Akismet Anti-Spam

vB Version: 3.5.8 Rating: (9 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 561

-----------------

This extension will automatically check new posts against the Akismet spam rulesets and identify spam if it is posted on your site. All spam is set to moderated status until an admin/moderator approves/deletes it.

This setting can be set on a usergroup basis so only certain usergroups are scanned.

I have no affiliation with Akismet, I just know that it catches about 99% of all spam I get on my blogs.

You will need an API key to use this product, but they are free and you can get one immediately at wordpress.com when you sign up.

Installs easily, just upload the included files, and install the product file. NO TEMPLATE EDITS!

You should probably use a promotion strategy outlined here:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...3&postcount=18

This will reduce your Akismet usage and not filter your regular users who you are pretty confident will not post SPAM.

A good mod that works with this hack is the "Moderation Queue on FORUMHOME" hack here:

The only other thing you need to do is:

CLICK INSTALL

You say you entered a test spam. Were you a registered user, or administrator? Are you sure you were not logged in as an admin?

Yep. I was registered user. I even created a new account and logged in as the new user.. same problem. I verified that both of my users (non-admin) were in the Registered User group, with Akismet filter 'yes'.

Thanks!

I have no idea. Works fine for me and nobody else has reported the issue. Could be you have another plug-in conflicting with it, but I have no way to know.

As he mentioned in the description of the plugin, you may setup a secondary usergroup whereby your users are automatically promoted out of the temporary new user group after x number of posts. then just filter posts of new users through the akismet plugin. I have set this up on my board and it's working wonders. Another suggestion if NoSpam! plugin.

I installed Akismet Anti-Spam on vbulletin 3.6.7, and it works great. This mod is currently my most favorite one.

This should be great, unfortunately I can't figure out this step:
Installs easily, just upload the included files, and install the product file.

Files uploaded, but how does one INSTALL THE PRODUCT FILE?

Sorry for this obviously dumb question...

EDIT: okay, I figured it out:
ADMINCP/
PLUGINS & PRODUCTS/
MANAGE PRODUCTS/
ADD IMPORT PRODUCT/
locate product-ak_spam.xml

Vb 3.6.7 PL1

Step 1: vbulletin Options - Akismet Anti-Spam: Enter (free) product key from akismet.com
Step 2: Usergroup Manager - Edit Usergroup - Akismet Permissions: Filter Posts With Akismet

If you cannot see either one, you have not finished the installation yet.
