Important New update: anti-spam system + Google +1 Widget

Post by The Godfather on July 25th 2011, 11:48 am

First topic message reminder :

Important Announcement
New update: anti-spam system + Google +1 Widget


Hello,

In response to your growing demand, and to provide you with secure forums incorporating all the latest technical progress, Forumotion and his team are proud to announce you the establishment of two new features that will undoubtedly optimize security and referencing of your forums. :wouhou:




A new anti-spammers system: This new system of protection against spammers is in addition to others already in place on your forums to ensure the best possible protection for your forum. Wink
Enabling this new option is in your admin panel>> General>> Security>> Security Administration >> Prohibit registered members for less than a week to post external links and emails.



It uses a security protocol over the entire board that checks in real time the content of all posts, comments and private messages of new members with less than a week on your forum and prohibited from posting external links or emails.

So spammers who register on your forums to advertise their sites will find no more interest in wasting time on your site. Mr. Green

Of course, this limitation does not apply to the forum admins and moderators.




A new social widget "like", "tweet" and Google +1 : can be used on the portal or on every page of your forum, this new widget can be added to other widgets in order to provide access to the best of sharing content on the web. Wink



The establishment of this new widget is done via your admin panel>> modules>> Portal management (or: Forum widgets management)>> personal Widgets >> share.

For forums that already have a substantial number of personal widgets, the new social widget will not appear automatically. in this case the addition of the new widget "like", "tweet" and Google +1 should be done manually by the administrator using the steps below:

  1. access the admin panel>> modules>> Portal management (or: Forum widgets management)>> personal Widgets

  2. click on "create a widget"

  3. Widget name + table type + Widget title: as desired

  4. Widget Source: put the following code and save:
    Code:
    <div align="center" id="FM_widget_share"></div>

  5. place the new widget where you want





Another small minor improvement was made by this update for private messages title.

Indeed, in the same way that you can not post a topic without a title, you can no more send an PM without a title. It is a rule that applies on the forum in order to maintain clarity and consistency of what is exchanged.




We hope that this improvement will bring you full satisfaction. I love you

A ForuMotion Important Announcement

As I posted earlier, I have amended the new user permission to post but he is still unable to post pics as he has not been a member for a full 7 days. I hope that after 7 days he can post pics. Iam all for anti spamming but if the Admin cannot adjust a members permission because member has been a new member for less than 7 days.
Iam going to lose members Confused

Not unless they know this. You can always censor urls.

Edit: What the hell? Why did you enable that option in my forum? Us ADMINS should be the only ones who have control over them.

Not liking this. Not liking this at all. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

Did you read the update at all? Its only for a week. Rolling Eyes

Tru dat but I'd have to go through all my forums and adjust the permissions D:

Could there be (or is there a) a one step option to completely block off URLs?

abbas haider05, bold text is not allowed as it is reserved for staff only, please keep to the default font.

An external link is any link that is not connected to Forumotion or your forum I believe.

To stop new users using external links is just plain silly. On my forum if new users can't post a photo using a link to photobucket or facebook, then they'll just give up and probably never come back.

Sorry but I think a far more effective anti-spammer option would be to put all guest posts and (optionally) all posts by newly registered users into a moderation queue. If their posts never appear at all then they'll soon give it up as a wasted effort.

Furthermore, a more effective captcha system would be appreciated. The spammers cracked the standard captcha towards the end of last year. On another forum that I administer I've had only one spam post since I activated the Q&A captcha system 7 months ago.

I like the anti-spam system.

It seems to work only with registered members.
How do I stop spams with words such as "viagra" by guests?
I need help.

This seems to work only with the registered members.
How do I stop spams posted by guests?
Is there any way that I can make the forum in such that only the registered members can post?
Or is there any way that I can stop spams that contain certain words like viagra?
I am not familiar with administrating a forum.
Thanks.
