Well I'm not worried about spammers but I did have to de-activate this mod. Everything seemed to work well after installing it but this morning I discovered that I could not make a post on the board. When clicking 'submit post' I received a popup asking me if I wanted to leave the page and when I clicked yes, it brought me to an error page. I had the same error page when clicking on Preview Post.

After I de-activated it, everything went back to normal. Unfortunately I didn't take a screen shot of the error page or copy the error down. For now, it will stay de-activated and I'll worry about it at a later date.

installed ... took my forum down from 1000+ spammers/day to a few if any at all.


Fantastic mod, thanks

Hey,

wenn ich die "vblang-glowhostspamomatic-210_de.xml" also die deutsche Sprachdatei hochladen will kommt der Fehler von vB "Datei nicht gültig"
Was kann ich machen damit das Add.on in deutsch angezeigt wird ??
Grüße
Andreas

Spam-O-Matic not stopping IP listed at Stop Forum Spam

My understanding is that Spam-O-Matic uses the Stop Forum Spam database to filter out known spammers. However, while it seems to catch many bad IP addresses listed at Stop Forum Spam, many are still getting past Spam-O-Matic. Why is that the case, and is there anything to be done about it?

After reading your guide and installing a couple of other mods, I've gone from having a load of spammers still getting through to none. I've uninstalled this mod now. Great advise thanks :)

Can someone help me with it? I am receiving tons of very annoying spam where there is only email, not links

Barcham 14 Mar 2014 16:09

If the spammers are registering on your board, the best option is to block them from registering in the first place. The best way to do that is to install the tools mentioned in the post Ozzy47 linked to. I am currently blocking well over 25 per day using these mods and not one has gotten through to register since they were installed.

All of the sudden everyone is getting through even though their IP IS listed on stopforumspam. Any idea why? The logs show they "Passed StopForumSpam checks." does anyone know what the log would show it was unable to connect to stopforumspam?
