Stop Spam Bots from Joining

Developer Last Online: Jan 2015 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (6 votes - 4.50 average) Installs: 159
Released: 06 Jul 2009 Last Update: 06 Jul 2009 Downloads: 909
Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code External Content  

This is my first mod, so it is pretty simple, but it works well.

What it does:
This modification queries the stopforumspam.com database with the IP address and email of the user registering. If the IP address or email is found in the database, the user will get an error message and the registration process will be stopped.

What you need:
You'll need file_get_contents or CURL on your server for this to work. If one does not exist, it will try to use the other.

Install:
Just import the product in the Admin CP.

Notes:
If you want to customize the error messages, they are named "spammer_ip" and "spammer_email" in the Phrase Manager.

Updates:
Version 1.0.1
- Fixed a small error with checking the IP address.

But it's possible for two users to have the same IP, right?

Great, installed now. I run 3.8.3 now which also makes it harder for spammers, but when I had 3.6.0 for 1.5 years I got a lot of spammers signing up.

I used stopforumspam.com manually for a while but it was hard work, this mod simplifies things a lot.

The only thing we need now is a button to report spammers automatically, those who are not listed (yet) to help maintain that database.

Do we manually need to create this file? Is this another modification? Any input would be great.

Install as I am in need of assistance in putting a stop on these bots... However, I too am confused on the file_get_contents or CURL.

Please elaborate for those of us scratching our heads.

Thank you for sharing your code with us as well!
