All you have to do is reinstall or just add the missing file from Spam-o-matic.

If it does not see the file and spam-o-matic is installed (even partially) - it will generate that error.

It was driving me nuts until I figured it out

Hi LVC not sure if you were replying to my post but I am sure I uploaded everything to the root and I am still unable to post. Are there any known conflicts with other mods or do I need to CHMOD 777 the directories?

MAdotcom 08 Aug 2011 01:13

I digress. I am sorry I was not making sure the files were in the correct directories. The product is allowing me to post now.

sc123 08 Aug 2011 02:52

what did you do? im unable to post.. i have vb 4.1.5

MAdotcom 08 Aug 2011 03:53

When you upload the files via FTP you need to make sure they are put in the correct directories. Not trying to be a ++++ so don't think I am talking down to you by showing you an example but I didn't even think about it so here's an example for this specific product (hope it helps)

ex: the file 'upload' has 2 files in it (admin & includes) in the admin file glowhostspamomatic.php exists and that php file must be placed in your forums admin directory, not in the root. Same with all files excluding the product-glowhostspamomatic.xml file which needs to be uploaded in your forums admincp.

Long story short, make sure the file you FTP goes to the correct directory not in the forum root.

Hope that helps

Should I uninstall vbStopForumSpam mod before install this one?

Thank you very much!

sc123 10 Aug 2011 11:57

i just upgraded to vb 4.1.5 and i just re uploaded the files and it worked.

Why dont you give us the option to ban or submit spammers when we click edit and it takes us to ACP? I am getting a shitload of spammers signing up to post visitor messages!

Its coming with version 2.5 as stated in the first post.

The correct question would be, when will be seeing 2.5 come out...?

LVC 12 Aug 2011 13:30

hope 2.5 has moderation alerts.

would love to receive an email alert when a post is placed in auto moderation.

If there is a way to do that now -- please share.

iamspookysdaddy 13 Aug 2011 12:08

Hi,

Thanks for the mod! I am missing the Spam-O-Matic logs link under Statistics and Logs? I am running Vbulletin 4.1.5? Any suggestions? I installed last nigt and see to Spammers Denied Registration on Forum Home section but cannot find section for logs?

Yes, But I remember that function / feature present in the previous 1.x version, I was able to ban, and submit them to akismat,. As soon as I upgraded" to the new version. it went away.

Also this, Or maybe a banner on top of the forums visible only to admins or mods that says "SOME POSTS NEED MODERATION". This should be an option to eithr be notified this way or via PM

This mod needs a lot of functions, as when its banning users, make it so that it removed everything(eg. visitor messages etc. so no spam links are left on out forums. Add MORE options about banning and removing spam posts in one click. Also alerts is a big yes yes :D//


2.5 soon please :o

spamgirl 15 Aug 2011 02:49

4.2. Get API key for Akismet and enter it in settings. After this edit your usergroups and you will see the option to "Filter posts with Akismet". Only check groups with untrusted users (i.e. Unregistered / Not Logged In, Registered Users).

--

I added the Akismet key but I don't see this option in any of my user groups. Where should I be looking?

empservices 16 Aug 2011 11:07

Hi,

I'd like to install this mod but I have 2 questions beforehand for which I didn't find answers here.

1) Can I whitelist a country, this is the opposite to what most people seem to want to do. My forum is designed mainly for a specific country while all others are welcome. I therefore want to whitelist the country ( I can handle occasional spam manually) and do normal moderationrules for the rest of the world.

2) Can I Auto moderate posts with lings from users in a specific usergroup. Also some of them don't make a real link just put in a URL (it's unclickable but stillo messy).

Thanks

After installing this mod I get error on the forum home page link.

Database error in vBulletin 4.1.5:

I had to also change the product-glowhostspamomatic.xml TYPE=MyISAM to ENGINE=MyISAM for the install to work as it doesn't seem to like having type there since the latest mysql update but not sure if that is anyway related to the problem mentioned above.

John Lester 21 Aug 2011 00:32

Quick question, in the list of bad words can we enter phrases? IE "watch live" "live nude" etc etc.

This mod rocks btw :cool:

I loaded it successfully and it is showing up under products but I am not seeing the option under AdminCP -> Settings -> Options ->GlowHost - Spam-O-Matic

I am using 4.02 has anyone else had this type of problem, I also do not see Facebook when I expand and collapse the options. Today I added another module and I could see it. Any help would be appreciated.

vantastic 27 Aug 2011 02:25

Thank you for this mod. I'm looking forward to seeing the results on these new 'smart-bots' that keep hitting my forum.

