Spam Hammer 3.0 MOD upgrade to 3.1 Extension

3.0 MOD https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=2122138 I used the above extension on my forum while I was at 3.0 and it was fantastic. Features that I used and sorely miss since my upgrade to 3.1: * Block posts by new users with links (this alone stops almost all spam) * Delete zombie ...

Re: Block posts with "http://"

All banning does is fill up your ban table. I wasn't actually banning users. Just preventing them from posting with links as well as other stop words (porn and product related). That does leave you with a spam user but with no posts. Spam Hammer then would prune users that had no posts after a cust...

Re: Block posts with "http://"

I have been using http://keycaptcha.com on my 3.1.x forum Thanks for the tip. However I find that captchas work better to stop users from signing up than to stop spam. My experience with my forum has been that captchas are either immediately useless or they become useless eventually while at the sa...

Re: Block posts with "http://"

Also there are no 3.1 spam extensions yet. That is not correct. Have a look in the Extensions Database . I've already looked there. If you follow that link you will see that there are zero extensions under the Anti-Spam category. I will put in an Extension Request for Spam Hammer (or similar) to be...

Block posts with "http://"

Hi all, Recently upgraded to 3.1 and I've been battling with spam again. I had things mostly under control at 3.0 largely with the help of the Spam Hammer mod. Among other things, that mod allowed me to prevent new users from creating posts with links (not just the [url] tag but anything starting wi...

Re: [RC-1] spam hammer: ends spam. period.

I've been running this MOD for a few days and wanted to provide some feedback: First and foremost, this MOD rocks! It works really well and no bots have gotten through at all. Went from 5 spam messages a day to 0. It is now feasible again to administer my forum long term. So thank you very much to e...

Re: [RC-1] spam hammer: ends spam. period.

Figured it out. My site was still running PHP 4. I simply upgraded to PHP 5 and that fixed the issue.

For anyone else that may run into this problem, unlike phpBB 3.0, this MOD is not compatible with PHP 4.

Hope this helps someone else.

All the best,
Metalogic

Re: [RC-1] spam hammer: ends spam. period.

Thanks for the MOD, it looks like what I need. I carefully followed all the installation instructions but ironically, I'm getting an error on the one file I didn't modify: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /homepages/36/d9390833...
