Too much spam from abroad? Restrict uploading ads to countries of your choice!
I'm sure that a lot of you got the same problem with spam and useless postings from abroad, as this is a general problem for free classifieds websites.
I created a modification to get rid of that annoying spam. So what does my modification (including a plugin) do?
the countries that are allowed to post ads on your site. All other countries can use and see everything on your site, but they can not
post an ad! You can even let them register, but they still can not post ads. Or you decide that they can not even register. If they click on a area or button that you restrict, they will get something like:
we’re sorry, uploading ads on this-site.com is only restricted to residents from XYZ
But not only this, let's turn it around: You can allow all countries to use your site, but disallow one or more specific countries. That means, you can ban countries of your choice to do something.
You wan't more? How about (just a sample): Visitors from US, England, Germany can see header logo "A" while visitors from the rest of the world see header logo "B"
I'm doing this Modification for my own site because i want a local classifieds website. But if i see that some of you are interested, i will sell it for a small amount.
I'm still testing the mod to get it complete. But maybe you like to see it in action: www.cytaweb.com/magenta
If you are not located in Cyprus
and try to click on "Post an Ad" : see what you get. At the moment i just implemented this to "Post an Ad"
Let me know if this is interesting for you.