The Rocketeer 27 Aug 2011 15:27

in the version 1 of this mod, before I upgraded to version 2. there I remember being a option at the very bottom when editing a user profile in the Admin CP., I could just click and check two boxes and ban the user and submit him to stop forum spam at the same time, it saved a lot of time, now I just delete the users.

Was this function removed? Why?

In the next version in addition to this function please also give us the option to have all the offending users Visitor messages removed .

There are no country options at this time. I am not following your second question. Please elaborate.

it was removed because there were bugs with vb4 and we wanted to get a working version released.

mjfan227 28 Aug 2011 02:04

It's working great 4.1.5, thanks.

The Rocketeer 28 Aug 2011 05:29

Thanks @GlowHost.com
Could you give us some update / information if a new version to address these errors are in the works and maybe a ETA on when the new version of this mod is due? Thanks

GlowHost.com 28 Aug 2011 19:22

What errors are you specifically speaking of? This whole thread is about errors, and all of them since the last version are related to operator error.

To my knowledge if it is installed per the directions it works fine on all vb4 versions released to date. The only known issue is Windows users have some code that needs to be changed for MySQL to work.

A new version will be soon, it's in the queue for when we don't have major other projects to work on at our primary business which is web hosting. 2 weeks maybe?? If nothing else critical comes up at work.

If someone want's to make a reasonable donation to speed the process up, then we can discuss it but at this time it is coming as fast as we can which is whenever we have free time to put our programmers onto this.

Still having problems

I have upgraded to 4.1.5 Patch Level 1 - I am now seeing Facebook but I am not seeing GlowHost. I must of installed the files wrong it is showing up under my plugins and I loaded both folders admincp and includes to the main directory of the forum so the folders are now there. Should I have copy what is in the folders ie. includes and paste it into the existing includes folder rather than the folder?

Sorry in advance for some stupid questions.

Force, sorry to be thick but just to be sure. In the upload file there are two folders: includes and admincp I copied the contents of these files and pasted them into the existing folders that I have already on my system. If that is what you are suppose to do the program is still not showing up. "you also can you show a screenshot from the options of the bottom of the program to see what you have put in the boxes" I am not sure what you meant by that comment.

Any help from you or other for a noob would be very much appreciate. The xml file by the way installed fine.

ForceHSS 30 Aug 2011 02:06

if you need 1 to 1 help pm me
you have 3 files inside the upload folder inside the includes folder you will see the xml folder did you upload the file inside that folder as well
also make sure you have set yourself super admin from inside the config

upload\admincp\glowhostspamomatic
upload\includes\functions_ghsom
upload\includes\xml\cpnav_glowhostspamomatic

The first step is to look at the logs and see why your legitimate users are being blocked. You might consider turning off username and IP verification and focus only on known spammer email addresses.

g00gl3r 05 Sep 2011 17:18

Is there a way to disallow moderators from using the thread removal tool?

My mods keep erasing genuine members with it by accident and it's clearing some decent old threads that we have.

I'm trying to find configuration permissions to stop this but can't. It appears all admins, mods and supermods just get permissions full stop?

Perhaps I'm missing something?

Are you a new user with this MOD?

If yes and your board hasn't detected anything yet, it will be blank. Once it does it's magic, you will see it listed on your Home Page.

Also, under Settings / Options / GlowHost - Spam-O-Matic

Anyone know if there is an easy way to BOLD the "Moderated" prefix on threads that are put into the moderation que? This way i can see the threads that need moderation a little easier on the forum instead of going into the admincp.

Hi

I was wondering of someone could help me.......

I only have ONE plugin installed on a fresh install of a forum running 4.1.x and after I installed glow host, I get the following error message when I try to update or change settings on a user group. I.e change admin's avatar size etc. When I hit save, I get this message:

( BTW - I used the tools.php and try everything.....not sure its glowhost.....)

Please advise or help if you can :) That would be super awesome

Great mod. However, a few people I know who have filled in things correctly have been blocked from registering. Can't understand how or why but i've gone through the settings and can't work out what is going on.

Some use hotmail.co.uk e-mail addresses but aren't on any spam list. Would be strange if they were ;)

Hello, Thanks for this great mod.

However, Having really serious trouble on my board. Since last month 1000s of post everyday is being generated and even after submission that ip, I can not get rid of those ip address.

