Q. Can I integrate the SBST into MediaWiki?
A. You can, yes. A mod has been created, and instructions written to do such, by MediaWiki user, Carl Bennett, and can be found at;

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Check_Spambots

Q. I received an error about an undefined function with curl_version, what do I do?
A. Please refer to the following knowledgebase article:

KBID# 32: Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_version()
http://support.it-mate.co.uk/?mode=KB&kbid=32

Q. Can I modify the match conditions to allow for more than one selection (e.g. IP and e-mail OR IP and username?)
A. You certainly can, yes. Though not documented in the code, it can be done. For information on how to do this (note, manual code editing is required for those using v0.23 or earlier), please see;

http://botscout.com/forum/index.php/topic,17.msg194.html#msg194

Q. I've only got an ASP website, can I still use this?
A. You can, yes. For an ASP function, please see;

http://temerc.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=6234

Note you will need to use one of the hosted versions (such as the one provided in the example code)

Q. How do I disable the various DNS blacklists?
A. You can either disable them all by using the dbl= option in the querystring. For example;

check_spammers_plain.php?dbl=no&....

Or alternatively, you can disable them one by one;

Disable Project Honeypot check

ph=no

Disable SpamCop check

sc=no

Disable Spamhaus check

sh=no

Disable Sorbs check

sb=no

For example, to disable Spamhaus;

$sURL = 'http://temerc.com/Check_Spammers/check_spammers_plain.php?sh=no&ip='.$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];

Q. It's not saving the information to a text file, whats happening?
A. By default this is turned off. You can enable it by opening config.php and changing;

$bln_SaveToFile = FALSE;

To;

$bln_SaveToFile = TRUE;

Q. I'm getting a "no such file or directory" error?
A. This will typically occur when the spambots folder is either missing, or does not have the proper permissions. I've got the script to tell you when the folder is missing, but not got it checking the permissions.

For reference please see;

http://www.stopforumspam.com/forum/p1319-2008-09-21-11%3A44#p1319

Q. Can I use this with my WordPress blog?
A. Yes you can! A mod for WordPress (tested with 2.6.5 and 2.7) is available at;

http://temerc.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=6267

Q. Can I use this with my phpBB2/3, SMF, punBB etc forum?
A. Yes you can!. I've provided details and mods at;

http://temerc.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=71

If your forum/blog etc software isn't listed, let me know and I'll work on adding it for you (note, if it isn't free, I'll be unlikely to do it as I'd need a licence for this, so you'd be best speaking to your software's developers).

Q. How do I use this?
A. This "program" can be used in one of two ways;

1. Scripted (via check_spammers_plain.php)
2. Manually (via the main UI)

The main UI is accessed via index.php, and provides detailed information in a "clean" interface.

Example:
http://temerc.com/Check_Spammers/?name=&email=&ip=122.200.96.80

check_spammers_plain.php, can be accessed via your scripts, and displays a simplified version of the results (i.e. is the IP/username/e-mail a spammer, and if so, who has it in their database).

Example:
http://temerc.com/Check_Spammers/?name=&email=&ip=122.200.96.80
