Hi Afficionado,

Just curios - what major issues are you are experiencing with this plugin? What else is required to be done or what is unfinished for this plugin to work efficiently. TIA!

Hi Afficionado,

Just curios - what major issues are you are experiencing with this plugin? What else is required to be done or what is unfinished for this plugin to work efficiently. TIA!

The latest version (not on Market) has several non-critical problems, already reported here by me and others. It has been a few months and ... forgive me ... i don't remember exactly. It is all in this topic.

I use the version from Liath's site and works well. My post above was more a "i hope Liath is doing well" and not a call for bug fixes.

Ok, I hope he is well too but from his older posts I gather that he is busy running his business for a livelihood, osclass is just the sidestuff - he knows how to work with osclass and has contributed a lot.

A small TIP for actually everybody.

This EXCELLENT plugin can be also used for MODERATING ALL ADS posted.

How ? Just put as stop-words the letters "a" and "e" and maybe a few common ones ("s"  etc). So ALL ads contain them and they will be placed in the moderation queue.

Thanks Afficionado - I want to block users who enter their email address or any html/url in their description, from submitting the form (not moderation but completely block the submission). Is it possible to do it with this plugin? Thanks!

Completely block with this plugin are only the IPs. Nothing else. The rest goes flagged for moderation.

Afficionado,

I want to let you and others know that if you want to moderate all posted ads, then install the more-edit plugin and check only the first option - Moderate all ads (admins have to moderate them).

I have now installed this anti spam plugin to see if I can stop users from posting their URL or email in the ITEM CONTACT FORM - I put the stop words as @, .com and I want to see if this works.

More edit was creating more problems than help, so i had to ditch it. Also it doesn't warn people that his post will be moderated (hidden).

Also not sure if both plugins should be used together.

Ok, I have had more edit for a while and seems to be working fine - when the user submits the ad the top flash message tells them that the ad will be reviewed and the ad gets blocked until reviewed and unblocked by admin.

As I mentioned, I installed this plugin now and it is working for the purpose of stopping the contact form spam but the only thing is it does not capture or show the IP address of the user in the blocked emails or anywhere else so the IP address can be added to the block list (it is only available in the account signup settings area).

Anyway, I want to mention that this specific user seems to be able to somehow enter their own message in the contact form while my item contact form is configured with a standard message (with input hidden field) for all items but the spammer is somehow able to put their own url in message and submit the form. I opened another thread and I hope someone addresses this issue.

No, more edit is only for blocking the ad submission for moderation - which I have had for a while.

The rest is regarding this Liath's spam protection plugin, that I just installed yesterday in order to stop contact form spam, and while that is stopping the contact form spam by checking for stopwords it is not capturing/providing the IP of the user and so the same spammer keeps submitting same thing over and over.

With regards to the third paragraph please see my other thread. Thanks!

Two months late to the party. I just installed this plugin, it looks amazing.

Kudos to Liah!

I have several of these in my debug logs. PHP 7.

[24-Oct-2018 05:32:49 Europe/London] PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Error: Call to a member function numRows() on boolean in /home/oc-includes/osclass/model/Admin.php:63

Any ideas anyone ? I see this is actually an abandoned plugin, still any ideas are welcome because i (we all) need this plugin.

Thanks
