An update to my issue. I re-uploaded the full install of SMF2, overwriting the core files (leaving the DB alone of course). Then I re-activated all plugins one by one. The Akismet config settings returned under Configuration/Modification Settings/Askimet Spam Blocking.

I can the the test post and have it goes to moderation. The "viagra-test-123" post does not get stopped however. Though I was not logged in as a guest so maybe that one is not supposed to work.

Anyone's I'm not sure why it stopped working before, but presumably it's working now. If it does this is a great asset to the SMF mods.

Sorry if it's repost... but I didn't find nothing about...

I've installed and tested Askimet, and it's blocking correctly...

The issue is when one of the admins tries to Approve the blocked post by clicking in the Approve button on de first post of the topic... the system goes to Moderation Panel... and nothing happens...

I've tried to change in the flag directly on data-base too... but the post don't want to be approved! lol....

somebody to help me?

Fernando

When trying to apply mod I just get a blank page.
SMF 1.1.15 and 1.2 Beta 3

I'm trying to help a friend with the constant spam on his forum so I don't know anything about the overall setup of the forum but it looks to be completely stock so there should be no theme changes.

Everyone, please read!

I got interested in the mod (it was either find a mod or write it myself), and I noticed the exact same issue as described below. To fix this issue, it's a rather simple fix:

Open the file /Sources/Subs-Akismet.php
Go to rule 65 (Control + F to search, then search for "topicOptions")
Replace "topicOptions" with "topic_options". I don't know why the author used "topicOptions", as this variable doesn't exist anywhere, the variable "topic_options" however does exist inside that function. Guess it's a typo.

im getting abut 50 errors from few hours usage from 1 or 2 users on my forum, i think they are related to akismet

Hi all,

Mods installed on a fresh 2.0.2 SMF --> rss feeder and Akismet spam protection

This mod doesn't work with rss feeder mod.
--> Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class Akismet in ../Sources/Akismet.class.php on line 54 --> Flood protection?

Is there any way I can white list a user or IP number so that rss feeder is not checked by akismet?

Thanks for any help!   :)

Two issues I have with this mod: [note I'm running SMF 2.0.2 which is the most recent version]

1) I can't approve messages at all.  Someone posted a message that was wrongfully flagged as spam.  I click approve and I land in the admin area but nothing happens and the post remains flagged.

2) Non-admins/mods shouldn't see messages flagged as spam.  These should only be visible to people who can approve them [and possibly the original poster but that's optional] until they get deleted or approved

Fantastic, that actually seems to have solved both of my complaints.  It must be off by default -- I'd HIGHLY recommend you put this note somewhere in the docs or on the mod's page.

Thanks for the help

Hello Armada, Yes I have error logging turned on.  Is this a bad thing?  Sorry I am learning SMF slowly--but surely.  I have a silly question, isn't the error a real error though it seems to work but logs that one?

Thanks and Happy Holidays!

William

William,

It sound like you've done it all correct.

What errors are you seeing then?
