Hi,

To be honest, with so many forums, I don't really know if this is the right one for my question.
Having said that:

I'm using RN 2.10 and I wanted to know how I can see the Ip's from visitors/bots that are spamming my site using the submit news option.
I could make this available only for members but I want to leave this acessible to all (members and visitors) but I need to know how I can see the IP's of someone who submited certain articles so I can IP Ban them.

Thanks in advance!

It is possible track IP's in Sentinel, that should tell you who submitted the article.

If they are spamming a particular subject, i.e certain drugs you could add the name of the drug into Sentinels string blocker so it blocks them automatically.

P.S. I've moved this to the phpnuke security forum, as it is kinda related. Wink

banzai, in addition, RavenNuke 2.10.01 comes with what I call a "spam captcha". See your rnconfig.php. You can still have the news open to all, but require a captcha. That might stop the majority of them from getting in.
