I have all the default smf language packages installed but speak only English.  Yes, I am using smf version 1.1.12.

Here is the list of mod packages:

    Mod Name     Version     
1.    SimplePortal    2.3.3    
2.    SimplePortal    2.3.2    
3.    Stop Spammer    2.3.7    
4.    httpBL    2.4    
5.    KeyCAPTCHA for SMF1.1.x    1.0    
6.    New Topic in Seperate Color    1.1       
7.    SMF 1.0.20 / 1.1.12 Update    1.0    
8.    The Rules    1.3

The most recent package I installed is the KeyCAPTCHA mod.  I uninstalled it but it did not help, I still get the same test failures.

If you already have installed Stop Spammer 2.3.7 you need to uninstall it first before you install 2.3.8

The same goes with SimplePortal. You should have uninstalled first version 2.3.2 before installing version 2.3.3

Okay, I have successfully installed version 1.1.12 and added the Stop Spammer package – but not where I want it!

I have been in constant correspondence with the ISP concerned but am not getting very far. This morning, I sent them a very strong message implying that, despite their protestations, the problem seems to fall fairly and squarely into their court. To be fair, this ISP runs something over 250 servers plus another 150 dedicated to MySQL. It may just be only one of the servers that has this problem. For this reason, I don't wish to publicly denounce them. If anyone wishes to know whether a problem is similar, please PM me with the name of your ISP and the name of the server you been allocated on. I'll reply to the effect of whether it's the same or completely different.


Not sure of all the issues with the server an your installations, but this link may  be of some help to you.

Hi Snoopy, it went directly to registration settings page.

I had a doubt, if ticked is that enabled ? then its already there is a check mark.

But i could not enter the api key, since the site does not allow signups any more.

I was talking a minute ago with Stop Forum Spam's admin and he told me they haven't change it. You just need to register in their forum and you will get an API key. As it has been for years.

Hello Snoopy,

Is this mod availible for RC3 version? Because I am not ready for RC4 just yet. Because I have installed it on version RC3 and I can't seem to get it working.

When installing this mod in RC3 it should give you an error with the file Subs.php

Did you see that error?

Anyway that error is not important at all and you can ignore it, but you shouldn't have installed the mod if there was any more errors.

Did you see any more errors while installing the mod?

If there was no more errors (apart from the error with the file Subs.php) and you have already installed the mod, you shouldn't have any problem using it. You just need to go to www.stopforumspam.com to register with them, ask them for your own API key, write it down inside the mod and activate it.

Hey Snoopy,

Now they have updated their signup page and asked us to signup on the forum to generate a api key.

Earlier it was not there, ok i have done with the forum registration and api key generation now.

The mod is working fine as proposed. Keep rocking thanks for the fastest support snoopy. Thank you.

Very difficult to say without more information about your forum.

You haven't answer yet my first questions:

When installing this mod in RC3 it should give you an error with the file Subs.php

Did you see that error?

Anyway that error is not important at all and you can ignore it, but you shouldn't have installed the mod if there was any more errors.

Did you see any more errors while installing the mod?

But anyway, I would need to know a few more things:

?   How to Update:

?   Uninstall & Update. It's not necessary to re-edit the template files
unless you have in your template folder the file
ManageMembers.template.php or Register.template.php

Do you have any of those 2 files in your particular Theme folder?

Do you have any other mods that could be interfering with this one?

If you answer all that I can start looking into it, but maybe it would be faster if you contact me using a messenger program:

Do you have either Skype, Yahoo or MSN?

"Yes" I did get an error for Subs.php and "No" I didn't see any more errors while installing the mod.

Currently I am using the SMF Default Curve and both files are in the default folder.
