Hey

I do not mind waiting for 2.0 as this isnt a major issue, just annoying. When do you estimate it will be released?

It all depends on if we win Mod of the Month this month or not :) In any case sometime after the 1st of Oct

Ok great ;)

Maybe Im not understanding it correctly, but what about profile / blog spammers? We get quite a lot of them, as they are trying to avoid the required post count for posting links. Would be good to report them to stopforumspam when we ban those spammers.

We will probably add functions for this in a later release but chances are they are not going to make it into the blogs or profiles if you place them in the "New Users" group which requires a certain amount of legitimate posts before they are moved to the registered users group. The Registered Users group may or may not have blog or comment permissions based on your settings.

Your New Users group (Newbies) should not have profile or blog options available to them, and should have a very limited feature set.

Once they have proven their worth, they graduate to registered users. What you do with them from there is up to your personal configuration settings in vBulletin.

Profile fields are very useful to identify valid signups. Problem is that spammers will fill these fields with spam links. Blog can be restricted by usergroup settings. Profile fields are part of registration.

Try the new 1.2.7 that I have put up on the main download page. This should resolve the issue for most (hopefully all) of you.

When I click submit user to StopForumSpam.com in the users profile in the AdminCP, then I go to the website and look in My Spammers, they are not listed. I have the right API key, is there something else I need to do?

GlowHost.com 23 Sep 2010 17:18

Your best bet is to ask that question on the StopForumSpam.com website. They have a forum in there that may have the answer or you can surely ask them if there is some delay before the results become available when submitting details via the API.

This is their response.........
From our point, no, a correct API is all you need but youll need to ask the author about the rest, on the vbulletin thread as I dont think he comes here too often.

So, they are throwing it back to you.

GlowHost.com 23 Sep 2010 19:24

I don't run their website so I have no idea where it goes after you submit it. I just know it ends up in their database. They might be doing something like not displaying the results immediately to conserve on server resources, but they will know the answer for sure.

Try to submit some garbage user that you have made on your forum, then try to register again with that address after submitting it to SFS, it should be detected by the SPam-O-Matic firewall when you try to register again.

But for the sake of keeping this thread on topic, please post the URL to your thread on their forum so that others with the same question can get the answer. I will post over there and try to get a better answer as well, once I have the link.

Hey

I installed this today. Have not tested it yet (no opportunity to) BUT I did do the update post counts which is where I was able to get the error before and it is now fixed. So seems to me you figured it out dude. I voted for you as mod of the month. You deserve it.

after installing the mod, I get error 500 when a user tries to register. The username is created, but e-mail is not dispatched and member isn't notified. Also when deleting a user form admincp I get error 500 as well. Disabling the product makes everything function normal. Any suggestions?

500 is an Internal Server Error. Which usually means a file permissions or .htaccess issue. You can check or have your server admin check the logs to see what they say regarding the Internal Server Error. Maybe your host can fix it for you. But befoe asking them, you should try to re-upload the files per the install documentation. Perhaps you are missing something or something was corrupted during your FTP session. Once uploaded make sure you have the proper permissions set and that the file is owned by the correct system user..

Unfortunately, after installing the latest version (and upgrading to vb4.07) this breaks the user editing function after you ban a user and ask to include their posts to be deleted. If I try to edit any user via the control panel, I get a DB error. If I try to send a PW confirmation reminder, same thing ... database error. I disable the product and everything works normally.

Database error in vBulletin 4.0.7:

Invalid SQL:
DELETE FROM tfltm_post WHERE userid=4388);;

The userid is the banned user and his posts. Now, on any user editing function, this error is generated.
