CAPTCHA 2.1.1 Released

Plugins I am pleased to announce the latest release of CAPTCHA v2.1.1 Plugin for Geeklog. CAPTCHA 2.1.1 provides an additional level of defense against spam bots. This new release builds upon the original gl-captcha hack and now provides easier installation and easier integration with Geeklog and other plugins. Version 2.1.1 moves all the configuration options to an online editor, provides the ability to have the CAPTCHA image reloaded to improve the user experience and includes an additional set of simplier static images.

Beginning with CAPTCHA v2.0 there has been a joint effort with the Geeklog development team to add support for using this plugin with several core Geeklog features. Starting with Geeklog v1.4.1 and Forum v2.6, if the CAPTCHA v2.1.1 plugin is installed, you can now enable CAPTCHA support for the following Geeklog functions:

  • New user registration
  • Post comment
  • Email user
  • Email story
  • Story submission
  • Forum Post submission
This integration does not require any code modifications to the Geeklog distribution, support is there out of the box. See the online documentation for more information.

Forum Version 2.6 Final Released

Plugins The 5th and final release candidate of the forum project version 2.6 has just been released. It's been a few months of work and I appreciate the testing and feedback by the community. I'm sure there are a few remaining issues but it's been well tested over the past few months.

I've included a summary of the changes and you can refer to the plugin which includes a txt file outlining all the changed files.

There are no database changes so all that should be required is to replace the changed files or complete directories. Existing sites running a previous RC release do not need to run any upgrade/update - just replace all the plugin files.

GL-Utility 1.0.4

Plugins GL-Utility 1.0.4 has now been released. It includes a few bug fixes found during installation as of GeekLog 1.4.1. It also includes a few fixes for sites using url_rewrite and resetting log files not in the geeklog log folder.

New features include a configuration viewer to easily view the geeklog configuration settings as well as a really simple custom autotag feature. The latter feature is far from as useful as the autotag plugin but may satisfy some basic needs.

I would also like to push for the spam-x synchronization feature added in GL-Utility 1.0.3. I have used it for quite some time now, synchrinizing the black lists of several of my geeklog sites. The main advantage of this is that whenever one of my sites get spam that is not caught by the spam filters I can quickly update all the black lists to block further spam attempts on all my geeklog sites.

This feature may be protected by a password if you do not want to share your black list information, bue you may also synchronize against the Plugin CMS black list if you want. Obviously it would be terrific if one of the largest receivers of GeekLog spam attacks (i.e. geeklog.net) would enable synchronization as well. The only disadvantage is that spammers will have the opportunity to see the black list them selfs.
