It has been about a month since I installed Spam-O-Matic and it is keeping out all the undesirables. Before there were several daily attacks. I post this note to say this software installed in about ten minutes, the instructions were accurate, and it does exactly as promised. To say I can suggest no improvements is my highest compliment. Congratulations on outstanding work.:)

just installed -- did a test registration and I have not received my confirmation email.

Nothing -- what is wrong?

did do something wrong in the settings? ---

Never mind -- it just came through -- took a while

I have typad in the vbulletin built in spam management system and akismet on spam-o-matic.

Should I switch the built in Spam mgmt. system to Akismet as well or leave as is?

Disabling the IP check is the solution for now but this is not ideal.

Is there a way of adding a whitelist unique to our own boards or have GlowHost developers considered an update in this regard?
That way we could add our own whitelist of IP's/networks to minimize false positives from our boards perspective.

If this has been discussed in more detail elsewhere please pass me a link.

Bump...

works like a charm!!!!!!!

question on how many URLS users are allowed to post -- default is zero. Is there a recommended number or should it be left at default (zero)?

Does that go away and they can post urls after they have "x" number of posts?

does it affect signatures?

Thanks

This spammer has tried to register on my forum at least 200 times in the past month and keeps getting blocked by Spam - o - matic.

I am just blown away that this spammer is that persistent.

Also trying to register under username pipsiez

It's a bot so it doesn't (some do) learn from not being able to register.

I am getting a 404 error...

when I ban a spammer using spam-o-matic. I can ban the person, click confirm, and then if it gives me a list of users with the same IP, I get the 404 error when I click on those user's names to ban them manually too.

From what I can see, it puts the path as user.php?do=edit&u=xxxx rather than myadmincp/user.php?do=edit&u=xxxx

My admincp folder is renamed for security reasons.... I suppose it needs to know if it's an admin or mod and put in the correct folder name based on their settings...

Also, when we ban people using Spam-o-Matic, the profile retains the website address and the signature. As these things stay on the profile page, they really need to be removed when the spammer is banned/submitted, otherwise the spammer wins by gaining a link to their website on the profile page.

Otherwise, this is an absolutely fantastic mod. :) Thanks! :D
