Supported Versions: IP.Board 3.4.x

This application will strengthen the security in your forum in regard to spam posting by way of Keyword checking.

You can add unlimited spam keywords that you want to block from being posted in the following areas.

1) Posts

2) Topics and Topic Titles

3) PM Subjects and Pm Messages

4) Signatures

5) Profile Status Updates

Keywords can be anything. You can also block urls with this by entering www, http, .com or block a particular url/s. The possibilities are endless. This is also ideal imho to protect against rivals who might approach your users in private to join their forums.

Anyway, only users whose post count is below the number set by the admin will be affected by this. You can also exclude a group/s and/ir forum/s from the Spam Stopper restrictions.

Also if an user posts normally and then will try to edit his/her posts to place a spam keyword, then the post edit will not be saved but they will get an error informing them that their post content has a suspected spam keyword.

Installation and Configuration:

To install this application, upload the admin folder inside the Upload folder to the root of your forum folder. Then go to your Admin Panel->Applications & Modules->Manage Applications & Modules and on the right side where it says: Applications Not Installed you will see a new application added called: Spam Stopper. Click on the install button.

To configure it go to the Other Apps tab then from the drop down list choose Spam Stopper and it will take you to the management/settings area.

Several screenshots of the Application Settings and how it looks like when being used are attached below so it will give you a more detailed idea.
