Spam Login Filter v1.8.0

Release Notes

  • Official 1.8 release
  • Better plugin settings page
  • Corrected a issue envolving spam login filter and tidypics
  • Rob: Matt is right. Just remove your IP from plugin´s blacklist.

  • Matt,

    I checked my site IP address at www.stopforumspam.com and there were no results. Any other ideas?

  • Ray and Matt, I think you guys are correct. I disabled the blacklist IP functions and everything works fine. How do I find the blacklisted IP addresses though?

  • @Rob: Look for "manage blocked ips" or something like this. You can remove a IP from the list.

  • Ray J,

    I installed it in 1.81 no problems. I'll let you know how it works.

    Any advise on detecting spammers already joined other than waiting for them to mess up.

    Thanks,

    Hairy Larry

  • @ Ray J: I found it, Utilities -> manage blocked IP's! My IP was on it, haha.

    Thanks for your awesome help.

  • I have depreciation message in 1.8.3 after the upgrade, I would like to ask if everything is OK.

    I did not know about the tracker pluggin. The idea is when, I would have a spammer to penetrate all the defenses. The question is how I would associate the ip with its nick name and e-mail, so I could contribute to the services reporting new spammers.

     

  • @Zirgit: Can you post the deprecation message? In theory, my latest version resolves all issues. Maybe a issue with tracker plugin?

    Just post the error so I can check.

  • Hi

    I´m using Elgg version 1.8.3 and I get an error in the settings of the plugin:

    Deprecated in 1.8: settings/spam_login_filter/edit was deprecated in favor of plugins/spam_login_filter/settings Called from [#8] /Elgg/engine/lib/views.php:503

    Does somebody know how to fix that? Thanks.

     
     
     
     
  • Deprecated in 1.8: settings/spam_login_filter/edit was deprecated in favor of plugins/spam_login_filter/settings Called from [#8] /home/zirgit/public_html/beathespread.com/
  • However the pluggin is stopping the spam, and functionnal.

    I have also:

    Deprecated in 1.8: You should pass $vars['name'] now instead of $vars['internalname'] Called from [#11] /home/zirgit/public_html/beathespread.com/mod/spam_login_filter/views/default/settings/spam_login_filter/edit.php:13
    -> [#10] /home/zirgit/public_html/beathespread.com/engine/lib/views.php:503
  • @Zirgit: I will fix it next weekend, ok?

  • its only for 1.8.1 ?????

    i am using 1.8.3 & it shows deprecated in 1.8....

  • Stay cool it is working, the spam is stopped, Ray J, is going to fix it ;).

     

  • Ray, great plugin.  I use it with 1.7.11 and have very few problems with spam.

    I have it installed on a xampp test site that I am working on in 1.8.3 and have just recently started getting a deprecated error as well.  Since it appears different than those already posted I am posting it for your investigation.  Thanks again for the great plugin.

    Deprecated in 1.8: get_loggedin_userid() is deprecated by elgg_get_logged_in_user_guid() Called from [#20] C:\xampp\htdocs\barespace\mod\spam_login_filter\start.php:327
  • Ray J

    i loved your plugin, it was working fine in 1.8.2, but in 1.8.3 i have some issues. There were "deprecated errors" which i fixed myself.  But recently when someone got marked as 'spammer' and I went to the page where I was to unmark him, I got errors,the 'view data' wasn't fetching any data and I am not being able to unmark him even after disabling the plugin.

  • Dip: There are issues in 1.8.3. I am working on it now. Wait a few days.

    And download my elgg update services to stay updated about new plugins.

  • Ray J: Thanks for yours response, I am eagerly waiting for the release.

  • I can't find the settings page. furthermore Manage blocked IPs displays Invalid Admin Section ... is the plugin posted here?

  • fassim marks every registered user as spammer on elgg v1.8.6 and this very plugin release.

     

  • @Roman: Why post duplicate comments here?

  • This plugin works great and even with api from stopforumspam.
