version 2.1.0 not working with vB 4.2.0 PL3
by MNbiker
02 Feb 2013 01:22

Unfortunately, version 2.1.0 of Spam-O-matic doesn't appear to work with version 4.2.0 PL3 of vB. I even tried to completely delete the mod and do a fresh re-install, but the app still doesn't work from the admin control panel or from within the forum. It also blocked new user registrations. I'm pretty bummed, as I've come to rely on Spam-O-Matic hte past couple years. Any ETA on a version that works properly with 4.2.0 PL3?

Well, it worked perfectly for two years through multiple upgrades to both SOM and vB. However, the upgrade to vB 4.2.0 PL3 killed it. I've tried everything I can think of, including a complete uninstall (including deleting the files uninstall doesn't remove). I tried disabling the built-in vB Spam Management, and even tried disabling other unrelated mods, to no avail. Not sure what else to try...

Then it is time to get someone in to look at it as something you did is wrong as it works well with 4.2.0 PL3

After deleting user via Admin CP...

Quote:

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in [path]/admincp/glowhostspamomatic.php on line 108

Spam-O-Matic has performed the following actions:
Selected user was removed
User details were submitted to StopForumSpam
User details were submitted to Akismet
Back to User Search
Any idea what the warning means?

ForceHSS 02 Feb 2013 16:01

did you delete user first then delete the posts? as the error in question is this foreach ($postids as $post_id)

This is a brilliant mod and really stopping spammers registering on my website.

I am suddenly having an issue with posts being put into moderation before appearing and thus requiring approval, this includes admin posts?? I am not sure if it has anything to do with this mod as I don't require my members posts to be moderated before they post.

Any advice or help appreciated

Thank You! I'm loving this addition, as the reason I never have time to develop my site is due to spending most of my time IP banning spammer attempts. Much appreciation for the needed break!

That's right, all we did was add a Romanian language pack by Teascu Dorin.

When we attached the new file, the system emailed everyone about a new version. There is no need to update anything unless you want the Romanian language pack.

mykkal 11 Feb 2013 01:08

Hello Glowhost, I have an issue I think you can fix. The script works great for stopping spam registrations however moderation doesn't work so good.

I have an RSS Feed which is pulled in under the username MMT_CASTINGS on my forum. The feed pulls model & actor gigs from craigslist. The only issue is sometimes people post escort ads and other 'bad' things on craigslist which eventually get pulled into my forum.

The plugin sometimes recognizes my banned words and moderates the posts. This is what I want it to do. But many times it does not identify the banned keywords and allows the post to be made.

Should this not happen everytime? Even if a user is approved and registered I want certain keywords to trigger moderation. Excluding administrators and moderators of course.

Any ideas?

firstimecaller 11 Feb 2013 18:53

https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/show...stration-fails

same happened for me after installing this. Any ideas? thanks.

edit: I checked all my uploaded files and traced this back to an FTP error. I had a corrupted file.

Yes, it should happen every time. I can only fix it if you can show me how it happens or explain it in exact detail so it can be duplicated on this end. If it is a big problem for you then setup a test case that we can verify on this end and we will look into it.

MattGarner 11 Feb 2013 22:21

Isn't there a query around you can do that will allow a specific username or IP to register? It's a false hit and I do not wish to disable the product altogether. I used it before but I've lost it since :(

GlowHost.com 11 Feb 2013 22:32

Most people disable the username check. Why not add the user in the vBulletin admincp?

Users > Add new user.

ForceHSS 11 Feb 2013 23:00

removing then reinstalling then disable the user name check works

pwcxtreme 12 Feb 2013 17:59

Thanks Glowhost for an awesome spam filter! Its been running for 5 days now and i already have 5138 denied in that short time and i have seen over 600 online at 1 time (only 40 members, forum is 4 weeks old). Is this normal?

Diachron 13 Feb 2013 01:43

This mod is a life saver, thank you. I was starting to despair that I'd never keep spammers at bay

My only real comment is a plea to vB to include something similar in stock vB 5.x. It just seems to me that if the current state of affairs is such that an administrator cannot hope to keep a forum free of debilitating spam without a solution of this nature, then those solutions must be baked into the products themselves.

That said, thank you again for developing this excellent mod.

mykkal 13 Feb 2013 02:33

Now that is awesome.

Installed upgrade (was on 2.0.1) on 4.2.0 PL3, no issues.

Thanks for keeping this GREAT mod going. It saves us all a TON of work each day!

danycutu1 17 Feb 2013 16:32

Thanks for this mod. I've installed it and i'm testing it. One question though. Is it possible to check the already created users with your system?

weave 18 Feb 2013 00:05

Just went to remove the first users from the "user" on the admin CP and I too am getting "Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in [path]/admincp/glowhostspamomatic.php on line 108"

Any ideas yet? Not sure I read the "fix" on here.

Yes, it is there

Had another user this AM, same thing. I used the ADMINCP option to ban this user also.

I have now set it to "remove" the user but I cannot test until I get another spammer signed up.

It seems that everything is working as it should from a function standpoint, it is just tossing this error.

You filled it in both places for the akismet key

danycutu1 19 Feb 2013 21:57

Back with the second post and still waiting for your help. I am using 4.2 vbulletin and i can't see any easy cleanup option anywhere. my administrators have full permisions under administrator permissions tab, including me. i have the akismet key set, still, i'm not able to check the already created users to see if they are spammers (and they are, like 400 of them). please give some more details of how should i moderate the already created users...

LE: i also, in my usergroups under edit usergroups i don't have any option like Filter posts with Akismet as it is mentioned in the installation intructions

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).

