SpamBot Buster

SpamBot Buster
Are you getting bombarded with spam messages via your OpenCart Contact Us page?

Or are you receiving more and more fake account registrations on your OpenCart site?

If the answer to above questions is yes then you might be targeted by spambots visiting your OpenCart site.

You can now stop these bad fellows with our new SpamBot Buster tool!


What it does

The SpamBot Buster offers protection for the following pages:
  • Contact Us
  • Account Registration
  • Checkout Registration
  • Checkout Guest
  • Affiliate Registration
  • Product Returns
  • Product Review
  • Forgotten Password
  • Reset Password

It uses a special invisible honeypot trap field to catch spambots whenever one of the above listed forms is submitted.

It can also check for some required mouse/touch/keyboard events which spambots, unlike humans, usually fail to trigger when posting a form.

Future spambot requests coming to your OpenCart server from the same IP-address can optionally be blocked, too, either permanently or for the initial session only.


Requirements

This OpenCart extension does not modify any OpenCart core files. No XML-based modifications systems like OCmod or VQmod are needed. It only uses event handlers.


Installation

  1. Go the Extensions > Installer and upload our *.ocmod.zip file
  2. Go to Extensions > Extensions > Modules > MHC Web Design - Spambot Buster to install and to configure this module
  3. Go to System > Users > User Groups > edit Administrator and make sure to set the 'access' and 'modify' rights for 'extension/module/spambot_buster' and 'extension/spambot'

That's it!


Upgrade from a previous Spambot Buster release (OpenCart 3.x)

  1. Go to Extensions > Installer and delete the old ocmod.zip file
  2. Go to Extensions > Installer and upload our new ocmod.zip file
  3. Go to Extensions > Extensions > Modules > MHC Web Design - Spambot Buster to edit and re-save this module
  4. Go to the Dashboard Developer Settings (top right button) and do a Theme refresh


Upgrade from a previous Spambot Buster release (OpenCart 2.3.0.x)

  1. Go to Extensions > Installer to upload this new ocmod.zip file
  2. Go to Extensions > Extensions > Modules > MHC Web Design - Spambot Buster to edit and re-save this module


Further help and customized versions

This extension has been successfully tested for the standard OpenCart 2.3.0.2 and 3.0.3.2 releases. It should also work for other OpenCart 2.3.0.x and 3.0.x versions.

Most of the standard-compliant web themes for above OpenCart releases should be fine for this OpenCart extension. Note: It may not always work with the Journal3 "theme", because the latter differs from OpenCart standards, but we are usually able to adjust the SpamBot Buster tool accordingly!

If you need a customized version of this extension, let us know and we can create one for a charge.
