[ABD] phpBB3 Akismet integration

Post by Anon » Sat Dec 06, 2008 9:00 am

MOD Title: phpBB3-Akismet integration
MOD Description: Enables the use of the Akismet SPAM detection service to be used with phpBB3 when posting
MOD Version: 0.0.2

MOD Download: Latest Version

Demo Board : http://phobos.tk/akismet/phpBB3

This MOD will enable the use of Akismet with phpBB3. Akismet is a SPAM service - originally for Wordpress but has been ported to many platforms.

What this MOD does is send various things (username, User IP etc) to the Akismet service for spam testing. If it is classified as a spam post or user, it will be blocked. To use this, you will need an API key from Wordpress. These are free. You may get one from http://wordpress.com/api-keys/

This MOD is currently very simple. It can check based on the 4 criterion & check details on registration... but that's about it. More features are planned for later, but for now testing to make sure that it works would be much appreciated.

The demo board is as above. Guest posting is enabled, and to automatically set Akismet off use the username "viagra-test-123" just so you can see that it actually does work. Note that this doesn't work if viagra-test-123 is anything else, like the post content :P

Changelog:
  • 0.0.2: Incorporates testing at registration
    0.0.1: First version. Basic post testing
To do:
  • ACP page for inputting API key - 0.0.3
    Pulling config info from database - 0.0.3
    SPAM queue & corrections (spam -> ham) - 0.0.4
    Marking posts as spam - 0.0.4/0.0.5?
    Feature requests - 0.0.5/0.0.6/1.0.RC
Feature requests/bugs/translations? Please send me a PM here, but please prefix your post with [Akismet] to make it obvious :)

Looks like the "AKISMET_SPAM" language key is undefined (shown when the submitted post is flagged). I've been meaning to make a MOD like this, but you've beat me to it. Thanks. :)

The documentation doesn't work, I had to fix the following errors in the xml file:
- line 2 Change path of xsl file to remove leading directory as the xsl is stored in the same dir as the xml
- line 140 Add a closing action tag
- line 148 Add a closing action tag

Once I fixed those, I found the following issues:
- There is no includes/functions_post.php I presume you mean includes/functions_posting.php
- There are no require statements that match the Find in posting.php, so I added the code after the includes. This looks like a copy/paste error from the ucp.php file

I've installed the mod and had no problem creating a user named "viagra-test-123", is there something else I need to do? Purge cache?

Seems like a cool mod, but maybe you can use this one:
http://www.lithiumstudios.org/forum/vie ... f=31&t=941

cause that would be to see both in one mod ;)

Purging cache didn't help. I tested on your demo board and it worked, so not sure if the incorrect install steps prevent the check from working.

akuretz: so many dumb mistakes, so little time. many thanks :)

About registering as viagra-test-123, it should be immediate, provided you've added in your board url & akismet key as required

Hi,
I am having some trouble with akismet on my oforum. If i try to post more than one reply, my posts are identified as spam and i get some message that says "AKISMET_SPAM". Though i installed Akismet, I can't find anything in the Administration Control Panel that seems to even relate to it, so I can't figure out where i can change Akismet settings.
Can anyone help please?

thanks

A.

same here, there does not seem to be any readme etc and from the looks it seems this mod was never finished so I have aborted this.
