How to get rid of spam in your phpBB forum?
Using EasyBAN, you will be able to ban in a convenient way any post/topic in your phpBB forum.
The idea came up thanks to the spam posts I started to get sometime ago in a forum I use to admin.
Time is one of the most precious things we have. After having spent a number of (unproductive) hours to manually delete spam posts, look for their authors username, email address, IP and then finally add them to the ban list, I decided to write this MOD to let anyone facing the same problem to easily (and quickly) perform this task.
* manually: by following the instructions found in the EasyBAN_INSTALL.mod file
. if not yet installed, install EasyMOD 0.3.0
download EasyMOD at: http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=21309
to install EasyMOD follow the instructions at its site.
After EasyMOD is installed:
. unzip contents into: [forum path]/admin/mods/EasyBAN
. login as admin and click on Install MODs in the MOD Center
. follow the instructions on the screen
