Re: How to get an API Key?

Hi Nacto, welcome to SFS.

(forgive me if I sound bored - having to repeat this message is getting boring for me) (not your fault)

You do NOT need an API key to use the DB, only to report spammers. At this moment, the latter (reporting) has been disabled for new users, due to abuse. Apparently, there is zero information to explain this at the point.

Re: How to get an API Key?

You can get the Mybb here:
http://www.stopforumspam.com/contributions , I don' think you have to log in, but if you log in, (sign in),
and you had to , to post here,.. then you should also be able to get a API key here:
http://www.stopforumspam.com/signup
However, ok  you can not, at this time., but note what it says,

Due to some issues with abuse, new keys are offline for the time being. Sorry about that

You do not need an key in order to use the API to protect your site. You only need a key to submit data.

You DO NOT NEED,  a API key, to protect your site.  This means, the MYBB plugin, should work with out the API key,.

Hope this helps, and welcome to the forum

Ah, I'm wrong. Thanks Garry.

Re: How to get an API Key?

I don't remember which post off hand, nor specificaly what anti spam plug in was being used , but some of the
"confusion" was because the plugging dose, have a place, where one is asked to enter the API key, so it can use some sort of "automatic" reporting,..I guess,..I can see where that would lead to problems,  so any way, the response, had been
to just leave that blank, and the pluggin should still work,..

From the dates on the posts, it looks like an answer to this would be of historical interest only...

Exactly,....""2013-03-09 7:44 am""
And now, thinking about it, I don't remember any more , what exactly it was at that time,......
Browsing the forum, and look at some of the older posts, might reveal something.

Seems like it was related to this : http://www.stopforumspam.com/forum/view … 931#p37931

Re: How to get an API Key?

Hello, I'm not sure how to get an API key with the formular. There is only a field for the name and the website, but when accepting the rules an error message appears: Fehlerhafte Eingabe des Sicherungscodes (Incorrect input of the security code). I don't see any possibility for inserting a security code.
