Stop Spammers

The Stop Spammers Plugin blocks spammers from leaving comments or logging in.

6.04

  • Removed goto in cloudflare check. It was a wonderful dream that turned into a nightmare when it turns out 5.2 PHP doesn't support the goto statement. It was the first goto that I've coded in high level language in 25 years and I wanted it to work.

6.03

  • Added robust full wild card search for lists using * and ?
  • Restored link in registration email
  • Restored use of WP_Http for all web service file reads
  • Added PHPInfo to Diagnostics
  • Added delete transients option to Other WP Options
  • Changed from Ugly image to a more conventional one on admin panel
  • Fixed bug in link for SFS api checks.
  • Forced CloudFlare IP fixing if CloudFlare plugin not found. It is still better to install CloudFlare plugin to get most recent IP list, but at least this way the plugin can check for bad ips.

6.02

  • fix link typo in summary.
  • fix conflict with Woo Commerce.

6.01

  • Total Rewrite of all code. The plugin uses modular approach so that programmers can add new modules to detect spam.

  • added the ability to use a simple API so that plugin authors can hook into the Stop Spammers' processing to add new detection methods.
  • added the ability to block spammers by country.
  • added better proxy and firewall detection.
  • added multiple allow lists to help prevent false positives.
  • improved the plugin interface.
