    Possible Human Spam Workflows:

    Workflow: Spam Thread Creation
    1) Spam user registers, and tries to copy/paste their spam into a new thread (or a reply to an existing thread)

    The Stop Banned words section prevents posts / threads for "common" bad words being created (these are defined by you for both post content and thread titles)

    2) Spam user keeps changing the title of thread (to break up / remove spam words), until they get passed these messages

    3) Spam user changes content (to break up / remove spam words), but still tries to place a link

    LinkPostRules.png
    The Link-Post-Rules catches links created by a users that do not meet the minimum requirements (days registered, likes, posts, like : post ratio). The minimum requirements for Link-Post-Rules are set by you in the ACP

    4) Spam user breaks up links (to try to place a sneaky url) in the post

    5) Spam user gets annoyed and moves on to profile posts / conversation / about me / home page / and then gives up, since they can not advertise their site until the minimum conditions have been met

    * A similar work flow is also be applied to thread editing, post creation, post editing, profile posting, conversation creating, conversation editing, homepage/about me

    Existing users will not see these issues if they either:
    1) Meet the minimum requirements (defined by you in the ACP)
    • minimum days registered
    • minimum number of posts
    • minimum number of likes
    • minimum post:like ratio
    2)Or they have been given the forum permissions (either directly/to the group)
    • Can Bypass Link-Post-Rules
    • Can Bypass Signature-Modify-Rules
    • Can Bypass Stop-Banned-Words
    • Can Bypass Stop-Sneaky-Urls

    3) The forum they are posting to is selected as a forum to bypass Link-Post-Rules (for instance, moderated forums)

    Hi Mike, one bug

    On my board, with this conversation setting

    Schermata 2013-03-07 alle 17.05.34.png

    in conversation I receive the alert...

    Is that the only setting you have on.

    Can I just clarify:

    You have no other link-post-rules switched on, but when you create a conversation with a link (and you don't meet the minimum requirements) you still see a warning
    and this warning is which one:

    1) A banned word has been detected
    2) You have not met the minimum requeriement
    Or
    3) A sneaky url was detected

    Oh o_O And for disabling the check in conversations?

    okay, is it this you are getting:

    This is working as expected, you need to turn off sneaky urls if you want users to add urls / sneaky urls in conversations... but that's not great is it :s

    So, next version, I'm going to split the options for sneaky urls, so you have the following check boxes in the ACP:

    Stop Sneaky Urls with Regex in title / content For Posts && Threads
    Stop Sneaky Urls with Regex in title / content For Profile Posts
    Stop Sneaky Urls with Regex in title / content For Conversations
    Stop Sneaky Urls with Regex in title / content For HomePage URL
    Stop Sneaky Urls with Regex in title / content For About You
    (and sneaky urls will only be checked if the link-post-rules minimum conditions are not met)

    instead of just:

    Stop Sneaky Urls with Regex in title / content

    My issue in conversations isn't with sneaky URLs, but with link alert. Anyway i would like to disable the check for both in conversations.

    Turn On Link-Post-Rules For Conversations
    Apply the Link-Post-Rules to conversations, users will be subject to the below conditions when creating / updating conversations

    Do this setting refered to link in conversations? o_O
    Sorry for my english... :(

    I've noticed a large increase in human spammers getting through now on my site, and posting spam links in their Home page and AboutYou field. This should be perfect for what I need. (y)

    ah, another conversation bug when switching link-post-rules off for conversations

    if($options->shsConversationOn == 0)
    {
    return parent::actionSaveMessage();
    }

    should be

    if($options->shsConversationOn == 0)
    {
    return parent::actionInsertReply();
    }

    quick fix v1.0.3
