Introduction

Site Security

"R Antispam" is the only Joomla antispam extension for forums (Kunena, NinjaBoard and ccBoard) that uses a Bayesian algorithm. This means that spam recognition is improved over time.
It can be adapted to prevent spam in other extensions.
It works better if integrated with Akismet. You can get an akismet key at akismet.com. And if you think that you have to pay for a key, better look again and you will find that you can get it for free.
The extension adds a reference to the developer's site, but you can remove this in configuration.

This is a great component, really does weed out the spammers. However, it has one massive drawback, it removes any link somebody posts on my forum, it doesn't seem to be able to differentiate between spammers and non-spammers. So basically if a genuine member tries to post a link from their photo bucket account, the software won't let them. I can go into the component and check them off as non-spam which obviously means their photos will appear. I can also add users to the white list which means they can post links. However I want people to be able to post a photo without them having to wait for it to appear. It also doesn't look good because they get a warning message which is basically accusing them of spamming. There needs to be a way of adding safe links such as photo bucket so that people can post these links without them being deemed spam. Other than that, it's a great component, but I've had to disable it for the time being which is a great shame because it works so well.. But it's basically working too well, if that's possible.

Owner's reply: Greetings, Ironside.
Thank you very much for your honest review. I totally agree with you. The thing is R-Antispam uses a heuristic algorithm to detect spam, that's way it may detect false positive sometimes.
And that's the reason why I added integration with Akismet. When you get an Akismet key spam detectection is triggered upon user registration. This way it prevents spammers from registering.

I had disabled new user registrations because I was getting so much spam on my forum. I installed R Antispam a couple of months ago and re-enabled new users. Not a single spam message has made it through since, hundreds of them have been trapped. Everything a good extension should be; simple, easy to use and does what it says on the tin. Excellent plus.


Saved me!

I used it with Kunena. Just great. Saved me. I used to delete about 10-15 spam threads everyday.


Awesome

Amazing, I was getting about 800 spam registrations per day before I installed this extension, I installed it, no configuration at all except to turn on "Use Plugin", and now 2 days later no spam at all. :)

Owner's reply: Hi, Mayakovski.
Thanks for the review. But I have to say that turning on "Use plugin" has nothing to do. As there is no plugin for R-Antispam yet.
What you should have set is the Akismet integration with an Akismet key. That's what should have stopped the spam registration.
PS: If you want to remove the bottom back link there is an option in configuration for it.

Great Extension

easy to install, easy to understand BE, easy workflow, works effectively.


Uploaded my new website today and within less than 3 minutes RAntispam had logged and blocked a spammer.



Akismet integration makes this a must-have extension.



I have other protection installed but this extension stops things 1st up.



If you use Kunena Forums then use this too.


Waiting!


Posted on 11 July 2013

Just installed it after a fresh install of Joomla and trying out the Kunena forums for the first time and having to spend time deleting spam posts instead of uploading content to my new site. Aggh, thought I would have to pull down the forums, but am now waiting for the spammers to attack.

Owner's reply: Integrating with Akismet provides nearly 100% spam prevention.

Excellent composant

Excellent component that helps fight very effectively against spam forums, thank you.


Extensions like this make using forum(Kunena) is the MUST for web site. Any comment systems don't have such good protection against spammers. Let's everybody use #1 forum (Kunena) and #1 antispam tool(R-Antispam)


It is absolutely easy to install and tweak. What a relief! Within fifteen minutes I was finished. Installed it this afternoon and this evening it already had caught six spammers. For one of them I had to click the spam button myself. It is self-learning, that is cool.

Digital Market is like many other paid downloads manager component but what makes it stand out from the rest is the following features: • Possibility to upload documents from front-end. Any user (depending on permissions set by administrator) is able to upload a file, even guests, and set a price for it. Any other user who tries to download the file will be asked for payment. This means that you can define what user groups are able to upload and sell files on your site. • Definition of permissions on actions for managing the component based on ACL. In other words you can specify who does what. The permissions you can grant include download a file, upload, change price for a file, change currency of the price, download file without paying or use HTML editor for setting the description of a file. Demo version doesn't support payments but it can be used as a download/upload manager as long as you set items prices to zero or you allow "free download" to all users.

Unless you use SSL, a user logs into Joomla sending his password in plain text across the network. A malicious user could take advantage of this vulnerability and can have access to the back-end. This plugin is an alternative to SSL. It uses RSA to encrypt passwords or any other data you want in your component. It is necessary to have the bcmath extension Works with Signal Login, JTP Horizontal Login, PWC Login, Inline Login and vtj login modules. For other Joomla extensions, like Alpha Registration, Community Builder, Core Design Login Module, Yoo Login, YJ Pop Login Module you can find plugins at http://www.ratmilwebsolutions.com/downloads/encryption-plugins.html. No need to set up. Just install it and install the required plugins.
