I am new with b2evolution.
I found this project accidently via Wikipedia. b2evolution looks interesting and promising.
It seems b2e would have "nearly everything" what I am looking for - out of the box! :)
Thanks for this application!

But I got concerned when reading this: http://b2evolution.net/about/terms-of-service

Now, before I start investing time with this app, I would like to know if it is possible to "switch off":

  • centralized antispam
    and
  • pinging e2evolution.net

If there is no "out of the box" "Off switch", where does the code need to be modified to remove these commands?

Background:
We are using Bot-Trap and CrawlTrack to protect our pages and I want to use these tools with b2evolution as well.
And I would like to avoid "b2evolution" analysing our website traffic. I assume your access.log is huge :D

In case I see or understand upper functions wrong. Then pls correct me.

Greetings from warm and sunny Finland!

I think you understand the functions wrong:

  • Centralized antispam allows you to obtain a black list of keywords to use from our servers. You don't have to download that list from us. By default it gets downloaded ever day. There is a scheduled task you can turn off.
  • pinging b2evolution.net asks b2evolution.net every 12 hours or so if there is a software update available. If there is a security issue it will display a red warning on your admin console.

None of these features analyses your traffic. None of these features fires on every request.

Thanks for clarification!
This sounds good now. :)

Do you want to change status from "Community" to "Public" - I'm sure this is interesting for non registered readers as well.
