Akismet Anti-Spam (3.6)
Mod Version: 1.1, by Jafo232 (Coder/Designer) Jafo232 is offline
Developer Last Online: Sep 2014 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 81
Released: 27 Nov 2007 Last Update: Never Downloads: 292
Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Additional Files  

NOTE: Direct port from my plugin from 3.5. If you are currently using that plugin, no need to upgrade even if you are using version 3.6.x of Vbulletin.

This extension will automatically check new posts against the Akismet spam rulesets and identify spam if it is posted on your site. All spam is set to moderated status until an admin/moderator approves/deletes it.

This setting can be set on a usergroup basis so only certain usergroups are scanned.

I have no affiliation with Akismet, I just know that it catches about 99% of all spam I get on my blogs.

You will need an API key to use this product, but they are free and you can get one immediately at wordpress.com when you sign up.

Installs easily, just upload the included files, and install the product file. NO TEMPLATE EDITS!

You should probably use a promotion strategy outlined here:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...3&postcount=18

This will reduce your Akismet usage and not filter your regular users who you are pretty confident will not post SPAM.

A good mod that works with this hack is the "Moderation Queue on FORUMHOME" hack here:

The only other thing you need to do is:

CLICK INSTALL

And yet, users frequently neglect to click either...

Yes, it uses Akismet, which is widely used in the blogging community, especially WordPress users.

I've not tested it personally, but it seems that you could post a message not containing SPAM content and then later edit that post and it is not checked by Akismet.

Is it possible to hook into the edit process to close this hole?

Probably possible, I just have no time to do it. If users are going to go that far to post spam, well, I suppose that would be one way around it, although it may very well be that the IP they are using is associated with SPAM so it would be taken care of when they post..
