Support » Plugin: Spam protection, AntiSpam, FireWall by CleanTalk » latest update breaks multisites

  • Resolved Deleyna


    Hey, gang…all of the multisites that I rep suddenly had their spam protection stop working this AM. They all need new codes re-entered, and there’s a white label section that feels like some of the helpful description parts are missing (they actually say “add description here” instead of the helpful bits.

    Just letting you know…

    I get it…I need to log into the client’s account and get their key…which I’ll do, but this looks scary to a client…

    Hello @deleyna

    Sorry about situation. I’m sorry about “Some description”, forgot to replace it =(
    We need you to answer a few questions to clarify the situation.
    1. What version of plugin you had before the update?
    2. Please, check your wp-config.php (in the website’s root folder). Does it contain constants from this article ? When did you set it?
    3. Do you have constant CLEANTALK_ACCESS_KEY defined in wp-config.php? When did you set it?
    4. Does the error appears on all sites? Or on main site only? Or on secondary blogs only?

    Please, contact us.

    I can’t say for sure, but I think I had the latest version in all sites before updating. I’m aggressive about keeping sites up to date.

    I think I had some of them set in the wp-config, but looking at them just now, I’m not seeing any of the keys set there any more. I vaguely remember taking the key out of the config and moving it to the main site a couple of versions ago. (Sorry…very tired today and brain is not 100%…)

    So…none of these seem to have the constant defined in wp-config.

    I’ve already entered the keys again on all of my sites that I saw that were having an error. (I may find others, in which case I’ll be more aware of answering these questions…)

    But…I can tell you that right now this error:
    2019-10-01 12:34:42: Error occured while checking account status. Error: SERVER_ERROR NO: 6 MSG: Unknown access key.
    Only shows on the sub-sites, not the main site where I did enter the code. I could probably put the code back in the wp-config on those sites…but it looks like the anti-spam is working despite the error? Not 100% sure.
