    Hey guys how are you.

    This Spam Plugin is great but my first issue was when I delete expired ads my website was blank, I run an SQL log and my table oc_t_item_description was corrupted, this cause that I need to delete the DB and recreate losing the new ads for that day.

    I see that in Phpmyadmin there is an option to repair the database. I remove your plugin and start over.

    My question or the point is when I run the analyze or review my database table, there is a different for the item description table, for example when I run the analize process, everthing show OK but the item description table said "the table is uptodate" I remove the plugin and run the process and said OK.

    Hello Carlos,
    I have no idea what would have Spam Solution Plugin with tables in your database, as it does not create any. Your osclass installation is probably corrupted, or your hosting provider has problems with databases.
    Reinstall osclass and get in touch with their support.

    I bought this from your website, so can't leave a review here but i would just like to say to the person who has left a review. the plugin layout isn't far from what the image shows, i would say the other tabs have been incorporated into what is now the finish product and not only that. the plugin works extremely well. i only bought Spam Solution Plugin for the bot protection and it has saved me from a lot of work just 12hours in. i may start using the badwords section in time but at present its them damn bots giving me the hassle.

    cheers Michal for another top plugin

    Hi Michal

    i see one problem for me at the moment. on the duplicate section. one of my users sell alot of the same item " model trains" some of these trains have numbers and names that are the same.so some of his titles have the same wording but the content of the description is different .

    is their any chance you can put an option in to just scan the description?

    Thanks
    Chris

    Hi there.
    In your description you state that the plugin is compatible with 3.3.x version of osclass.

    Correct, it works with version 3.3 or newer.

    Hi, a couple of general questions, for the duplicate post prevention -
    1.) what does percentage of similarity mean? On what basis do you judge the percentage? .. the similarity of words, or similarity of sentences, does that involve a similar email?

    2.) For checking the number of characters, for example 200.. does that mean starting from the title + dscription = 200 characters... or title 200 chars + desc 200 chars? Again, do you take the email in consideration?

    Thanks.

    MB Themes AUTHOR11 months ago

    Hello Prateek,
    1) PHP functions are used to estimate similarity
    2) it means that only first XY characters are taken in cosideration
    3) only listings from same user (based on email) are compared

    Regards,
    Michal

    Prateek11 months ago

    Hi Michal,

    Point 2 ) - I understand the first XY chars will be considered. But again, what reference are they taken from? Starting from the title, and continuing with the description? Or XY chars for title + XY chars for description.

    Let me know if i can't explain the question well.
    Thanks

    MB Themes AUTHOR11 months ago

    Hello Prateek,
    XY chars for title + XY chars for description

    Will your plugin work with contact form spam? I want to be able to stop users (both registered and unregistered) from entering any links, url's, email address, etc., in the "Message area" of the item contact form and also in the website contact form and if they do it will warn them and it will not send the email until they remove the url, link or email from the message. Will your plugin work like that?

    MB Themes AUTHOR9 months ago

    Hello,
    Contact form messages can be controled only via banwords - when used specific words, user get banned.

    Hello,
    I want to clarify, does this plugin protect from bots too? So, can this be considered an alternative to google recaptcha for the item post form?

    If yes, have you tested and verified that it works well

    MB Themes AUTHOR9 months ago

    Hello Prateek,
    There are different ways of methods to protect your site against bots, but there exists modern algorithms that can avoid this for sure. You will never be able to create better protection as google has (it is google...).
    This is compromise between convenience for users and security.

    Hi,

    How does the 'control email by how many dots is in email name' working?

    Will I be able to ban emails from subdomains .com' ??

    MB Themes AUTHOR7 months ago

    Hello Web,
    - you can define max. number of dots in email, so i.e. will be blocked
    - you can define domain that should be blocked, i.e. mail.ru, yandex.ru etc.
