Hi there.

I would LOVE some help with this.
Especially as Silverstripe has just become a commercial partner with Mollom.

I have downloaded the latest SVN trunk of the Mollom Module, Spam Potrection Module, User Forms Module, and Silverstripe 2.3.1 and have installed everything correctly.

Currently I have got it to the point where the "Spam Protection" option shows on the User Forms API, but when I add it to the form it does not display on the page.
I am aware that Mollom does not show on the form by default but only appears when it detects spam, but I am able to enter spam-like text in the form and it lets it pass.

I would love any help with this as I think it is an awesome and much needed feature!

You don't happen to be logged in do you? If you are logged in it will bypass all the mollom code.

Also make sure you have a valid mollom key entry in your config file

All my tests were while I was signed in and I didn't think to test when i wasn't.

Thank you so much.

Seems to be working well now.

You've been very helpful.
One more question.

Will this module work on 3.0 or only the 2.3 branch?

It will only work on branches/2.3 or tags/2.3.2 when that is released. It will not work on 2.3.1 as it requires an updated userforms which I only works on 2.3.2.

Heh that logged in issue has caught out the best of us. I will add a warning

I'm trying to set up mollom/spam protection modules on my user forms for 2.3.1. All the instructions included seem to be for custom forms.

In which page do I put the mollum and spam protection codes?

I'm trying to set up mollom/spam protection modules on my user forms for 2.3.1....

As I said in my last post - for the best chance of getting mollom / spam protection to work you need to be running userforms 0.2. This in turn requires SilverStripe 2.3.2. User Forms 0.2 will not work on silverstripe 2.3.1.

Ok, I need to upgrade anyway to get the multi-lingual content going. But let me ask a simple question. How do I backup my database when it's already on a live server?

Thanks, this is all new to me.