As far as I know there is no way to check your already registered members to see if they are spammers are not. This mod checks to see if they are in the SFS database before allowing them to complete their registration.
You can manually check their IP and email address here but it's time consuming.

danycutu1 20 Feb 2013 03:20

what about the easy cleanup option and the filter posts with akismet. What's wrong with those?

If it's a spammer post then remove it using moderation tools in the thread or under search for users in the admincp

Bluemax712 23 Feb 2013 00:53

Finally upgraded from 1.27 version to latest 2.1

Never realized how much extra traffic to the SFS servers the old version caused till now.
It was logging about 10 users per hour but now down to about 10 per day
(I guess due as mentioned to the vB built-in Human Verification now occurring first before this)

Combined this with Spambot Stopper - which I imagine kicks in before this to stop the bots from registering.

Mate I have looked at the settings, I've been running this mod for 2 years. You make no sense in what you're saying. You are saying there is a 3rd setting in the mod and I say I don't see it and don't recall it either.

In the admincp/options/settings group/Glowhost - Spam-O-Matic there are two (2) places for a key. One you get from Akismet [link] the other from StopForumSpam [link]. The two are different and the only two places you can input a key [other than Affiliate System: Affiliate ID and we are not talking about that].

So tell me, where do you input the Akismet key a second time? There is only one place that I know of.

Well mate you could have said spam management from the beginning and instead of all this hashing back and forth. BUT I still find no documentation for this mod that tells you to goto spam management and enter your Akismet API Key.

Bluemax712 26 Feb 2013 02:26

So as far as these two options:

1) vB Options - Spam Management
Anti-Spam Service
--Disabled
--Akismet
--Typepad Antispam Beta

2) Options - GlowHost Spam-O-Matic
- Askimet:Enabled

Would it make sense to set the first one to Typepad Antispam Beta
That way Askimet won't be scanning the message twice and will have 2 different scans?

john2k 28 Feb 2013 04:19

Possible Bug:

I have Auto-Moderation: Post Action set to Moderate Post. The SOM log shows that a spammy post was detected and set to moderated, however there are not posts or threads waiting to be moderated.

Looks like SOM ignored my Auto-Moderation: Post Action setting and deleted the post anyway.

You would be best to ask your other mods first also check admin stats you will see it when you login to admin panel if you have it turned on also check mod logs

They are still issuing blacklisted IP's and usernames, so you can manually add those, best to put them in your IP deny manager via cpanel, that way they get nowhere hear the registration page.
I'm a newbie but I think you can also put the usernames in the block list in the ACP

I use everything I can, but this MOD has really helped, I was plagued this morning, but not a single spammer has got through in over three hours, so it must be working

SOM reports "5 Spammy Posts Automatically Moderated" on my forums front page.... however, when I look in the moderation queue there is nothing.

Any idea what might be causing the auto moderated posts to not be placed in the moderation queue?

You might have it set to automatically delete them in which case it wouldn't be in the moderation queue.

I have the "Auto-Moderation: Post Action" set to 'Moderate Post'

Not sure what else might be interfering in it.

Thanks, mine was set to the "beta" setting. I have changed it and added my key.

Will let you know the next time I ban a user.

You have not uploaded the files

tacklebox joe 06 Mar 2013 14:19

i uploaded them to my FTP in the forum folder of the root directory. should i have done something different? i also uploaded the proper xml file in my admincp

ForceHSS 06 Mar 2013 14:41

Did you first remove them from the upload folder or did you also upload the upload folder with all the files in it

tacklebox joe 06 Mar 2013 14:43

uploaded the entire "upload" folder

ForceHSS 06 Mar 2013 14:55

Try not to upload the upload folder only what is inside so many make that mistake

tacklebox joe 06 Mar 2013 15:34

so I removed the upload folder from root directory and uninstalled it from my admincp. Now do I just upload the admincp and includes folders into the root directory or the forum folder under my root folder? thx for the help man!

tacklebox joe 06 Mar 2013 16:28

i think i may have figured it out..........we shall see...thx again!

tacklebox joe 06 Mar 2013 16:43

Nope NO GOOD....UGH!!! LOL:mad::D

ForceHSS 06 Mar 2013 16:57

Just about to go to bed. When you open the upload folder you will see more folders inside them folders are files. Now as I am doing this on the iPad can't look at the files but all you need to do is take the files and place them inside the same name folders in your FTP then install the XML. If you are still having problems I will help you when I get up

tacklebox joe 06 Mar 2013 22:36

thanks man! i really appreciate it. i did take the glowhost admincp folder and put it into the forums admincp folder and the glowhost includes folder into the forums includes folder then uploaded the product-glowhost xml file into my vb admincp BUT still came across same issue. what I am doing wrong?

tacklebox joe 06 Mar 2013 22:50

thanks man! i did take the glowhost admincp folder and uploaded it to the forums admincp folder and took the glowhost includes folder and uploaded it to the fourm includes folder and uploaded the product-glowhost xml file into the product manager BUT still same issue. what am i doing wrong? thanks, Joe

tacklebox joe 06 Mar 2013 23:50

i just took the individual php files from the glowhost admincp and includes folders and uploaded them into the corresponding folder names in my root directory. think I did it right this time??? Seems no issues yet but not sure.

Don't place admincp inside admincp. You place the contents of admincp inside the folder. If you want the content inside you may drop the one at a time, but the best method is to change the name of your upload folder to the name of your forum folder, and drop all contents to the *root* (one level higher in the tree).

Quick and easy to install. Just what we need, thank you.

Just for information: Stop Forum Spam have currently disabled their API key due abuse problems so you can't send them data at the moment.
