Stop Spammer

Question:

I tested Stop Spammer by using an e-mail address from stopforumspam. As expected, that account is tagged "Awaiting Approval".

I did that last night, and I saw "6 Spammers blocked up until today" under that entry.

Today, I checked again, still only that one account account listed as "Awaiting Approval", yet I see "23 spammers blocked up until today".

23?

I thought *all* suspected spammers move to the "Awaiting Approval" bucket?

Sometimes the number showed there is not the right one.

Maybe the number "6" you saw the first time was the one in the cache but the real one was "22" and it was updated after you visited the page.

Sometimes, if you want to see the real number you need to do the "Recount all forum totals and statistics" task in the "Maintenance" zone inside the administration.

It's a known bug of this mod.

I think I have it figured out. I checked the source code and it increments the counter for everyone who is checked against the stopforumspam database. So it's a wording issue. Instead of "spammers blocked" it should read "people scanned".

snoopy_virtual

Actually it should be a mix between the two of them, because if you scan somebody against the SFS DB and it's not there, it doesn't increment the counter.

Something like "People scanned and found guilty" or similar.  ;)

I thought the behavior is to move people found in the SFS DB to the "Awaiting Approval" bucket. In my case, it seems to be blocking them from registering (I installed the mod a few days ago, I'm showing 446 blocked spammers yet none show up under "Awaiting Approval".

well mine says 3572 Spammers blocked up until today and truthfully when it is found in the sfs database it moves them to the approval area. Where I then go to make sure that the ip is actually found (or name or email) and take it from there to allow or not.

I figured that the amount showing as blocked was an inclusive amount from sfs about how many have been blocked by all users of this mod as a total not as my site only since I do not have that many members nor registrants.

I could be wrong....LOL

That's the way this mod is done. They should all go to the "Awaiting Approval" list.

If it's not working like that for you, may be it was not installed properly or it has a conflict with any other mod you may have installed.

Try to un-install it and re-install it again.

Or give me a list of the mods you have and I will tell you if there is a conflict with one of them.

Anyway I haven't been using this mod in my forums for a long time now. I use mod httpBL instead, together with just one anti-spam question and I am better protected against spammers.

Does any one know if a version for SMF 2.0.11 will be available. This version of 2.3.9 doesn't seem to work with 2.0.11.

I have used it through all SMF 2 versions and it has worked fine, except the time when not everything uploaded (internet-server fault).

What other mods do you have installed?

Did you have any messages while installing?

BigJoe,

I just went through most of your installed mods(not all of them mind you because a few I didn't see on the mod site) and the Users Mass Actions mod does a good amount of changes to managemembers.php which is the file you're having trouble with. If it was me I'd start looking at that first.

Thanks for the info. I checked the link and it says that it doesn't even support my SMF version. Just 2.0.2 and lower. So I'm confused about that unless I downloaded it from some where else. That I don't know.

The reason why I have that mod is that it gives me more options when editing users accounts. So I don't know what to do about the problem with "Stop Spam". If you get any ideas let me know.

I guess I forgot to say like I did before. Sorry editing the pages is some thing I just didn't want to do. Last time I tried to do that I got so screwed up. I had the page all screwed up. I had to have one of the techs here fix it for me and I don't like bothering them. and be sides. This mod is not needed. Just the httpBL is needed.

Snoo[?], Yes I all ready know now to do that. Like I said above last time I screwed the page up and had to have some one fix it. So I don't really want to do that. The "stop spam" is not needed just the httpBL mod is what I needed.

Why this was not labeled as spam despite being in the stop forum spam db?

Could be that your connection to the SFS database wasn't alive when the registration was attempted.

Check your settings in Admin > Members > Registration > Settings > If the Connection Fail with Anti SPAM DB...

Do you have Tapatalk installed?


PS, your two screenshots don't match...
