StopForumSpam Mod for YaBB 2.6.11/2.6.12
Original Mod by Derek Barnstorm

Version 0.8

This Mod will allow you to check the database for Usernames, Email Addresses and IP Addresses on registration, guest posting, broadcast message, alert moderator and send topic.
You can also allow Administrators to submit details to the database when spammers get through who haven't already been submitted (you will need an API Key from their website for the submit feature to work).

1) Modify YaBB files using BoardMod or manually.
2) Upload modified files to your server in ASCII mode.
3) Upload and StopForumSpam.lng to their relevant directories in ASCII mode.
4) Upload sfs.png to yabbfiles/Modfiles in binary mode.
5) Go to Admin Center -> Antispam Settings -> StopForumSpam to configure the settings.
