i installed spamprotection module and mollom module.

i insert this lines into my


and i updated the keys with my keys.

sooo.. in the video there is a "Spam Protection" field to add a spamprotection field. but at my form, there is not such a field. how can i add this?


when i write a comment on a page, there does not be a spamprotector too.


in my CMS, there is the "Report" Tab and this works


How can I see "spamprotection" module is correctly installed?

Hi there
I got SilverStripe, Mollom, Spamprotection & the userforms to run together like the video, but it was all in vain because the blog module wouldn't co-operate (blank page at the front-end). We'd to ditch SilverStripe as a result... real shame.

Anyway, you can see my post here explaining how to get your modules going...

Basically, you need to get the beta version of Silverstripe & daily builds of the other modules. I obtained daily builds via some URL manipulation... I couldn't find any other documented way to get them.

1. Goto

2. To get daily builds of the other modules, replace "spamprotection" with "mollom", "userforms" etc.

3. Unzip & rename the module folders.

4. Put them in place on your web server.

5. Do your /dev/build

6. Create your user form with the spam protector field as per the video.

7. Save & publish, then log out of the CRM.

Best of luck!
Ooo - to test mollom's working ok, see
Remember to make sure you're logged-out of the CRM, or you'll not see your captcha on your userform.

We are about to release the new version of the user forms module which will have the support for mollom spam fields out of the box (provided you have spamprotection and mollom installed).

And yes watch out for the Logged in user doesn't show captcha field 'feature' :D

thanx for suggestions.
I have followed them closely, and was able to dev/build?flush=1 with no problem.
have created a new userform from scratch and added the spamprotection element too.
when i signed off and tried to open the page with that userform, i only got white page..

any ideas what could go wrong ?

SS 2.3.2
Userforms, spamprotection and mollom - all daily builds
