Question Pass IP of banned user with NO POSTINGS to Stopforumspan?

Hello all,

On our forum we are getting a vast amount of fake registrations. Most of these users never post anything, but in their signature they refer to commercial websites (HP Printer Support / Essay writing service / etc)

I've signed up to Stopforumspam some years ago and activated the function in Kunena.
If I ban a member without postings, but with a spam signature I get the message "The report can't be sent because no IP given". When the user did make a post I get a confirmation he has been reported to the Stopforumspam DB.

Is it possible that upon banning a user without a post the registration IP address is passed on to Stopforumspam also? Sometimes the spammers are smart and even wait a few days after registration and then add the commercial info into the signature of the profile.....

Kunena does not have her own registration, it's only a redirect to the Joomla registration. So far as I know, Joomla does not store the IPs of new users.

Thanks for the info.

I thought I saw the IP logging somwhere in the Kunena configuration, but was about the logging of postings, not the registration.

I will first find out if IP logging of registrations is possible. If so, then it might be an option to consider. if not, than it's a long route.

Maybe you find here an extension. extensions.joomla.org/instant-search/?je...query%5D=IP%20Logger
But you will never prevent real spam users when registration is allowed. I know the tricks of the spam users, and they are a lot, but the IPs are rarely the same.
