Client Management: Client Groups - Hannes - Feb 7th, 2011

Hi Ben,

for editing user privileges it would make things much easier to have a group function, to automatically give certain priviliges to a newly added user.

Cheers,
Hannes

Hi Hannes,

I totally agree. Revamping the account levels is going to happen eventually, but not in 2.1, I'm afraid.

It's a pretty huge job: the account levels and permissions permeate the whole script.

But I do appreciate you bringing it up! Always good to know what's needed. Smile

Hey Argen,

You can assign client privileges however they are not group privileges.

Cheers,

Joe

Dear All,

I've installed FormTools several months ago, and it runs smooth !
Now some stupid person has found a way to spam the contest (where we use the formtool for).

We filter on unique email, but he keeps entering/spamming the contest with unique emailaddresses from the same domain and within the same IP number.

I've been looking for it in the tuts and this forum, but have not found the right solution.

Is there a way to blacklist a certain IP, or perhaps limit form submissions to 1 entry per IP ?


RE: Client Management: Client Groups - nelsondcosta - Sep 20th, 2017

Yes there is a module you can block IP's


RE: Client Management: Client Groups - alexh - Sep 20th, 2017

I believe the module only deals with IP security upon logging in, not submissions of external forms.

True Sad

So you can block using the firewall, which is SO u use?

Hey Atifreref,

Sorry to hear that! Yeah, this is something that I've heard from other people too. Once Form Tools 3 is more stable and I have less grunt work to complete (updating the modules, etc), I'll work on a new module for helping with spam.

In the meantime, have you looked at the Form Tools API at all? (https://docs.formtools.org/api/) There's a captcha option available there to help fight spam. I won't fib - I'm playing catchup with this script myself (!) having been away from it for so long, but I believe the recaptcha feature is still working fine. https://docs.formtools.org/api/ft_api_display_captcha/

Anyway, all the best -

Ben
