Quote from: SulevFan on October 11, 2022, 06:17:06 PMRunning SMF 2.1.2, Installed version of this mod is 1.3.

I cannot find any options to either check a member or submit a member to the SFS database? We have an API key, and in the previous version of SMF, we could do the above.

Could someone perhaps at least screenshot the user Interface of how these actions are being done in the new version? Thanks? Little bit lost here.

Hi,

I'm unable to delete SFS log file entries with v1.3 and SMF 2.0.19. After clicking the Delete button, all entries are still there and nothing has been deleted.

Did you do a hard refresh on your browser?

There is a safety function that retains the logs for 24 hours.  Anything older than 24 hours can be deleted

Aha I see, thanks. Just checked again and it worked after 24h.

Hi Sleepy
I added this info to your Github page but I am posting it here also in case others are interested in this also.



On my forum, I get assaulted by known spammers every day
This morning, there were 10 attempts to register that all had two or more spam data base hits

I would like to be able to set my registration parameters to not allow registering if the IP AND Email are in the spam data base.
There's no reason I would ever allow any of these attempts to become forum members

On my web site, I send IP's that are trying to abuse PHP scripts to a 404 page.
The attempts from that IP stop after that

User name is not important to me because the Name BOB is in the spam database, but if that user name is not taken, I would allow BOB to join the forum if his IP and Email were not in the spam data base.

My registration rule would be something like this
If the IP and Email are in the spam database, send the spammer to some other page
Maybe even report them so that the username gets tagged also in case that was not in the spam data base

Look at the screen shot from this mornings registration attempts

And here is the next morning - Spammers trying to register

Note that all of these would have been rejected except Michaelmot
But when I looked up the IP, it was in Russia
I would have manually rejected Michaelmot

If IP and Email are in the spam data base = reject registration

Right but this mod doesn't have the options you posted in your screenshot as far as I know. That's why I posted the other link here! 8)

What options?

Sleepy said a while back that he may look into adding some options
I am just updating info so he can see this is really needed.

I haven't had time to look into this.  I've had personal things to attend to.  Its tracked so I can when I get time.

You should not have to use Emulate to install this mod on 2.1.3!

1. What errors are you getting when you try to install?
2. What other mods do you have installed?
