No more language changes are planned.

Question, should the extension ban the user if found in the stop forum database? By ip, username, email or a combination?

Requires at least phpBB version 3.1.4-RC1

Is that mean it is not working with current version 3.1.3 ? :(

It means what it says. Unless you have 3.1.4-RC1 or higher, you can not use this extension.

User name and email rich.

I'm using this already the non acp version and is working quite well still.

Code: Select all

Perhaps the option for the admin to have the ext ban or not, then what form of ban (name, IP, email)

The plan is to only set the ban for an hour or so....not permanent.

Great idea. Would prevent admins getting 5 or more mails about the same spammer trying to register or post.

Very nice extension !

I would prefer an IP ban because Stop Spam Forum is an IP database, isn't it ?

What about to let the amdin choose in ext options ? Email, name, IP, both, all ?
An let the admin the duration of ban ? Like x "hours" or" "days" ? An ampty box for a number beside a dropdown menu with "hours" and " days" ?

Locked
