Spam Login Filter v1.8.4

Release Notes

  • Bugfixes
  • New "whitelist" feature

All work done by Matt Beckett. Thanks, Matt!

  • New version by Matt. If something gowrong, call him. :)

    Thanks, Matt.

  • if an email domain is added to domain blacklis, login is denied for those members who are already registered with that domain

  • yes - blacklist means we don't want them :)

  • Sometimes I get spam reports from SFS that users are blocked based on IP blacklist. But in the plugin settings I have disabled check IP.

    Second thing I have with this new version is that the IP addresses from blocked users do not appear anymore in the admin section (they did in the previous version of the plugin). In the email notification to admin there is however an IP address mentioned. Maybe these two things are related.

  • Fix for the second part of that is on github.  I'll look into the first part.

  • Thanks ! You also might want to fix the languages/pt_br.php It is missing a "," at the end of line 79 of the array.

  • @Gerard: Very, very sorry. I will release a new version. My site is still 1.7, do you believe it?

    Well, let´s go to github...

  • @Matt, hint: You are always checking IP in "spam_login_filter_verify_action_hook" during registration, but it should be depending on the settings in admin.

    @Ray. Time to upgrade :-) It would be best to release a new version on the community because currently anyone who is simply downloading and installing it on their site, their site will go down immediately.


  • I will. The project has been developed by a Brazilian (Me) and a Canadian (Matt), so we try to keep the translations sincronized in the releases.

    But I didnt had time to test the latest version. Just traslated the Brazilian part and releasead to the community. I will release a patched version today.
