First phpBB extension review team review completed. A few minor bugs were fixed along with adding a user interface for a test mode. More here.
I’ve been working on a spam remover extension, and today I released a first version of this extension. It uses the popular Akismet web service heavily used to moderate comments on WordPress sites automatically.
This extension is not designed to moderate new posts and private messages using Akismet. There’s already an extension for that, created by Senky. This extension can find deep, embedded spam and remove it.
I’ve had many clients over the years with this issue and there hasn’t been a solution, at least until now. But this is a development version, so it shouldn’t be used on a live board.
You can learn more about it on its page.
