So I upgraded to the latest version of GL and have SpamX plug, but I'm still getting some anomymoous porn spam in comments! even if i have comments disabled for the story. Any ideas for someone who doesn't do much on the server side? Thanks

Have you clicked Update MT-Blacklist in the spam X plugin?

Have you added the sites they are linking to into your SpamX plugin. It cannot block what it does not know is spam.

Make sure you really have the latest version of everything. It shouldn't be possible to post comments when you've disabled comments for a story.

Also make sure your blacklists are up to date. Feed some of the key phrases of the spam you're getting into your personal blacklist.

bye, Dirk

Is there a way to prevent all comments entirely? The site I'm having problems on is already set so that only logged in users can post comments.

Set the 'commentcode' field in gl_stories to -1 for all existing stories.

$_CONF['comment_code'] = -1; sets the default to "no comments" for new stories.

In comment.php add the following code to implement the nofollow tag. Even though they post, you will not get penalized and they will get no reward.

PHP Formatted Code

DB_query("UPDATE {$_TABLES['comments']} SET rht = rht + 2 "
                   . "WHERE sid = '$sid' AND rht >= $rht");

// START NEW CODE
        $comment = str_replace("<a", '"<a rel="nofollow"', $comment); // BYTE140205
        $comment = str_replace("<A", '"<A rel="nofollow"', $comment); // BYTE140205
// END NEW CODE
            DB_save ($_TABLES['comments'],'sid,uid,comment,date,title,pid,lft,rht,indent,type,ipaddress',
                 "'$sid',$uid,'$comment',now(),'$title',$pid,$rht,$rht+1,$indent+1,'$type','{$_SERVER['REMOTE_AD
DR']}'"
);
        } else {

I am on not the most recent version of GL, and am having the same problem:

PHP Formatted Code
// this lets you select which functions are available for registered users only
$_CONF['loginrequired'] = 1; // all of them, if set to 1 will override all else
$_CONF['submitloginrequired'] = 0;
$_CONF['commentsloginrequired'] = 1;
$_CONF['linksloginrequired'] = 0;
$_CONF['pollsloginrequired'] = 0;
$_CONF['calendarloginrequired'] = 0;
$_CONF['statsloginrequired'] = 0;
$_CONF['searchloginrequired'] = 0;
$_CONF['profileloginrequired'] = 0;
$_CONF['emailuserloginrequired'] = 1;
$_CONF['emailstoryloginrequired'] = 1;
 


Just got a whack of porn comment spam that I have deleted, and I have added the sites that they were linked to, and updated the lists..... dunno if there is a new script floating around that has bypassed things.

BTW anyone else notice that just prior to getting the spam with links, that there was a bunch of anonymous spam that didn't have links, possibly testing things ?
