Need Help - Geo Location Block at Registration?
« on: March 08, 2019, 05:20:49 PM »
Hello everyone,

Do you know any mode can block registrations from targeted counties or just allow targeted countries?

I'm creating a forum just with my native language and i don't want registrations from other counties. This can also be a great spam preventation.

Thanks!

Yup download at
https://github.com/Spuds/SMF-GeoIP [nofollow]

Thanks for the info. However, can you explain a little for installation?
Also i see that this MOD needs good resources and it logs every IP information. I just need a lighter mode. This can be a problem to implement in a shared hosting right?

Sorry, my bad...
It looks like the mod is not effective anymore since MaxMind do not give active free CSV files.

Thanks anyway, i think i'm going to setup a localized anti-spam in registration instead of using Geo Location.
