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.

Have an unused one if you need it

So you place the contents of the uploads>admincp folder into yoursite/admincpfolder or everything contained in the uploads folder into your root directory?

Sorry I am a little fuzzy on the instructions and was getting the same error as the gentlemen earlier.

tacklebox joe 07 Mar 2013 16:12

go to your FTP take the files from the glowhost admincp folder and drag the files that are in glowhost admincp folder into the folder named admincp in your root directory. take the files from the glowhost includes folder and drag the files that are in the glowhost includes folder and drag them into the folder named includes in your root directory. then go to you Admincp Panel of vBullentin. go to Plugins & Products > Manage Products > Add/Import Product......download the xml file named product-glowhost.xml which can be found on your hard drive which you received when you downloaded and unzipped this mod

I'm after updating the plugin and now lots of my newer members are -
unable to post
unable to create threads
unable to make accounts

Is there anything I should be aware of?

The error they see is a blank white screen.

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

I Have the same thing (same on both my forums)

tpearl5 10 Mar 2013 13:22

I must reiterate that it is a MAJOR OVERSIGHT that this mod circumvents the moderator permissions to permanently delete ALL threads/posts by a user.

There was a case on my forum where a new mod accidentally removed all of a users posts and I couldn't get them back!

Let me try to explain it a little better.

- GlowHost_-_Spam-O-Matic_v2.1.0_VB4
+ upload
+ glowhostspamomatic_Deutsch_Sie_1.0.1.xml
+ readme


The upload folder contains the contents that need to go into the forum. The contents contained are and admincp folder and an includes folder. You can do one of two things, but the easiest thing to do is to right click the uploads folder and change it to the name of your forums folder. This folder name can be different for everyone, because most do not name their forum "Forums". Example

- This is the Root Folder for your forums probably named the name of your URL
+ This could be a folder for another section of your forum such as Joomla, etc.
+ Forums "This could be named differently" As I said not everyone uses "Forums"

Let's say that your forum is about cars, then you might name your forum directory cars. That's all up to the individual when they install the forum. Now what you do is change the name of the "upload folder" to cars, but if your forum is "Forums" then you would change the name to forums. Now when you FTP you would drop the upload folder that you changed the name of to the ROOT which is one level up from the cars or forums folder. By doing that the admincp folder and includes folder of S-O-M will drop the contents of each folder in the admincp folder and includes folder within the forum folder. NOTE: this will only work if you are one listing higher in the directory tree.


The other two folders are uploaded in the products & plugins area of vB. Obviously not the Duetsch unless you need that laguage.


English version of XML file that you will most likely use.

I hope that explanation made it a little more clear. You could follow the long path by uploading the contents from the admincp folder into the admincp folder and so on, but that is an explanation for people that are not familiar with directory and directory structure. Use that routine if you do not understand the information I just provided.

I would not want a moderator having that kind of permission. Not everyone can you trust with that kind of authority.

Kevlar 12 Mar 2013 21:18

Installed it and it works great... kinda. I disabled the spam-o-matic easy clean up feature because it's server intensive and times out on my forum right now. However, I disabled the spam-o-matic easy clean up feature, but the option still shows up in my inline mod actions box

http://i.minus.com/jbbtQOuVlD42Ip.jpg

What does it do? Does it do anything even though the system is disabled?

Merlinii 15 Mar 2013 11:10

I' getting a error message when I use the
Users > Search for users > List New Registrations > UserID > Quick User Links > Spam-O-Matic - Remove and ban user

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

Is this supposed to work like this?
How can I correct this error message?

Problem:
I always received the error message above when I used the Remove and Ban user.
Manage Products > Add/Import Product always failed when upgrading to the newer version.

Solution:
I checked for any "old" files left from Version 1 and deleted them.
I copied the existing Akismet API Key & StopForumSpam API Key to notepad
I uninstalled the mod from Plug-Ins and Products > Manage Products
I manually deleted each of the files from each of the folders on the server.
I manually uploaded the file ./includes/xml/product-glowhostspamomatic.xml
I manually uploaded each file into the appropriate server folder
I used AdminCP for Plug-in products > Manage products > Add/Import
I used the uploaded file path > ./includes/xml/product-glowhostspamomatic.xml

Conclusion:
This time (for the first time) the Spam-O-Matic imported correctly with no errors.
I pasted the API keys back into the Settings > Options > GlowHost - Spam-O-Matic
Modified any options in Options > GlowHost - Spam-O-Matic and saved with no issues.
GlowHost - Spam-O-Matic appears to be working correctly now with no errors or issues.

hello

This mod had been fantastic and worked perfectly for months now preventing tons of potential spammers. All of a sudden spammers are managing to register and I am getting the message below in the logs, any ideas please.

Unable to connect to StopForumSpam.com. This is probably due to some temporary problems on their website: Unable to check. User passed to vBulletin registration system per your settings at 'StopForumSpam:

Considering how you are limited to 20,000 queries per-day with StopForumSpam, maybe you just ran out of queries, and then the mod itself kicked in to deal with the overflow.

Mark4865 18 Mar 2013 07:07

Thanks for advice VB Results appreciate it. My forums is not that busy so not the case.

