Remove/delete spam quickly-module ?
October 31, 2006 08:26PM
Hi:

I have searched but not found... anybody knows if there is a way to quickly delete *a lot* of spam from a Phorum? If I could search for specific strings (like "casinopoker") and then be able to 'delete' all messages found, that would be great.

Currently I'm doing it one by one. But there are thousands.

Thanks for your help!

Sincerely yours,


Juan Antonio Ruiz Zwollo

Very actual future :)

Can developers add such function in phorum's control panel?

I charge $100/hr for custom Phorum work. I could drop it to $75/hr if the work is released under the Phorum license.

He-he :-)

And how much hours you need?

Hi Brian:

How many hours would you need for such a module? :-)

I want to see if I can pay for it through donations at my site or something.

Greetings,

I'm willing to write an addon for this or write something for the admin interface, if it helps in raising funds for the MySQL conference money pig ;-) I do have an idea for creating a filter based interface (where you can add filters to find messages to delete) with a preview option so you can see what will be deleted. This would take about four hours of programming I think. So if you want to raise funds for this or if others would like to join in for funding, please let me know and I'll squeeze in some development time for this.

Hi Maurice:

I have added a 'Donate' button on my Phorum (http://bbs.oaxaca.com/). I still have to tweak it a bit. Lets see if anybody wants to donate :-)

Greetings,


Juan Antonio

I like your idea about filters... specially if one would be able to search by IP, and/or certain words, etc. How much would you charge for such an addon to the admin interface?

Like I said, it'd take about four hours (probably way under-estimated ;-) of programming to get this working. I never really did payed programming for Phorum, so I'll tag along with Brian's price of $75 / hour for code released under the Phorum license. That would be $300. If you can raise $250 or more (maybe other Phorum users might want to join in with you) for the "Get the Phorum team to the MySQL conf" fund, I am willing to write the easy message filtering and delete interface.

Hi Maurice:

Well, nobody has donated but I put Google Adsense at the bottom of the page and was able to raise $ 12.73 USD in 14 days. If I do my math correctly, I should be able to get the $ 250.00 in about 270 days. ;-)

So... I guess I'll put up the money and then just keep the ads a whole year to get it back.

How would you like to proceed? Do you have Paypal?

Sincerely yours,
