Stop Spam Links 1.2 Gold

As of 3.8 this mod seems to have lost some/all of it's functionality depending on your vb settings. If anyone wishes to build on this mod, please feel free to as I do not have the time anymore.



What does this hack do?

This hack will replace a users entire post with a predefined message that you can edit in the adminCP should the user's post contain a TLD such as .de .com etc. This will only affect people in usergroups of your choice. By default only usergroup 1 is selected (Meaning Guests).

If you enter a usergroup ID, those user's will never be able to post links as long as they are a member of that group.

If the user's usergroup ID is not entered, then you can use a minimum postcount value which all users need to meet in order to post links.

----------------------------
Example: You enter usergroupID 2 (registered members). All registered members will not be able to post links.

You enter 5 for the postcount. Registered members will not be able to post links. Everyone else will need 5 posts before they can post links.
-----------------------------
Example2: You enter 1 for usergroupID (guests). No guest will be able to post links.

You enter 5 for the postcount. Everyone, except for guests, will need 5 posts before they can post links. Guests will never be able to.
-----------------------------

Hey! I like my logic
I would not say i dislike it, but I thought it was unusual, so I commented.

Installed and works good so far.

There are many hacks which do this kind of thing. I liked this one for 3 reasons:

1. it checks pm / new thread / new post / edit post
2. it doesnt put post in moderation queue which confuses the poster and increases work for mods
3. it is very very simple so there is very little chance of it clashing with other stuff

Not one spam link since this has been installed. Like I mentioned, simple, yet quite effective

hey i just found this and i think it will be great for me.... one other idea to help fight off spammers, which i have had a lot of lately...
would it be possible to send a PM notification to a preset admin/mod or multiple admin/mods when a 'spam' link is detected so they can review the situtaion right away and either say 'sorry noob you're too new to post links' or see that it really was malicious and delete or lock the thread?
thanks....

Guess I should feel honored that this is your first post lol.

Not much freetime lately but sending a PM to mods about the thread isn't a bad idea. Will keep it in mind for the future, thanks.

To be honest, I like the mod just the way it is, nice and simple. I can find spam posts that have effectively been washed clean by this mod by clicking "get new" on my forum.

when i install this product i receive the following error:

Warning: strpos(): Empty delimiter. in /includes/class_dm_user.php(2385) : eval()'d code on line 11

at the top above my header and then in a vb error box like a postbit placement:

Unable to add cookies, header already sent.
File: /var/www/vhosts/mydomain.com/httpdocs/forums/includes/class_core.php
Line: 3036

when ever a new member trys to create a new account, i have disabled the product and then create a new user account and no issues

any suggestions what could be causing the issue?

header already sent typically represents a carriage or space before the <?php entry.

on which file would this be? header.php ?

only reason is that when this hack is not installed the site works all ok its only when the hack is installed, and i would of thought that if the header file had the gap that you mentioned then i would be getting the error all the time? or does this hack change coding?

sorry still a newbie to the forums

What occurs when you save your templates and then revert back to the originals with this hack?

Just a thought, but try uninstalling and then installing this attached product.

Maybe another hack is using the same hook and they're conflicting so I changed one of the variables.

Give it a try and let me know.
