Tested and working with IP.Board 3.4
Adds a check during registration submission that checks the registers IP address and email address against a known list of spammer IP's and emails from stopforumspam.com. If it returns true for a spamming IP or email the registration is declined and the IP and email address can be added to IPB's ban filters.
Features: [*]Uses IPB built in functions to query Stop Forum Spam [*]Matched spam registrations can be added to IPB ban filter [*]Report spammers directly from ACP with evidence [*]Ability to whitelist IP's and Email addresses [*]Page showing the registrations that have been blocked [*]Graphs showing amount of spammers blocked per month [*]Email notification of blocked registrations
There is an extras folder in this release that has a hook requested by Extreame. If you run your forum with the normal board stats turned off but want the amount of spammers stopped to still show on your board. Disable or uninstall the hook that installs with the mod and install the hook in the extras folder.
The ability to report spammers from the ACP was only added after a lot of discussion with pedigree from SFS. I have been in contact with him since the first release of this mod when it was still just a hook. It follows guidelines that he requested. Any abuse of the ability will lead to you being banned from using SFS. Please be responsible with this. It is only available to Admins and is in the ACP.
I will continue to work with him and the changes he is implementing be sure this mod does not cause them any problems.
