Not exactly.

What had happened is I have a script located in a different directory that uses the datamanager to create forum posts. When this happens, the hook user_presave is called, and your plugin executes, which leads to it trying to require the plugin file in another directory.

I see. Well, this mod wasn't really written with anything outside of vB.

It was written to work with a stock version of vBulletin. I can't really try to support code for the way everyone might have their individual sites set up, especially for things running outside of vBulletin. You should be able to modify the source code on your own to get it to work with whatever you have setup outside of vB. I suppose if this becomes a big issue for other people I can consider trying to support setups as yours, but that wont be until version 2 is released.

It looks like there are some leftover phrases for settings that are no longer used. Also, I don't see anything under Users -> Search for users in the admincp like the pic shows. Has that been removed?

Seems lately the auto submit is not working anymore for my site. I end up having to submit spammer manually. Anyone else having this issue?

Curious issue.... it seems that all my of RSS Feed Manager new posts are getting created but as being moderated. Thoughts before I start digging through it?

Thanks for this mod.
Today my forum had many spammer registrations. As soon as I installed this mod I got immediate positive results.

I installed v1.2.8 but in cp it still shows as v1.2.7 I have even removed
the xml and imported again....

GlowHost.com 06 Jan 2011 02:05

Yes, as its been mentioned several times before, the version number on the XML file was not edited when we made the last release.

You can edit the version number on your own in the XML file if it bothers you, or in the product manager but we didn't want to upload a new zip file because it would email notify everyone subscribed to this thread or who has marked it as installed that anew version was available, because the only thing different would be us writing 1.2.8 in the version information. Kind of a waste of everyone's time.

You can see there are filesize differences in the 1.2.7 zip and the 1.2.8 zip which is a clue that you are actually running a different version than 1.2.7

wow, I installed this just about 2 days ago and it's logged 324 entries so far. I had no clue that much crap was trying to log on to my site. That's over 150 a day, while my previous spam counter measures stopped all except about 10 a day, those 10 were really starting to cause issues. So again, thanks for this very cool mod.

But I do have 1 question, I haven't looked into it real hard yet but every since I installed this mod and one other spam mod that creates a question during registration. My own bot which posts a few GSS feeds to my site now needs to be moderated to be approved and it wasn't like that before. Again, I haven't looked into it real hard yet but if somebody has a simple answer, I would appreciate it.

WOW, in the last 4 minutes it blocked 8 Spammer Bots etc.... This thing works Magics!

I found a small innocent bug this code in /admincp/glowhostspamomatic.php

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

should be

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

$stylevar['right'] is deprecated in vb 4
great hack already stopped six spammers :up:

After about three hours I'm very pleased. Here's my first impressions:
  1. I require user names; For me a lot of the robots don't submit one. If SOM knew this it would be less trips to SFS.
  2. Log entries should use phases; In my case I'd be reducing the verbiage greatly (i.e. "No Username Submitted" would become "None" and "Spammer Found and rejected." would become "rejected")
  3. I would love the option to have a logfile. That'd give the ability to use Fail2Ban to close the firewall to the robot for a time if they're persistent.

Thanks for the good work!

Thank you for this :)

I was going out of my mind continually banning IP's but this has quickly solved all my problems.
