SPAM rating
« on: January 20, 2008, 03:36:48 pm »

Guests can rate pictures on my gallery. Apparently, some SPAM bot is rating my pictures. Is there a way to stop that bot? Or do I have to disable "guests can rate pictures"

You can find my album @ http://album.jochus.be ...

That only works for comments, not for rating ... :-(

My bad ;) not awake enough i guess. yes Captcha does not do rating but i have not heard of a bot doing that before so i suggest you indeed disable the guest rating option and include all the people you do want to be able to rate into the registered users group.

It has been discussed before actually. If it's a well behaved crawler as opposed to a spam bot then you can add an exclusion into robots.txt for ratepic.php. Check your server access logs to see what it is.

Log mode is on "everything", but the only thing I see is this:

Server access logs, not Coppermine logs.
