In Plug-in Manager find the plugin Stats render - forumhome_complete change it so it looks like


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

First of all, I have to say that I am very impressed. In less than 15h, it already stopped 53 spammers to register.....

I do have some suggestions if I may.
1- Add a link visible for given groups to access easily the log
For instance, Admin/Moderators could click on the "Spam-O-Matic Statistics" title to access quickly the log to see if it is working properly or not (who has been banned/etc).

2- Allow to report thread to spam-O-matic.
Currently, the Spam-O-Matic option in moderation tools is only available in showthread moderation tools, whereas you have sometimes many threads that got automoderated that you could report very quickly as spam, if the Spam-O-Matic option was available from the forum view.

3- Moved deleted spam threads/posts to a SPAM forum
For instance, I only allow "soft delete" of spam messages to make sure that my moderators do not tagged as SPAM incorrect posts but that can result in several posts in a same thread or threads in forum that are deleted making the forum/thread difficult to read for admin/mod so by moving them to a dedicated spam forum, you can still go through them without cluttering the forum.

4-Manually report a user to spam-o-matic.
For instance, I have some users that only sent spams through PMs. I would like to report them to the spam databases but I cannot find a way to do that.

Thanks
Ludo

My logs are showing that users cannot be checked because there is a problem connecting to stopforumspam server. Anyone know what is causing this?

I don't know if this has been requested yet, but would there be a way to add an option for where to locate the stats on the forumhome? Right now it is set to:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.


but I changed it for my site to the following:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

yes in the stats render plugin at the top write this (first line of code)

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

at the bottom (last line)


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

that should do it

this could be because you have leaseweb ip ranges blocked you need to unblock those and then it will work

Don't have any IP ranges blocked at the server level. It had been working fine for months, and about 2-3 weeks ago it started just failing.

The error messages I get are
Spam-O-Matic Tagged username - Paibiddibboda Unable to connect to StopForumSpam.com. This is probably due to some temporary problems on their website: Unable to check. User passed to vBulletin registration system per your settings at 'StopForumSpam: Query

Spam-O-Matic Tagged email - weassadogrela@myfavmailbox.info Unable to connect to StopForumSpam.com. This is probably due to some temporary problems on their website: Unable to check. User passed to vBulletin registration system per your settings at 'StopF

Spam-O-Matic Tagged ip - 46.17.96.20 Unable to connect to StopForumSpam.com. This is probably due to some temporary problems on their website: Unable to check. User passed to vBulletin registration system per your settings at 'StopForumSpam: Query Connect

Obviously the server is working, but for some reason it can't be accessed.

Sounds like they have firewalled you or you have firewalled them. You can ask your host to check for you or ask on stopforumspam forums to see if you are blocked.

GlowHost, thanks for your efforts on making such an antispam tool. I get this message when I try to post after installing the spam-o-matic:
-----------------------
Warning: require_once(includes/functions_ghsom.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in [path]/includes/functions_newpost.php(443) : eval()'d code on line 5

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'includes/functions_ghsom.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/santifan/public_html/forums/includes/functions_newpost.php(443) : eval()'d code on line 5
------------------------
Any idea of what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks

Using 4.1.2 experiencing a problem where users promoted out of the Newbie group are having all posts go to moderation status. Even posts with no url's and no "Auto-Moderation: Bad Words" contained in the post.

The moderated threads are not being listed in the SOM log with any reason behind why they are being placed in moderation status. This is happening across multiple forums, and only affects users that were auto promoted by the SOM Newbie --> trusted user promotion system.

Once disabled, the problem seems to have gone away. However the affected users had to be merged into a new user id# because even after the SOM auto promote, and moderation was disabled...their posts alone were still going to moderation status.

I even tried manually placing these users into usergroups that are not subject to the spam filters...still no luck. :confused:

I will note...that I am still using the SOM system to deny registrations and moderate url posts. That aspect of the system works fantastic! Just seems to be a bug with the auto-promote / newbie system in SOM.

Did you upload functions_ghsom.php into your includes folder?

Thanks for the report. That is the first I have heard of this problem. Does anyone else have the same issue?

Would you kindly take a look at my post: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...&postcount=780

I'm open for all types of suggestions.

I am not sure what those errors mean. You might try disabling your other mods and then try again only with SOM enabled. Then re-enable them one at a time to see which one conflicts with SOM.

Does this work on VB 3.86?
