Well, yes, it could be useful for all if it is programmed into mod.

For start, you could try to use this:


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

Wrap part where URL should be showed in postbit, and of course change x with appropriate usergroup. I think this should work.

Thanks! Does $post[usergroupid] work on vb3 as well?

I'm not sure if there's a correlation or not, but after I updated from vB 4.0.x to 4.1.3, there seems to be more bots spamming my forum. Am I the only one, or did anyone else experience this as well?

Yes, it should. Just use without vb:if, use only if.

Great mod thank you..has stopped over a 1000 spammers in 3 months.

Since the upgrade to 4.1.3 from 4.1 though I have noticed that the Ban user and report as spammer options are gone from the user profile that is access from the Acp.
You used to be able to submit the user as a spammer and ban them at the same time...that was a great feature...any chance that is being worked on?

Thanks again for a great mod

Profile banning options were removed in version 2 if not earlier so its been gone for a long time. See the FAQ on the first page first post for more information.

I installed and configured this mod, but I want to see the statistics. Well in the first screenshot it should be in tab Statistics & Logs, however my isn't ? Where can I find it? Also the mainpage of my forum I see I have a "Spam-O-Matic Statistics", this is empty.

:confused:

Try re-installing the mod, perhaps it was not installed correctly. Instructions can be found in the readme file.

Thank you!

MySQL Error : Unknown column 'akvbghsfs_akismet_permissions' in 'field list'

To fix this I had to remove an old file called :
?/forum/includes/xml/bitfield_glowhostspamomatic.xml
So make sure you remove this file if you are upgrading, this file is not included in the new 2.0 version.

You're a life saver! Thank you! :p

I think this is probably the single best spam preventing hack I've ever used. Great job!

I recently moved the forum to a new server. I have been using GlowHost-Spam-O-Matic. It was working fine until I moved the site to the new server. So, I tried uninstalling and re-installing the latest version of Spam-O-Matic. I am still getting many spam attempts to register per day. How can I get this resolved?

If you use the same web host, just a different server, would ask them what is different about the server configuration. Otherwise you would need to provide error messages. its pretty impossible to say without more information.

What if you or one of your MODs accidently banned somebody via this MOD? Can you request for the IP, User Name, Email to be taken out of the databases?

I personally don't want to ban somebody legit and then denied at another site.
