Solid Plugin, Not Totally Free
By , for WP 3.9.1

I've used this plugin on another site I work for and it is an excellent plugin very powerful. But.. I have to agree with WebNashr it should at least warn people from the start that this is not the complete plugin. Thanks to ActionJackson676 there is a fix for the broken aspect of the free part of the plugin but WPMuDev should know better than to let people use a broken Plugin. If they are going to allow a free side to this it shouldn't be throwing errors in the Admin area.

All and all a solid plugin but poorly implemented for non premium users. Because of this I give it 3 stars.

Works but annoying
By , for WP 3.8.1

Just like the description says, not everything requires the premium API.. However, if you do not include one it will leave an error message at the top of your admin pages, when you click dismiss it just brings you to the place to enter your API.

Once you install the plugin, click edit (on the plugin page), hit ctrl F and search for "Anti-Splog is not fully enabled."


$ust_settings = get_site_option("ust_settings");
  $expire = get_site_option("ust_key_dismiss");
  if (!$ust_settings['api_key'] && !isset($_GET['dismiss']) && !($expire && $expire > time()))
    echo "<div id='ust-warning' class='error fade'><p>".sprintf(__('Anti-Splog is not fully enabled. You must <a href="%1$s">enter your WPMU DEV Premium API key</a> to enable the powerful blog and signup checking. <a href="%2$s">More info┬╗</a>', 'ust'), "$ust_admin_url-settings", 'http://premium.wpmudev.org/project/anti-splog'). ' <a title="'.__('Dismiss this notice for one month', 'ust').'" href="' . $ust_admin_url . '-settings&dismiss=1"><small>'.__('Dismiss', 'ust')."</small></a></p></div>";

Do not delete the } ... This will remove the annoying message at the top of your admin area.
