[DEV] Akismet 0.0.1

Modification Name: Akismet 0.0.1
Author: Callum95 (AKA callumacrae)

Modification Description:

I've been searching for a while, but the only Akismet modification I have managed to find only checks whether it's spam, and does not allow the user to submit spam to the database. This, in my mind, is lazy and wrong, so I'm going to make a proper Akismet modification which, when a post is deleted as spam, submits the post to Akismet.

It won't just delete a comment if it detects that it is spam. Although that will be one of the option, there will also be the option to put them in the moderation queue (and report to akismet if it isn't spam), or to present them with a captcha. If they fail the captcha, the post be deleted, but if they succeed their post will either be put in the moderation queue or posted (up to the admin).

It will be based on the following link and the class linked to from that link: http://randombyte.net/wiki/phpbb_akismet


Modification Version: 0.0.1

Requirements: Requires fsockopen()

Features: See description

Screenshots: N/A (yet)

Demo URL: N/A yet

Modification Download: N/A yet


Please give me your thoughts, I will start development later today :)

very good, so sharing blocked ones is the better way.

Slight change of plan: while originally i was intending on using someone already written Akismet class, I have discovered that they're all rubbish. I am going to write my own class, release it as a class, and then integrate it into phpBB.

I've made the basics of a library, will probably add more features to it soon:

https://github.com/callumacrae/Akismet

When I'm done with the library I will start building it into phpBB

Wha?

I've been doing some work on this, so far it just checks and there is no way to submit spam. If someone wants me to, I'll github what I've done so far.

0.0.1 here: https://github.com/callumacrae/phpbb-Akismet

Current features:
  • Checks posts to see whether they're spam or not when posted
  • Ability to submit spam to the Akismet database
I haven't made an UMIL file yet, but:

Config:
  • akismet_api
  • akismet_enabled
  • akismet_port
  • akismet_server
  • akismet_timeout
  • akismet_version
Permissions:
  • m_delete_spam
Fairly obvious what they are, but I'm making an UMIL file now.

Hi Mate,

I was just curious how does this mod differ to this one? http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=2125159

I have been considering swapping to your mod as I have been experiencing some issues with being flagged during my own posts. I thought this would be avoided as a founder of my board but still am not sure if it's mod or akismet related. However I am interested to find out what you think.

Kind Regards

With my mod, people who are flagged as spam with just have to answer a captcha, and they will be put into the moderation queue :) it's not really that different though, I hadn't seen that.

That's an akismet problem, btw.

Hello Callum,
is 0.0.1 a stable release?
BTW: You should add your github link to your first post, too.

What are your future plans with this MOD? Are you still interested and working on it?

@GameVixienZone: Today I can't find any working download link at MarkTheDaemons MOD.

Bye Martin

Nope, it isn't. It only has the ability to check messages for spam, and I was planning on adding the ability to report messages as spam, too.
