    StopForumSpam database: useful or bothersome?

    This morning I received a SPAM message sent via our contact form. How do you guys stop these? Will Spaminator also take care of these?

    StopForumSpam database: useful or bothersome?

    OK, so I have SFS set up, and DNSBL BUT I don't have the Project Honey Pot key entered. does that render it useless? 2- Shared IPs check limit: how many days is best practice to use? 3- As far as "Enable CAPTCHA for guests" I selected reCAPTCHA v2" and both keys are in. Will Spaminator remove...

    StopForumSpam database: useful or bothersome?

    I don't see any "username" option in SFS. Spaminator was suggested. Thanks, I see we're using DNSBL but it was set at "Require the registration to be manually approved by an admin." So that was not helpful. And the HoneyPoy key was missing. However, with the wide use of VPN, can we really...

    StopForumSpam database: useful or bothersome?

    That's what I thought too, so is there a way to see a log of rejected registrations? It should be possible to show the efficacy of the system, no?

    I noticed the trigger values can go up to 3, and they suggest we use the same numbers in both first settings. Maybe I'll try using that value and see if it nearly eliminates the need to "moderate." I will definitely report back. Hopefully it can work.

    This? What I'm trying to do is find a way where we never need to manually approve any registration.

    How can we minimize the need to interact with it? Short of disabling that (and what could happen if we did?)

    StopForumSpam database: useful or bothersome?

    About new registrations being checked against the StopForumSpam database. How many manual registrations do you have to approve, we get annoyed by the false positives. Waste of time in the end. Yet, I contend that it has saved us automatically from known spammers. However, I have no way to test...

    XF 2.2 Bug? Alert icon shows "New" count even if none

    Like I mentioned, I don't use the default. But it's called the badgeContainer, so do a template search for : .badgeContainer (note the dot as well) In the results, select the template that has a .less at the end so it does not get changed upon updates. In my template, I get this: //...

    XF 2.2 Bug? Alert icon shows "New" count even if none

    What if your forum URL? All themes are not set up the same. This is a theme from Xenfocus.

    XF 2.2 Bug? Alert icon shows "New" count even if none

    I'm sorry but I do not truly understand what you are referring to. What can be moved to the right, the red bubble as it refers to the bell icon? Or the bell icon as referring to the default position? Can you share what you have on your forum right now?

    That is done within your theme template. The red bubble came as a default for the one I'm using.

    Hey, very sorry, I just saw your post. Sadly I don't remember how I fixed it. Are you referring to mobile or desktop?
