The Stop Spammer mod can be used on a Simple Machines Forum (SMF) site in conjuction with the httpBL mod to deny spammers access to a forum. The package uses the Stop Forum Spam site's database of spammers, which tracks IP addreses, email addresses and usernames used by forum spammers.
To use the package, you need to obtain an API key from the Stop Forum Spam site; you will provide that key at the settings page for the mod once you have installed the package. You can view your keys at the Stop Forum Spam API Keys page.
When you install the package, you can choose to install it for some or all
of the themes installed on the site. During the installation, the following
three files will be installed in the
images/icons/ directory for
the themes that you choose during the Stop Spammer mod installation:

You can get to the setings page for the package by putting
index.php?action=admin;area=regcenter;sa=settings at the end
of the URL for the forum.
