I have been using this mod for a while now (am using phpBB 2.0.21) and can't thank the author enough for developing it and for his continued support.
I have a couple of questions/request though:
1) I have banned all biz sites but I also want to ban all .info/ sites. It appears that internally certain special characters are treated as end of word identifiers and .info/ in the word list is not picked up. For obvious reasons I don't want to put the word info into the spam words list. Is the Word Censor executed before this mod? If so I can modify .info/ into a string that would be recognized by Spam Words. Note: I have not installed the [url= fix yet but am about to.
2) I have the max spam offences before a ban set at 5 and monitor every log entry. Occasionally a registered user posts something that is caught as spam when it was not really spam and stupidly ignores the error message and continues to repost to try and get around the spam filter and gets his IP address banned. Ok no problem removing the IP address from the banned list but their spam offence count is not reduced so the very next offence gets them banned again. Is there a way for me to reduce their offence count when I decide that a post was not spam after all? Obviously wish this could be menu driven.
3) This one is a nice to have. It would be real nice for the Spam log to also identify what the Forum and Topic it was that the person tried to post into.
4) Finally this is a cheeky request but as I have the utmost respect for the author of this mod and many others who post here (bows several times) can someone check to see if there is a basic clash between this mod and the Prevent Guest Posters from posting links mod (Found via this link
). I only have the Spam Words mod installed and just installed the Guest Poster one and it doesn't seem to work. Both were installed using Easymod so I'm a bit at a loss. As the Guest poster one seems very simple at first sight I thought it would be easier for someone with knowledge of the Spam Words mod to check that rather than the other way around.
p.s. If ever an enhancement was made that allowed my spam list to be just in English but checked against translations of all major languages then I could really relax and enjoy my own forum
