How do we change the error message shown upon an unsuccessful registration? i.e. the message shown when a spammer is detected at registration.

I like email verification, not for bots, but simply to make sure every registered email address actually exists.

I'm less worried about using the Glowhost newbie system. OK, it's easy to set up, but it's a reinvention of the wheel in as far as vBulletin already provides the means, via usergroup promotions, to do exactly what the Glowhost newbie group does.

No worries. :up:

Onto another subject:

Had a post slip past "Auto-Moderation: URL Count" (set to 0) today.

I believe this to be the culprit:

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

The URL they posted began https: :)

Many thanks again and best wishes

You can modify that in the vBulletin phrase manager.

I'm getting a database error everytime I try to save changes to my Usergroup permissions:

Invalid SQL:
UPDATE vb_usergroup SET

MySQL Error : Unknown column 'akvbghsfs_akismet_permissions' in 'field list'
Error Number : 1054

I didn't get this error before the 2.0.2 update. How do I resolve this?

Which phrase is this exactly? I can't seem to find it. Edit: found it!

I think that is caused when you haven't completely uninstalled the previous version. If I remember correctly, it is an xml file in your Admin CP directory that is no longer needed for the current version. Find it and delete.

Hello!
This Product rocks!!
Very happy with it.
We did a small donation to StopForumSpam.com and Akismet :)

Quick question:
Is there a way to submit spammer's info/data to the spam databases (StopForumSpam) without the spammer having posted?
I ask, because we have gotten three spammers that have registered, haven't posted on the forums, yet their signatures are spam.
Instead of just deleting them, maybe it would be cool to "delete and submit".

Thank you for this awesome mod!! :)

Not yet. That functionality is coming in a later release as it is often requested.

You could cheat ;)
There's another program that allows an admin to log in as another user. You could log in as the spammer, make a post, and then report it. :D

Probably don't want to do that if your settings are set to send the IP address of the spammer to SFS otherwise you will end up banning yourself from registration on forums that run this mod.

Hello,
I've setup a brand new forum and just downloaded this as the first plugin/mod on the forum.
When installing/uploading the plugin xml file I get the following error.

Warning: file_exists() [function.file-exists]: open_basedir restriction in effect. File(/usr/home/tmp/php8rXcz1) is not within the allowed path(s): (/home/jappleton/:/tmp:/var/tmp:/usr/local/lib/php/) in [path]/includes/adminfunctions.php on line 2449

No idea what's wrong or what it means. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi there,

I've previously used your 1.2.x version but stopped it for a while, and now I found out that you've released a 2.x version.

I made sure to remove that /forum/includes/xml/bitfield_glowhostspamomatic.xml file, and then tried to install it by importing product-glowhostspamomatic.xml into "Products".

I immediately see a database error message:

Quote:

Database error in vBulletin 4.0.7:

Invalid SQL:
CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS `vbulletin_glowhostspamomatic_log`(
`date` DATETIME NOT NULL,
`ip` VARCHAR(15) NOT NULL,
`email` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
`username` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
`message` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,
`is_blocked` TINYINT NOT NULL DEFAULT "0",
`user_hash` VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
`user_id` INT NOT NULL
) TYPE=MyISAM;;

MySQL Error : You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'TYPE=MyISAM' at line 10
Error Number : 1064
I noticed there's an extra semi-colon at TYPE=MyISAM, but when I checked the product-glowhostspamomatic.xml out, there's only one semi-colon, not two as this error shows.

Any ideas what could be the problem? =/

you can submit spammers by building a form todo it in your admincp here's an example


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

allright almost there now to submit the form to SFS database you have two options

1) PHP with cURL support
2) PHP with sockets support


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

PHP through sockets


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

with this you need to check the http response either 200(success) or 403(forbidden) usage is the same as the cURL postfields above


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

i added this to the spamomatic log to check if your host supports either cURL or sockets call


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

You will need to check with your host on that. it seems like a possible misconfiguration in PHP.

Did you use the product manager to first remove the old version? It needs to be removed from there before installing the new version.
