Interested in development?
- Initial version
- Fixed bugs in saving settings.
- Added message field name to change which field is filtered in the contact form 7 form.
- Changed filter to work in the skip_mail filter rather than the before send action because in before send the skip_mail property has been made private so we can’t set it if needs be
- Checks for blank messages and counts as spam if found. This is because spammers are now putting their message into the subject and leaving the message blank
- We were filter_santizing_string’ing the CF7 message before counting links. The problem is that if there are spammy links like example then the filter_var removes those and they’re not counted (not present)
- Added an icon to the assets directory
- Added an icon to the assets directory and fixed a typo
- removed assets directory incorrectly placed in trunk
- Added block email addresses (in addition to blocked words and block name fields)
- Added in option to send blocked messages to dnsbl.softsmart.co.za for review and addition into that block list
- Code review and tyding up (escaping output / santizing input, code sniffer etc)
