vB Version: 3.6.3 Rating: (39 votes - 4.74 average) Installs: 597
Released: 14 Nov 2006 Last Update: 14 Nov 2006 Downloads: 2637
Supported Uses Plugins  

Description
This will allow you to automatically scan new posts from new members for common spam keywords. If any are found, the post/thread will be sent to the moderation queue to prevent their spam from having any affect. If your filter is very strict, and a regular user happens to trigger it, no harm is done because your moderators can just approve the post.

Options
  • Maximum Posts - this will only scan posts posted by users who have this many (or less) posts. Usually spammers only post 1-5 times!
  • Keywords - a list of keywords (or any strings) to be searched. Remember it doesn't match a whole word, so a keyword of "[url" will block the user from posting any links. This is NOT case sensitive!
3.5 Users:
A 3.5x version XML file is also included.

Thanks, SirAdrian. I didn't know they could bypass the security provisions we already have by default in vB. Installed this right away.. before we have similar problems.

Hope this hack gets added in as a baseline feature on later versions of vB.

Thanks, again.

No problem.

I will try to expand this to work on edited posts as well (hopefully for tomorrow).

Just noticed a couple things this morning...

1. For some odd reason a message popped into the moderation queue because it contained a thread smilie/post icon.

2. All members with 10 or fewer posts as determined with this hack are seeing a Warning: strpos() [function.strpos]: Empty delimiter. in /global.php(360) : eval()'d code on line 166 message as they are redirected.

eta: Just as an fyi... I did disable all other hacks I have running to be certain the message was being caused by this mod and it seems to be.

We're on 3.6.4, I know this mod is for 3.6.3 and perhaps that's the problem? Thanks.
Don't worry about this now. I went for an alternative, and that works sweet.

Hi, I'm not a specialist in vBulletin but with this plugin members cannot see there own post that's being moderated and they will try to post the message again. This is a time consuming work for the moderators. I'm not sure if there's an other solution for this but I changed the plugin so that showthread displays a member own posts even if there posts are being moderated. Other members down't see there posts.
Is there an other (standard) solution for this? Is anyone interested in my solution?

Hi,

1) should depend on your filtering... AFAIK I haven't had any problems with smilies yet.

2) If you want me to help debug that I'll need AdminCP access (w/ plugin permission) to your board. PM if interested.

This is a standard vBulletin feature, so I would suggest any alternatives to them - all my code does is trigger what already exists.


BTW, I took a quick stab at the edit moderation... the feature doesn't even exist in vBulletin so it would be a pain. How many of you actually have spammers get around the initial post/thread creation and are editing posts? Nobody has done it on my board yet so it's not an immediate concern for me.
