How do I run a check and pull the reason for block? No reasons are given in my logs except below

Spam-O-Matic Tagged email - [email address] - Spammer Found and rejected.

That doesn't specify the reason though

I have disabled username check in the meantime, thanks for that tip.

The reason is given in your log plane as day

This mod is freaking awesome! I have always been skeptical of spam mods for some reason but I had no choice but to try it out yesterday. My site has been getting hammered by spammers in the last week.

Installed it on 4.2.0 PL 2 without any hiccups and set it to check IP and email address, and it has blocked 29 spammers in about 20 hours, while letting 17 actual accounts through with no problems.

Thank you for this mod!

Great mod!
The only one feature I miss is - menu Submit Data to StopForumSpam in adminCP options or user's profile. Sometimes "fresh" spammer registrations are passing through stopforumspam check.

I think I responded to this previously. I'm using the plugin from the older vBSTopForumSpam add-on in combination with the Glowhost add-on:


Product: vBulletin
Hook Location: useradmin_edit_column1
Title: Submit to StopForumSpam.com
Execution Order: 5
Plugin PHP Code:


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

Plugin is Active: Yes


Added: see http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...postcount=1826 below

Do I need to manually add the stopforumspam api key into the plugin?

djbaxter 30 Jun 2012 19:07

You could. The Glowhost version already has a place to input the key in the settings so you could try it without any changes.

In case it doesn't work that way, what I did was leave the old product, which also provided a place to add the key, installed but disabled. Never bothered uninstalling it on the grounds of "if it ain't broke don't fix it" but not sure if it's actually required or not.

Thanks for that djbaxter. I changed the code a bit and added the API key directly.
Works great.

Where exactly do I put the API key? I'm trying to get this to work, too.

CharlieDelta 03 Jul 2012 20:52

Here is the code with my changes. Make sure to add your API Key below.

I have installed but not showing that stats on home page.Everything is turned on in the admin part an on the home it just says Spam-O-Matic Statistics an thats it.

valedumi 06 Jul 2012 15:16

Is it possible that the Spam-O-Matic Statistics to be visible only by the forum admin?
thanks.
---------------------------
I fix the issue. Solution:
In the Plugins & Products->Plugin Manager-> Product : GlowHost - Spam-O-Matic there is a plugin called "Stats render" edit this and a the beginning put this php code

if (is_member_of($vbulletin->userinfo, 6))
{

where number 6 is the Administrator group ID.
at the very end add the

}


this worked for me.
