  • [Forum] Email notification of edited posts

    I am finding that many spammers are now writing legitimate posts, which pass our human review of them (we setup email notification on all posts). However, they edit the post a month later with spam text and links.

    How can I setup the system to email us when a post is edited?

    Sorry, there is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at www.vbulletin.org.

      Bummer...

      Is there any other way to catch these? Our manually searches for them right now are painfull to say the least.

          I can't be the only forum admin that is seeing this new spam tactic. Are there any 3rd party solutions?

          Any idea if this would help the problem? http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=230921

            Sorry I really don't have any experience with that or any add-on. You should ask over at vbulletin.org

              Thanks anyhow...


              With all of this spam, I might just take my forums down or switch to different software.
