All of it? The reason I say that is because I followed the post instructions. My questions if.. since I did those two things in the instructions. The issue is WHAT do I do next, after I've done what I did.

I see request after request after request of a whitelist option. Any news on that front? No one has a solution. I have to stop using the plugin (even though it's AWESOME) because I'm getting far to many normal people that can't register due to being listed as spammers, and they aren't.

I found that disabling the username check but keeping the IP and email check enabled has fixed the issue of banning genuine users while keeping all the spammers and bots at bay. Have you tried this setting yet?

I had not, so right now I just changed it too IP and Email check only. Lets see how that works.

I have this installed, and it was working well. Lately I have been getting hammered every day with tons of spammer accounts. Is there an update for this? Will there be soon? Is there another option that will work???

I think I figured it out. Somehow the option of what to do when a spammer is detected got changed to allow them to register, not block registration.

Yes, the title should be hyperlinked and nothing should display under it when first installed. Depending on how you set your admin settings depends on what will eventually show there. Check under statistics and logs for "GlowHost - Spam-O-Matic Logs" to see if it is running.

Not until it actually blocks spammers, until then it will be blank. If you have a slow site it could be blank for awhile.

Is there any way to report a spammer to StopForumSpam if they never post? Just recently spammers have been registering by the dozens (per day) but they don't post. They were after the blog feature but I have the blog spam under control, I just want to report them.

Thanks.

You can use this plugin and this code change.

Works for me.
