phpBB Stop Forum Spam

I had very little to-do so I crafted a basic, simple hook for phpBB3 which queries the API of StopForumSpam and checks if the IP address is located there, if the result is possitive, a message is displayed and the application exits. Simple, yet effective.

Credit to Maurice Randall for base of the code; I merely wrapped it together, did some minor changes, and wrote the hook for it.



It’s also available here:

  • replaced file_get_contents with cURL.

  • k0nsl
