I'm getting this error when making a new post after installing the update

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_BOOLEAN_OR in /home/xxxxxxx/public_html/includes/functions_newpost.php(433) : eval()'d code on line 29

Phalynx 12 Aug 2010 19:53

What about existing users? Are there any plans to check existing users against stopforumspam and offer the possibility to delete the users?

Hmm, have you tried re-installing it? Do you have any other modules or manual template modifications running on your boards?

We considered that in the beginning but it presents some problems, especially on larger boards. StopForumSpam has a 5000 query per day limit, so we did not want to overload their servers. Boards that have more than 5000 members would have to setup a scheduled task and that could take a very long time to complete. The other issue as that most spammers are caught right away and rarely come back to do anything if they have not already done so in the short period of time after their registration.

Yes uninstalled and re-installed, same error. Got loads of mods and a few manual templates modifications.

I've gone back to v1.1.2 it works fine for me :)

Right now my boards exists since few years and your modification has just appeared. In the long timeframe there were many spam account. Some I deleted manually, some not. there are around 350 accounts which are suspected to be spam accounts. Deleting them manually would require much efforts. vBulletin does not offer automatic deletion of them.

Automatically scan and delete/ban accounts would be a real help with this. There are not only boards out there with over 5000 accounts. Just the effort to manually check them is huge.

A brilliant mod, which combines a few things like Keyword Checker and StopForumSpam into one, though I have found one major feature missing.

For the Keyword checking, the only option is Auto-moderation. Sadly with the amount of spam bots about that moderation queue can be over 100 long in the morning every day, with an old VB3.8 plugin we use to just deny anyone with less than 3 posts who hits a keyword, would it be possible in a future version to add the option to either send to moderation, or just stop the thread being posted?

Cheers all the same, a great addon :)

Error with vBulletin 4.0.6 by creating an article:
PHP Parse error: parse error in \includes\class_dm_threadpost.php(1766) : eval()'d code on line 4

It's the hook threadfpdata_presave.

Can you fix this error:?


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

If you are getting this error:

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

it would be nice to know version number of your vB.

Do you mean in the CMS, blog or in the forum? If you can give me details on what you do to get that error I will try to track it down on this side.

CMS Article. As I described I created a new article and clicked Save. The message appears and the article is not saved. If I disable your mod, it works.
I have also disabled automoderation, but this has no effect.

I still don't see the point of it. How often do you see a 3 year old suspected bot resurface and start posting spam? Never I guess. You might as well keep those users and make your forums look like they have more members than they do.

I am not saying it isn't possible that your request will make it into this mod, but it is unlikely anytime soon.

Thanks.

Yes that is possible, do you have an example of the old mod so I can see how it was handled?

We have such bots posting after years of silence. Also it does not make any sense to have dead accounts just to show more users. I love to keep my forums clean.

Anyway, if you don't implement such a thing, I will do it as I need it.
