will be in the next version.

Re: Fancy Stop SPAM

By the way dimkalinux, minor thing I noticed:

On the forum settings, it says "StopForumSpam API key for report spamers".
Should be "for reporting spammers".

Probably also "Check email with" not "Check email by" StopForumSpam.

This is a great plugin by the way. It works amazingly well, far better than I'd hoped.
I notice you're listed Administrator.. will this become part of the PunBB default plugins at some point?

Re: Fancy Stop SPAM

Thanks.
Currently i`m working at 2.0 version - i hope i`ve fix this errors in new release in October.

Thanks for doing this.....

Re: Fancy Stop SPAM

Hi dimkalinux,

thank you for this extension - I hope it will work for me.

Maybe you can explain, what these settings do: honeypot protection, timeout and timezone protection.

Thanks

Re: Fancy Stop SPAM

Are you sure that are using version 1.4.2?
Please show #193-206 lines from a file include/common_admin.php

sad.. There are only 188 lines in common_admin.php... The last line is ($hook = get_hook('ca_new_function')) ? eval($hook) : null;

I used dreamweaver 8 as  the editor to view and open this file...

I  think the version is 1.4.2... Following is a copy/paste of my Administrator Panel