Specific ip from china 222.186.24.25 and dont know how that ip got registered more than 300 users and I can not delete it due to few other ip is doing same with me.

Today to get rid of that, I've choose small business license from Akismet and reported them about my current problem. They simply reported it like this

--------
Hi,
The key ******** is not talking to the akismet servers - I see zero reports.
You will need to contact the author of the vBulletin plugin as they created it and we do not support that code, sorry.
--------
but the same time, I am getting my statistics that user reported to stopforumspam / akismet.

What may be the issue? I am sure about I've inserted my key correctly. Can anyone tell me what is vBulletin Anti-spam key? found under setting > options > spam management .

Do help me, I've to keep my eyes on everytime to remove these @#[email protected]# spammers. I am ready to go any pro version if you are giving.

in the archive file that has been attached here you should find a .xml file called:

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

you should import this from you product manager in acp.


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

on the bottom of that page you should see a text link : [Add/Import Product] click on it and then select the file from you computer and press import.

on the bottom of that page you should see a text link : [Add/Import Product] click on it and then select the file from you computer and press import.

I knew i would get lost , are you saying i will find this file in my database ??

I'll have a look at the database and see what i can find

thanks !

sorry i just noticed you said import from computer ?? i was told i had to do it via ftp ?

Now i did actually try to import a file from computer earlier and got an error notice

bedtime soon so i'll try again tomorrow

cheers

goroddy 12 Sep 2011 13:14

i did find a file titled

cpnav_glowhostspamomatic.xml on my computer

but when i tried to import it , the notice was 'invalid file type'

now i am really confused becasue of limited knowledge and skills

i thought i was there for a second

on friday when i tried my first ftp somehow all the folders in the 'download folder' on my computer changed to word document display and i had to install 7zip to be to extract the files and drag them over to filezilla, cant help but think perhaps this has complicated matters somewhat

pity because i was on the way

owning_y0u 12 Sep 2011 15:58

Download the zip again and you will find a file in it that is called product-glowhostspamomatic.xml i know this for sure as i just did it ;-)

that file you need to upload, if you want some help send me a private message, and i will guide you, if like, i also can send a step by step how to if wanted, not that hard i think

goroddy 13 Sep 2011 02:02

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=248042

above is the link that i was given ........ i still cannot see the file you are refering to ??

cpnav_glowhostspamomatic.xml

after the download and extraction of the files to my computers there are two sub folders called 'admincp' and 'includes'

i think you are going blind:p
in the archive you have and upload folder and a xml file ;-) never the less I have added the correct XML file for you

goroddy 13 Sep 2011 08:12

if you are saying that the file highlighted has come from the folder 'upload' the download i have done a number of time does not have this ?

there are two subfolders/ admincp+includes/ when i open 'includes' there is a file called 'functions_ghsom.php' and another sub folder titled 'xml'

when i open the 'xml' file the only file there is called 'cpnav_glowhostspamomatic.xml

So i am not going blind but this does not fix my current dilemma ??

The download is just up the top of this page

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/attac...1&d=1297292660

sitting just above 'changelog.txt'

How can the current situation be happening , and the bummer is i am quite sure of how to upload the file ........ but i can't find it after the download

I'll download it again but if the file is not there .......it is not there and i have been wasting the last week of my time

thanks

owning_y0u 13 Sep 2011 08:19

just download the attachment i have added in my previous post, import that one as i told you in: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...postcount=1258

goroddy 13 Sep 2011 08:28

ok the situation was that when i extracted the files from the zip folder the required file does not extract , i have since opened the zip and discovered ther required file is actually there and that for reasons unknown does not extract ??

Long story short once i found it i moved it the downloads folder on my computer where i could access it for the 'import'

So yes i have installed and can see it on the products list in my vbulletin admin !!

............Yippppeeeeeee

What's next ??

atacann1977 13 Sep 2011 10:08

atacann1977 14 Sep 2011 15:37

06fg2 17 Sep 2011 17:38

I'm getting this whenever I make a new post:


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

Oh and forum is currently 4.0.2

goroddy 18 Sep 2011 02:01

like me you have to disable this plugin until someone here tells us how to rectify the problem ??

It's quite annoying to think of what i went through to install this only to have the same message as above

There is a good chance it may be an easy fix but when you are just starting out many things so escalate into 'extremely hard'

So we need some help here ........please

K!nG 18 Sep 2011 06:37

Something i was looking for. Just installed it on 4.1.5 and hopefully it will work.

