I cannot update our board to 3.0.9 because the automod tab causes a segfault on the server ever since the v3.0.9 release. I filed a report but got no help. I think it is part of the notification update causing the problem. I'm also waiting on other MODs we use to catch up.

Until I can update to 3.0.9 there will be no more work on the MOD, sorry. They phpBB3 code should be pretty similar, if you install it manually you should be able to hash out the differences.

Manual install here (Never use Automod. Peace of mind thing) on phpBB 3.0.9 and everything seems to be working perfect. I ran it through is paces and registration emails are working, notification emails are working, post limits working perfect.

Major thank you of this. Almost 2 years nothing with my anti spam question and in the last 2 months I have had about 8 users show up (Humans as I know a bot has yet to pass my anti spam question on the reg page) and they make 1 or 2 posts with links to some dumb sites for shoes or what not and leave. Hopefully this gets rid of them. :D

Try checking the edits you have made to these files.

1) there is an empty space before the opening php tag
2) use a good editor like notepad++ and save the file as UTF-8 w/o BOM ( dont ever use notepad/dreamweaver )

I must be an utter dunderhead. I performed the SQL queries, I edited the files, I purged the cache, and I see absolutely no effect: no changes to my ACL, no blocking of profiles or signatures to new members, and no screening of "bad words." What could I possibly have done so glaringly wrong? I could imagine that I might have pasted the edits in the wrong spots, but I doubt it, since no errors, syntactical or otherwise, have been triggered. Any hints to help me over this hump?

EDIT: Wow, please disregard this post. I was an idiot and didn't think to look under Post Settings. It might be helpful if the documentation made this clearer. The Wiki makes it sound like the settings are simply under the General tab. Anyway, I did find the menu and the MOD seems to work perfectly. Thank you so much!

I did, however, take the liberty of editing the error message in /includes/functions_link_filter.php to correct the typo and improve punctuation. I figure if we are going to scold users for not using English, we should probably express the error messages in standard English. ;)

The new error messages read as follows:

Your post looks too spammy for a new user. Please remove bad words or non-English text.

Your post looks too spammy for a new user. Please remove off-site URLs.

Your post looks too spammy for a new user. Please remove bad words or non-English text.

Your message looks too spammy for a new user. Please remove bad words or non-English text.


Hope this helps.

The only niggling problem I am having with the Spam Hammer is that the minimum character per post filter is not working. I have it set to 73 per suggestion, but posts of any length can be submitted. This is true of both guests and new members on their first post. I have checked both the ACP and the PHP file, and they both say 73 characters. I'm not sure why the filter isn't working.
