How to disable Discourse Anti-Spam system for a while?


(Khoa Nguyen) #1

I’m a noobs in Ruby so I want to create a Facebook Group importer via Discourse API with PHP. But discourse anti-spam system make my script failed. It flagged all the new post make by my script.
Any solution with this ?

Sure, check the spam section of admin / site settings and increase the values there or disable options as needed.

Could he whitelist his IP to get around them too? Or does that not apply?

That’s also a good idea! Go to admin, logs, screened IPs and explicitly allow the IPs you want.

@cpradio @codinghorror That’s great. Thanks you guys. And a small break time between each comment (5 secs) really help. Discourse Anti-spam system is great. It can detect many spam comment that I can’t detect it myself on FB group
