Moderate New Registrations Based On IP Geographical Origin
Mod Version: 1.00, by Jafo232 (Coder/Designer) Jafo232 is offline
Developer Last Online: Aug 2016 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 4.0.0 Rating: (16 votes - 4.81 average) Installs: 210
Released: 27 Dec 2009 Last Update: Never Downloads: 680
Not Supported Uses Plugins Additional Files  

This mod will put any new registration into moderation so you can either approve or deny based on the physical location of the IP address. If the IP is located in a country that you white list, the registration will go through as normal.

This may be different for everyone else, but on my forums, I have yet to have a Russian IP sign up for anything other than posting SPAM. This plugin has moderated them all!

I hope to have time to eventually expand this to do other things. This also works on 3.8.x.

You MUST download the zone files from this site:

http://www.ipdeny.com/ipblocks/

The free license does not allow me to include them with the product, plus it is better to download the latest files anyway.

No real screenshots to show here, sorry.

Changelog:

12/20/2008
  • Coded the routine in, instead of using external whois program.
  • Now compatible with Windows
  • (39 download of 1.0)
2/11/2009
  • 77 downloads at this point
  • Rewrote application to use zone files rather than relying on Arin
12/27/2009
  • Verified it works for 4.0
To upgrade, READ THE README, and re-install product (select overwrite).

Nice, tagged for now (until I go live with VB4). I'm having a problem lately worse than usual with spammers myself.

What country codes did you exclude from moderation, may I ask? US only? Most of my good registrations are in the southeast region of North America

Thanks for this mod.

The user that registers get any warning about it? I mean, he knows that his registration is pending?
