Re: [RC] Disable links for new users & guests

Given the spam problems with phpBB bulletin boards, I would agree. It seems like every place a spammer could put a URL should be locked down by default. It would make phpBB less appetizing to spammers.

Re: [RC] Disable links for new users & guests

Thanks for the kind words, it's great to hear it's being used. Be sure to install the latest 1.0.0 package I posted in the new "phpBB Spam hammer thread", it passed the automod test and was submitted for approval for the mod database. I haven't needed to install anything else, and have not had any s...

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

The word blocking and profile stuff might be a problem. I should look at the profile stuff to see if there is something we should include in this MOD (instead of the current way). Please let us know how it turns out. You can also look at the install.xml files and see if they exit any of the same lin...

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

Is there an update of anitspam ACP? I worked on this because that MOD was only on 3.0.6 or 7 when I needed it. This MOD will only work with 3.0.8. I'm not sure if they can live together - does antispam ACP do any link blocking? They might edit the same files if that is true. By the way: there is a m...

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

I validated the MOD and updated to v1.0.0 to pass the automated validation. There's no major changes to the source, but there are a few things changed:
*line endings changed to UNIX
*changed include_one() to include()
*removed unvalidated tag
*version number updates

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

Thanks for the updates guys. I'm sorry, I forgot to get notified on this.

@hazymat - sorry about the automod issues. Were you able to complete it manually?

I'm going to ask for evaluation for the database.

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

Spent some time cleaning up automod. Now installs and uninstalls cleanly (file stuff anyways) on automod (latest version tested). Link to 0.0.3 is update on the first post. If it works for people I'll try to get it approved: http://dangerousprototypes.com/files/disable_links_words_spam_0.0.3.zip *Cl...

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

I would guess there was a problem with automod, maybe the line endings got chopped in the .php file. I would remove it ASAP as it is probably not working and might open you to vulnerabilities. The only place that link occurs is here: //leave blank to no use this features private $help_url = 'http://...

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

Thanks Thrifty, I guess development on this mod has slowed down because we're all happily spam free. My latest update: *No spam since installing the mod *I disabled the bad words filter because everything else works so well it just caused problems for legit users I am still running extreme mode: *80...

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

hehe... Here's a dark secret: when a legit business (like a brick-in-mortar, registered with the local chamber of commerce) shows up in a spam, I go to the site and them call them :) Most signed up for some SEO pack "get your site at the top of google" and one 30 second call is all it takes to strai...

Re: [DEV] phpBB spam hammer

I had a second reply through my contact form. They didn't know how to make it work with modx either. Is it that I gave poor locating instructions with various different spacing from the wiki translation?
