Hello.

Recently we have been bombarded with chinese and russian spam ads all over. And also with some legit ads with arabian or other on-english language characters.

Is there a way to only allow english in ads?

Thanks

Hello.

There is no such feature in Osclass script.

But there is a way to do that with success, using the antispam protection plugin. You install it and put some characters from languages you do not want in the filter, like for example "ä" or "ü" or other russian or arab ir chinese characters.

That will not work with languages that are not english but use english set like italian for example. Still this little trick blocks most of the spam (if not all) and give you much less work to do with administration.

Also set the plugin to delete the spam automatically after some days (a week or so).

I hope this works for you. If not, feel free to post your problem with it and we will check it out.

What you can do is to examine carefully the spam ads posted and see their "pattern".

And filter accordingly. Not only characters but words also. Just tune right the plugin, the option to filter "contain" or "exact words" is very important.
