I am using the Mercury Theme on my SMF forum Version 1.1.8.  I uploaded and install your MOD to my site and I do not see it anywhere when I am on the admin side of my forum.

I go to Admin > Members > Registration > Setting

and go down to the bottom where your image shows that it should be but nothing.

Any ideas as to why.  The upload and the install seemed to work fine with no error messages at all.

This is from Themes/default

Themes/mercury11rc3 doesn't have a Register.template.php in it.  In fact it doesn't have a lot of the files that are in the Themes/default directory.

This is the only time I found an error in the ERROR LOG for Stop Spammers:

Guest                                                      Today at 09:27:50 PM

MY FORUM URL WAS HERE - REMOVED BY ME
Error with DB Anti SPAM. Connection Failed.

Don't know if it was working or not, but again I don't see any settings for me to use when I go to Admin, Members, Registration, Setting

I can see in your Register.template.php file that you haven't done any modification in it.

It is exactly as it comes from SMF in the first place.

Are you sure this is the Register.template.php as it is just now inside your server inside the Themes/default folder?

If so, try to uninstall the mod and install it again or try to follow the steps for "manual installation".

M-DVD,

I have checked under the Admin > Packages and it says that your mod is installed.

After I upgraded to Version 1.1.8 of SMF, I installed  your mod.  I used the Admin > Packages > Upload Package to upload your mod to my server.  Once uploaded, it showed everything was fine.  There were some files that didn't show "Tested", they were left blank.  Could this be the issue.  Should I make sure that all files are writteable before uploading and installing?

The Register.template.php is from my Themes/default and not from my Mercury 1.1.RC3 theme that I am using.

I am at work right now and have no access to my site...ITO people have that site blocked here at work.  Just lucky they don't have this site blocked.

I really need for your mod to work.

Thanks for your help.

The installer only changes the Register.template.php file inside the default theme.

If you have another Register.template.php file inside your theme folder you need to do the modifications manually inside it.

The Mercury theme has no Register.template.php file in it.  I checked that last night when M-DVD asked me to attach the Register.template.php file.  I could only find that file in the Themes/default directory.  All the other themes didn't have a Register.template.php file.

Also, you can check the support forum if some people have had this problem installing MODs after updated to 1.1.8, or open an topic.

The problem that you mention is "mysterious", not seems about this or any other MOD. It seems something extra. Those files have write permission? Will be another problem?

M-DVD and snoopy_virtual,

I have it working now!   :D

I removed the earlier version of Stop Spammer that I installed yesterday afternoon.  I then downloaded the new version.  I went to my Administrative side of my SMF board and made all files writeable, then I proceeded with the upload and the install of the MOD.

Everything went fine.  I know have the settings info on my Registration > Settings.

One issue I found...the image files (gif) did not load over into my Mercury theme Icon directory.  I unzipped the MOD and saved it to my hard drive and then FTP'd the images up to my Icon directory under the Mercury theme.

Don't know why they didn't load up during the install.

But now all is okay.  I have the little magnifying glasses and the search works.  It already shows 1 Spammer blocked.

Again THANKS! for all your assistance and advice.  Also for a great MOD!!

Already got the button but I used a different mod/method to create it. Perhaps you could alter it accordingly for your own purposes. My rendition adds to the tracking section so as to not time out or overload anything. Since the variables are already puled and identified its just a matter of submission with the additional API key set in settings.

Of course the submission is not visible if you dont have access to the area OR if its your own profile. As I havent made the button public on my site due to possible hazards (idiots thinking they are banning). IF you consider it pressing it would interfere with registration on ANY form of site that is making use of SFS's database.  Of course if you register there you have the option of removing keys from your profile.. so Im on the fence.

I can explain this as simply as possible.. If I do it & implement I guarantee it.
 If I do it and you implement it its a crap shoot.

Yes, the installer only upload the 3 icons inside de default/images/icons folder and you need to upload them manually to your theme images/icons folder.

I have been trying to sort this but cannot find how.

M-DVD should add this point to the FAQ

Love the concept of the module!!!
 
However just downloaded and installed v 2.1 in smf 2.0 RC1 and when I try to add a new user from the Admin I get:
 
The database value you're trying to insert does not exist: is_spammer
 
Sadly, I must uninstall your module unit this is fixed.
 
I appreciate the hard work...

Thanks for the hint (I was using v 2.1 by the way).  But I can't have my admins doing this so I'll have to wait for v 2.2.
