Anti-Spam Links

I originally posted this in the SMF support thread because I figured it was more an SMF problem than mod-specific, but I've installed and uninstalled other mods without trouble, so it was suggested that I try here. If anyone can help, I'd *really* appreciate it. Here's the original post...

I have been having a heckuva time getting the Anti-Spam Links package to work on my forum (2.0.1).

At first I got the error others have reported about the Packages directory not being writeable. I manually created a "temp" directory and it installed successfully... except that it seems it didn't actually install.

I can't find any evidence of the Anti-Spam mod settings in the admin area, and when I grep for text it should have added (at least, if I'm reading the xml file right... it looks like it adds several comments with the phrase "Anti-Spam-Links", for example) it isn't anywhere in the forum code.

I thought to try re-installing it, but when I attempt to do that, every test fails (which, again if I'm understanding the implication of this correctly, would seem to imply that the changes the uninstaller is looking for never actually happened).

I'm not bold enough to force an uninstall without checking here first. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Has anyone experienced this before? The mod has installed correctly and I have doubled checked it over and over so unless it is conflicting with a different mod I am not sure why it is not working correctly.

It blocks users from posting links under a certain post count just fine.

When it gets to nofollow or noactive it works in preview just not when you post it.

See Screen shots below.

Works in Preview



Not when you post it



Anyone have any ideas or suggestions of what may be happening and how to resolve it?

Probably something to do withe mods you have installed. I'd start with the editor mod you have installed that changed the editor.

I don't see how that would conflict with it since it doesn't work with the normal posting method. It does the same way if you use the Quick Reply or normal method.

Anyone have any ideas?

I would really like to get this sorted before the board launches Saturday.

Hello,

We never had problems with this mod. Just an awesome mod. But now, after a forum upgrade, we have a small problem. Please help us solve it.
When trying to install the mod, a test failed (at the step when SMF is checking if every file is going to be edited well). The /sources/display.php file is not set up properly. Should we replace the wrong code with the correct code manually by editing the file?

Yes, manually edit and add the code to the files it fails on. Then you can hit install and have it install the rest.

Ok, so I have unstalled this and reinstalled it manually with no issues at or conflicts at all.

I am still having the same problems. Blocking links works fine but only in preview does it nofollow or noactive links in a certain threshold.

Any ideas or suggestions of why this might be happening?

-Thanks

You are using a different editor, most likely this editor is changing the urls before being inserted on the DB or this editor is skipping the edits made by this mod.

Yes I am but I was having the same problem before using it and to test to make sure that it wasn't conflicting I uninstalled it that mod and still was having the same problem even with the default SMF editor.

I just installed this mod on both local and my server and couldn't reproduce the issue yo mention.

After further testing I have discovered even though the mod install with no issues. The SMFPacks SEO Pro v1.1.6 is causing the conflicts.

I have a test forum with no mods on it. I install this one and it works fine. As soon as I install the SEO mod it breaks it.

It gets as far as preview but that is it.

The mod is working great, but is there any way to exclude certain members, so for example, newbies who are known to us can post links without problem?

No option like that because that is what you can use groups for.

How does that work?  I can't see a permission for it....

Ah was thinking of the wrong mod sorry. YEah, as you can see this is only a post count mod. If you want someone to not be included in it, then you have to bump up their posts. At least until someone has time to write the modification the way you want it. :)

Thanks IchBin  :)

So, now to master the art of fudging newbies' post counts without anyone noticing.... hmmm.....  :P
