All fixed up.  It was a rename of things due to a complex SMF bug that won't be fixed in 2.1..

OK so I am running httpBL (but thats becoming problematic so I have been looking for alternatives especially for when I upgrade to 2.1)

Is anyone running this succesfully with demonstrated results on 2.0.19?
If so I may install this on the existing forum.

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it

Is this mod (v1.2) also compatible with SMF 2.1.2?

I am not aware of any compatibility issues.

Hi, Really appreciating this Mod, on the whole it works great.

However, I recently had a person want to use the username Jason and it wouldn't let him.

It led me to realise I didn't understand this setting:



I've now disabled the check username option to allow him to use the board.

Would changing that number do anything?

Would checking the box further down in the settings that says ignore wildcard username checks be a better option than disabling username checks?

Sorry to ramble on a bit, just wondering what the best option is.

You can see that "Jason" has been reported many times.  The Confidence level is returned by the API for how much it believes "Jason" is likely a spammer.  I realize that the Stop Forum web site doesn't show the confidence level, only the API.

http://api.stopforumspam.org/api?username=Jason&json

You can see by the API test, it is reporting it as 72.73 right now.  You can set it to 75 right now and it would let Jason through.  If you notice more spammers are getting through using more common spammer names, you can lower the threshold.

If you check the ignore wildcard usernames, it sends to the API to do exact match for "Jason", but it doesn't seem to change anything here.

If you are wondering more about data that is received by the mod, you can enable the debugging of SFS requests, to see all the data as returned by the API.  This is not really meant to run in production, but can help answer questions about the data being received.

Thanks for the prompt reply. Changed setting to 75, everything OK for now.
Thanks

Is not the default setting for the box labeled 'Check Username?' set to unchecked?

And if so, wouldn't it let anyone's names through provided the other criteria aren't met?

And lastly, do you recommend leaving the box unchecked?
Please do not PM me for support.

SleePy

Its not checked by default.  As seen, it can produce false positives.  But if you are getting hit hard, it may be worth trying to enable it and see if it helps curve spammers.  You may want to disable the wildcard matching as I indicated, it will match any name on partials.

For SMF 2.0 this mod cannot be uninstalled because of an error in the package file 'sfs_hooks_remove.php' - there is a comma missing at the end of the second last hook name.

The only way I could uninstall the mod was to delete the previous package file from the './Packages' directory/folder and upload a new package file that contains a fixed version of 'sfs_hooks_remove.php'.

Find:
    'integrate_manage_logs' => 'SFSA::hook_manage_logs'
Replace with
    'integrate_manage_logs' => 'SFSA::hook_manage_logs',
Life doesn't have to be perfect to be wonderful ...

All fixed up in v1.3  Fixed a issue with the tracking page as well not showing details like it was supposed to and a undefined index issue on logs.

Also, can you bump up your PHP any higher than 7.3.x?

Somehow it's not fixing the issue, tried it several times.

I can ask my hosting provider. Should it work?

I don't know that it has anything to do with it but you're on a deprecated version.

Likely the mod requires 7.4 for its new features. Can't confirm as on mobile but the error is suggestive to me.