Thanks

Looks like you have missed uploading this file into includes, see this post

goroddy 18 Sep 2011 11:43

Run upgrade ?

dustoff99 18 Sep 2011 13:37

Finally upgraded to 4.1.6 (was 4.1.2) and it was successful. Still awaiting v 2.5 for this MOD =]

Ha. I'm stupid..I uploaded the 'includes' folder in the 'uploads' folder.

Thanks! All works fine now!

Great plugin! The only issue is that it causes the registration process to break when the StopForumSpam API goes down. Would it be possible for you to wrap the API checks in conditionals and allow the registration to proceed when it's unavailable?

There is a setting for that. See "StopForumSpam: Query Connection Errors "

davide101 19 Sep 2011 23:01

In that case, I'd like to report this as a bug. We have QueryConnection Errors set to "Allow Registration". When the API last went down (timing out due to overloading), the registration was not allowed through.

GlowHost.com 19 Sep 2011 23:22

You can check your log and see what it says next to the user who had the problem. I haven't heard about this problem on any other boards yet and my logs show them passing when it times out.

venom2124 20 Sep 2011 04:50

Disregard figured out my problem

davide101 20 Sep 2011 19:08

I went back to our logs from the last outage. We had 100+ users rejected during the downtime with the same message:


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

If this is an uncommon issue (I've only seen one downtime since I started using it), then I'll live with it. A really nice safety feature would be an email notification when the API stops responding.

handsome_Rob 20 Sep 2011 21:30

this product is awesome, you cant believe how many spammers have been denied access to our site because of this!

if i find whoever made this, I'm going to hug them like ashton kutcher! LOL :D

cschmiedl 20 Sep 2011 23:35

best vb plugin ever! thanks guys!

goroddy 21 Sep 2011 01:45

i gotta ask why that again i have installed this pugin to a brand new 4.1.6 vbulletin instantly i had troubles ??

Is the download link flawed ............ am i doing something wrong twice ??

Once this plugin is in the site it becomes unusable ?

uploading product-spamomatic.xml as advised on stopforumspam/com

Like last time i had to disable it to use the forum ??

the concept may be great but all i have it problems so far

what's up with all that i wonder

you must be installing the files in the wrong place or missing some in the upload

goroddy 21 Sep 2011 11:11

well the download is on this page and i have been told to upload the 'product_spamomatic.xml at the forum admin in my cms / plugin + Products / add import or product/ then in the browse section and ending by uploading the file below

product-glowhostspamomatic.xml

fldewey 22 Sep 2011 15:22

Installed and working, but I don't have the log option in my admin panel. I have the Spam-O-Matic in my settings >>options but I don't see the log in the Statistics and Logs.

I've searched this thread and I don't see anyone else with this issue. Can something help me find what I've done wrong?

The install seems pretty straight forward but I've obviously missed something.

goroddy 23 Sep 2011 02:04

I re-installed mine and this time i clicked the update option (not that it was required) surprisingly it worked this time

also do a human verification question like:

Please write the word w-e-b-s-i-t-e without the spaces to join this website

That really seemed to work

Bob Meta 24 Sep 2011 01:51

I apologize if this has been asked before, but I really want to get this working! After installing the mod, every time myself or a user tries to post, the following error message appears:

"This page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave - data you have entered may not be saved. (leave page / stay on page)"

Any idea why this may be?

goroddy 24 Sep 2011 02:09

yes i get that sometimes as well, i actually think more of vbulletin cliche than spamomatic, as i was getting this before i had anything to do with spamomatic

goroddy 24 Sep 2011 05:49

Hi All,

I just installed this great looking mod on our forum three days ago as we have started to have the odd spammer show up.

A friend tried to register last night and she was denied registration.

"Spam-O-Matic Tagged username - Sarah - Spammer Found and rejected."

I have checked the stopforumspam database and there are loads of entry's for the name Sarah.

I know I can turn off the username check but I think it's a good idea. Am I doing something wrong? Surly a user with the name Sarah should be able to register?

We are on the latest 4.1.6 VB

Thanks for any assistance :up:

This mod has no control over whats in the SFS database, if the username is in it's DB I believe you can petition to have it removed.
Really though, as many users suggest in the last few pages of posts, you should turn off username recognition, as email addresses and other options can prevent the spammers just as well.
