  • What is the vBulletin Anti-Spam service key

    Can anyone tell me what the vBulletin Anti-Spam service key code is
    We are having spamming issues so I have gone through the settings in admin control under*VBulletin Options there is a*spam management setting group in there it askes for a*vBulletin Anti-Spam Key
    this is exactly what is next to the key box where the key code has to be entered

    "vBulletin Anti-Spam Key
    Enter a vBulletin Anti-Spam service key to enable scanning of user data where supported"

    Can you please tell me what this key is so I can enable the spam management.

    Thanks in advance

    It's explained in the option above:

    "Anti-Spam Service
    Controls the service that is used for scanning supported data. The corresponding API key for the service has to be entered."

    Currently you can choose between Akismet or Typepad AntiSpam. These are paid services for most users.

    Have a look at this topic for more anti-spam techniques.

        FYI - not paid services... FREE! At least, TypePad is for sure... I believe the other one is also free. But, I recommend TP, that's what I use anyways. Free.