I am desperate for help here, your spamming mod the I am running in conjunction with this one is really helping but I really need this working again urgently.

If you are on a shared host with a shared IP, others could be using StopForumSpam so it is possible. I'm able to query their database just fine;

Mark4865 18 Mar 2013 12:47

Is there anything I can check my end in my own VB to see why it suddenly cant connect to stop forum spam website

rhody401 18 Mar 2013 16:03

Wasn't there a thread way back up there about changing the default URL that it uses to check stopforumspam's database? I remember editing my code, per the instructions, to change where it communicates.

I assume this was already done for us in the current version. Are you running the current version?

Just a possible theory as to why you are having this issue.

Best regards
Rhody

Mark4865 18 Mar 2013 16:52

Hello rhody401

thanks for info and suggestion. I am running current version and it was working perfectly up until 2 days ago so not sure what happened

Mark4865 19 Mar 2013 07:16

Help please guys

What would suddenly cause this mod to be unable to connect to the stopforumspam website to check potential spammers any ideas PLEASE

Bluemax712 19 Mar 2013 07:23

I would seriously try Spambot Stopper if you haven't already.

Pretty sure it takes affect before Spam-O-Matic kicks in and will atleast block all the automated bots.

Though currently I'm having issues with Spambot Stopper posting to a thread but that's an option that can be disabled
(probably just an issue with my own forum )

thanks for suggestion I am running the "You and Spam" mod which is brilliant and help catch most of the spammers but I was running both and it was great.

Suddenly this mod is unable to connection the the Stop forum Spam server and I have no idea why.

My website hosting company says they have made no changes on their side but I am not sure about this.

what would cause this issue of connection problems

There are some changes in the XML not sure if they are in the one above if not there is a fix a few pages back not sure how many good bit I think

Bluemax712 19 Mar 2013 07:41

yea Spambot Stopper and You and Spam (renamed again? :) )
both seem to do the same thing.

Not sure why it can't contact - my Glowhost logs show it's still connecting.

Can you ping their servers?

Mark4865 19 Mar 2013 12:50

Thanks ForceHSS

I read back about 20 pages and found mention of same problem but no mentioned of how they fixed it. I sent a PM to the person who had the problem and hopefully they will confirm how they resolved it.

Thanks but I dont know where to find functions_ghsom.php and the single post does not tell me this hence the dumb question.

why also would I need to change this if I have had the mod installed since Jan 2013 and it has worked perfectly until now?

Is it possible the company hosting my website have made changes on their server that they are not telling me about??

You have shell/ssh access for your host, activate it, log in with something like PuTTY, and run the command below:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

If you don't get a response back in the first second, it means they've banned your server's IP.

DaSpyda 21 Mar 2013 02:14

I don't know about anyone else, but I have been getting inundated with Russian, Chinese, and Italian spam for the past week or so. Spam-o-Matic has been updated...

mark99 21 Mar 2013 16:34

Yes same here. It seems the stop-forum-spam service isn't keeping up with the spammers and thus quite a few of them are getting through the net. Way more are still being blocked but it only takes a few to cause chaos.

PS - I'm about to upgrade from 2.0.8 to the latest version. I assume I just replace the files and overwrite the product with the new XML or do I need to uninstall it first?

DeepXP 22 Mar 2013 19:52

Nice plugin. I wish it had option to delete already registered spammers. My forum has become spammer paradise with around 10,000 odd spammers. (Daily around 400 - 500 registrations)

I don't mind paying for this (if you can plan to include this as a paid feature)

This used to be a feature, didn't it? I will have to turn this off, I had a moderator accidentally click on one single post from a 2500+ post member and the system deleted five spammers and one of my best members .... JUST GONE.

This tool is very powerful, but I do NOT want all of my 20+ moderators to have access to perm. delete everything.

StonePilot 22 Mar 2013 20:38

... ok, so the best solution for those of us with moderators is to configure this this.

Easy Cleanup: Enable -- Enabled
Easy Cleanup: User Action -- Ban User
Easy Cleanup: Permanent Thread/Post Delete -- No
Easy Cleanup: Allow Override -- No

Configuring your StopForumSpam to this degree will allow the spam to be removed from the site of the typical member. The moderators will be able to ban users and soft-delete (can be restored) any number of messages and/or posts.

This will prevent a catastrophe like I have seen on one of my sites where a moderator accidentally removed one of my best users from the system simply because he posted inside of a spam thread asking why there were so many spammers. With these settings, your user will be banned and his/her posts will be soft-deleted, which can easily be restored when you find out about it.

Yes, I trued Prune option.. deleted around 7-8,000 users using it but the other 10,000 spammers have activated their accounts so actual accounts and their accounts have been mixed. So difficult to filter manually or using the options provided in prune option.

ForceHSS 23 Mar 2013 08:04

There are many options in the prune to pick I am sure you can get a few more. Why did you let it get so bad before you done something about it. As I said before I have a plugin you can use that will remove all posts they made and delete them if you want yes it only does one member at a time but it's a good program pm me if you want it

DeepXP 23 Mar 2013 08:14

Actually this happened in the month I was away.. busy with some other things and when I checked the stats today, realized that almost 400 - 500 members had registered on daily basis. I will PM you in few minutes.

