This is the BEST mod that can be added to a phpBB forum.. THANKS :D

I'm currently run Antispam v1.2.5
What is the simplest way to upgrade to 1.2.8 ??

Do I just follow the steps in the:
1.2.5 -> 1.2.6 upgrade
1.2.6 -> 1.2.7 upgrade
1.2.7 -> 1.2.8 upgrade

From the 1.2.8 zip file ???
So 3 mods to apply ?

Thanks

all upgrade steps starting with the 1.2.5 -> 1.2.6 etc..

But to save time, you 'll only have to run the sql_update.php once :)
Double check you have all (new) files from the zip package :D

uppon the release 2 minor bugs have been fixed and replaced in the zipfile.

Can you confirm your /includes/functions_antispam.php has a timestamp of 17-11-2007 00:43 ?
That is the very latest one, or just re-download the zipfile and overwrite the PHP files.

Finally updates to 1.2.8 and seems to be working..

I get the odd registration entry that shows no further details, just that it was a registration attempt.
Clicking open/close shows no more detail. Any Idea ? is this right ??

Also I have a couple of entries for mode 'editprofile', that have a type of 'website source' these are valid users but when I approve the registration, I get: "User was denied due to ban rules"

What ban rules ??

Thanks

Jerry, in that case please add those users to the usergroup and the websitesource will not be checked for them anymore.

The banrules in this case indicate that either a username is forbidden by the phpbb system itself, or in this case a username is allready existing ( editprofile .. )

I have just installed 1.2.8 and everytime someone registers I get a "get lost_register" message, even when they are legit accounts. Do I not have something configured right? Any help would be great. Thanks!

Thanks...

I've got 2 users who have been online for over 6 months and have posted 100's of messages each, yet they can't change their profile, even if I add them to the user group.

How do I get past this issue with the ban rules ??

I got 2 users with more than a year from their registration date (10 and 89 messages posted) and they just got in my Spam Database fields with some words. Anyone knows why this happened?

I just added them to the Bypass Words group but still can't remove them from my Spam Database by aproving their actions. I even removed the words they used from the list but still the same.
This never happened before 1.2.8 upgrade.

Just a couple of questions:

1. Why is Location not part of the word censor list? I seem to get around 5-10 fake accounts being registered every day. If I could also include country names, this mod would catch a lot more fakes. The reason is because my site is very local and anyone registering from another country is a spammer.

2. I very often get this error message when clicking on the 'Spam Database' link in the Antispam admin menu:
phpBB : Critical Error

Could not obtain ban information

DEBUG MODE

SQL Error : 2013 Lost connection to MySQL server during query

SELECT ban_ip FROM phpbb_banlist WHERE ban_ip IN ('d82046a2', 'd82046ff', 'd820ffff', 'd8ffffff')

Line : 715
File : functions_antispam.php
Any thoughts?


3. When the Spam Database form actually does come up, it gives a list of users with posts waiting to be approved. What does that mean? Are the posts not being shown on board? If they need to be approved, where do I approve them?

4. Also, what does the notification mean when it says "there are N spam reports" on the main page (page_tail.php), I believe. Where do I view these reports and what are they?

Thanks.
