This. iconv was used to deal with special characters in usernames in conjunction with the urlencode.
Not 100% certain the following will work but you could try replacing
$nm = urlencode(iconv($this->settings['gb_char_set'], "UTF-8", $member['members_display_name']));
$em = urlencode(iconv($this->settings['gb_char_set'], "UTF-8", $member['email']));
$nm = urlencode($member['members_display_name']);
$em = urlencode($member['email']);
Not sure it will work and if your members have special characters in their name it could also cause a problem.
So due to some major health concerns, some paying code work and then piling Red Hat and Cisco training on top of an already packed family life I apparently missed the window to move this file to a new category. It no longer shows up when searched for, not in my profile, cant click the link in the first post here, etc. Ill have to re-upload I assume and then I can look at what is causing the errors. It needs a bit of a rewrite anyhow but I just havent had time.
I havent looked into project honeypot but suppose it really wouldnt be an issue to add it. Been busy with some paid work lately but will see if I can swing back around to this.
SFS will not accept a submission that doesnt include an API so thats why you are not seeing any numbers increasing on there side. I may have not put a check in for that so even tho it appears to be submitting its not because the API key is missing, Ill have to look into that as well.
I can think of no other thing that would be causing it to not work if all settings are correct in the app settings. I use the same version available here on my live site (not a dev version) and it has blocking at least a few spammers day. I assume the rate check in the SFS stats is working and reporting back.
The .org is not a typo as far as the mirror goes. The first time I mentioned the www vs the us I did typo it.
Only change it at this line.
The rest of the instances are just the links to the results that come in the email. The .org mirror is an api server only so if you changed those, clicking the links would take you to a server that had nothing for you to see.