Make sure to upload the contents of the upload/ folder to the forum directory, not the upload folder itself.

Hey,

Noticed somewhat a bug that I hope can be rectified.

In the auto-moderation bad words, I have these

Quote:

viagra

However, they must be alone in order to trigger the mod to act upon the post. For example, if user posts something.com or [url=something].. it does not work.

How can this be fixed?

In the auto-moderation bad words, I have these

Only way I see is to remove them

Chadi 26 Mar 2013 05:12

Remove what?

ForceHSS 26 Mar 2013 14:10

The bad words you have in the list

Chadi 26 Mar 2013 14:34

Sorry, but why would I delete the censored words to get the other portions (words) working? Doesn't make any sense. That's not even what I was asking.

Nelson58 26 Mar 2013 14:40

After deleting someone with this mod, I get this error:

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

How would I fix this? Thanks...

I have the Akismet number in BOTH locations, and I STILL get:


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

I get this too

vbresults 28 Mar 2013 00:38

If you uninstall and install does the problem go away?

Nelson58 28 Mar 2013 01:08

Tried that. Nope. It comes right back.

Even went in with Filezilla and made sure every part of it was deleted. Then reinstalled it. No joy.

As I said the Akismet number is verified correct (I checked it) and installed in the two locations one in the Glowhost options and one in the Admincp spam options. Still no joy.

I'm getting the same error. Even put an updated file into forum root and still the same. Any thoughts?:confused:

TorrentMan 30 Mar 2013 02:21

Hello
I get this error in my vbulletin, Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in [path]/admincp/glowhostspamomatic.php on line 108

Thanks in advance for an nice anti spammer program.

Nelson58 30 Mar 2013 17:24

No one seems to know how to fix this error:

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

I don't know PHP to be able to look at the PHP file and figure out which value it is looking for.

What about the author? Is this a supported mod? It has been some time since the question was asked.

This should fix it -- replace the admincp/glowhostspamomatic.php file with the one attached.

It's been less than a week since you first posted about this, for a mod that you are getting free of charge, and you're complaining about not getting support?!?!

You can safely ignore that warning, it isn't even an error, as it has no effect. Given not many people are complaining about that warning its likely something in your (and their) setup, more precisely another product/add-on is causing a mild conflict. Disable your other products one at a time until you find the culprit.

Yes, I'm complaining. Gonna do something about that? Didn't think so.
It's listed as a supported mod, if it isn't it should be listed as unsupported, so we know not to expect any support for issues like this that arise.

Vbresults may have a solution. Whether it works or not, it's a lot more productive then trial and error removal of other mods that I need. When/if I find the culprit using your "method", what then? Disable a mod I need? That makes no sense. Your post is a waste of bandwidth.

Welcome to my ignore list.

I deleted several users using the mod with your replacement mod and the error no longer comes up!!

Looks like success! Thank you sir!!

Just for curiosity sake, what did you change in the new file that made the difference?

SteveLV702 02 Apr 2013 02:00

Should bring this mod to vb5 :)

sapgaurav 02 Apr 2013 10:44

will it work with vb5 too? i tried but show error

Fatal error: Call to a member function show_errors() on a non-object

rcull 02 Apr 2013 17:01

I just did an instal and didn't notice what to do with vblang_glowhostspamomatic210_ro.xml

Unless you want the mod showing up in romanian, don't do anything.

rcull 03 Apr 2013 02:19

Sounds like a good option to me!

It seems to have stopped posting problems dead! GREAT!
I am still having successful registrations though. Most registrations await email confirmation. Should this mod be combined with a country block mod? The registrations are virtually all from China and Viet Nam

How are others dealing with this.

I agree. Be sure to clear all cookies, history, and cache when testing.

Admincp > settings > user banning options

rcull 03 Apr 2013 03:47

Mmmmm.....

I don't see "User Banning Options". I wonder if I screwed up the GlowHost instal!

On another look in the stats, GlowHost is missing there too!

The user banning is in vbulletin. In the Admincp usually the first option is settings. Mine is a couple down because of a couple of mods. Open Settings and select "Options" then scroll down the list to "User banning options"

You may ban e-mails and ip address. Be careful not to ban one that is legitimate. You may also ban an entire block by using a "*" (without quotes) as the last number.

That warning actually had a big underlying problem. It encased a large amount of code necessary for deletion to work, and when that warning line broke, all the code under/inside it broke too, which is why it didn't work for Nelson and the others reporting the issue.

Another product did not cause this conflict, and the reason you aren't experiencing this problem is because this problem was introduced in a recent release. You probably didn't upload the latest files to the correct directory and inadvertently averted this problem.

That foreach statement and it's closing brace -- there was no reason for it to be there, probably set in by accident.

Hey folks would appreciate help on this. Thank you

GlowHost.com 03 Apr 2013 19:59

Those are "bad words" not "bad partial matches."

...or am I misunderstanding your question?

Chadi 03 Apr 2013 20:08

Isn't there a way to automatically block a post even using partial keywords from the list? That's my concern.
