Advanced Anti-SPAM Plugin for miniBB (reCaptcha, Spammer Slapper)

This is the "Advanced Anti-SPAM" plugin for miniBB 2.x. It uses the reCaptcha service to add a challenge to the post and reply form. Secondly, after a valid Captcha, it uses the Spammer Slapper service for additional anti-spam protection.

Additional options can be passed to the Spammer Slapper by editing the 'setup_anti_spam.php' configuration file. (see the Spammer Slapper website for information). These two services together will have a dramatic effect on the elimination of SPAM in your forums.

Requirements

  • miniBB 2.x
  • PHP 5.2 or later
  • Spammer Slapper PHP Library and API key
  • reCaptcha PHP Library and API key

Installation

To install the plugin you must first copy 'addon_anti_spam.php' and 'setup_anti_spam.php' into your miniBB directory. Add the code lines from 'bb_plugins.code.txt' to 'bb_plugins.php'. Then download the required libraries for each service (recaptchalib.php, spammerslapperlib.php) and place the in the miniBB directory.

Finally, edit the template file 'main_post_form' and add the following towards the bottom before the td and tr closing tags.
