Keep spammers out of your forum

Postby admin on Wed Jun 03, 2009 1:50 pm

In order to avoid spam posts and registration to your forums, this announcement will list all spam emails and ips as "known" spambots.
You can always use custom profile fields (tutorial on custom profile fields), during user registrations to avoid spam registrations.

Yesterday we detect the below email:

princealcober@ymail.com -> IP: 125.60.241.46

Feel free to ban this ip or email using your ACP.

If by any chance you detect any other spam emails or spam registrations feel free to post them here.

Also ive noticed that when some1 tries to register(my Forum is set so i got to activate their account)
Is that when i look at their application, and click view the user's profile:
there is never anything there.....so it is taking a chance to accept them....shame it couldnt just show their e-mail addy/Ip

gypsyroadhog,

when someone registers to your forum and he s in "inactive mode", till you activate them , you can see their registration email and IP through ACP.

In General TAB: select View inactive users -> and then click on the username.
