    That's outside of the scope I intended for this module.

    Right - this would be done as a separate project.

    I've just submitted v1.1.1 of the Access Blocker to the Zen Cart moderators for review; I'll post back here when it's available for download.

    This release corrects the generation of PHP notices when one or more of the submitted form-fields is missing; see GitHub issue #8.

    So I found a list of 249 2-letter country codes, picked 22 countries where I have, or theoretically could, sell product, and then I compiled a comma-delimited list of the remaining 227 countries. I then put this list (AF,AL,DZ,AS,AD,AO,AI,AQ,AG,AR,AM,AW,AZ,...BY...) in the block by country list. I also put in my API and enabled Access Blocker.

    I should also add that previously, as a short-term solution, I had temporarily disabled new account e-mail confirmations, but I still get my copy. I tested this and it is working. Using a real e-mail address, and "Bogus Name," I get my 'shop copy,' but Bogus' email gets nothing. BTW, I also updated the success page so it does say that a confirmation will NOT be coming . . . .

    An hour after I set up Access Blocker, I received another new account notification from an IP address based in a blocked country. I confirmed that Belarus (BY) was indeed on my list, but still this 'Belarusian' bot was able to set up a new account.

    I'm stumped. Have I missed something?

    Do you have the Access Blocker's debug enabled. That will create a month-by-month list of accesses blocked, so you can get a feeling for what's going on.

    What version of Access Blocker and what version of Zen Cart?

    I'm on ZC 1.5.3 and Access Blocker 1.1.1. There is no change at all in volume of new accounts - in fact, it is on the rise. We've gone from 2-3 fake accounts per day to 7-8. I can't see that this mod is doing anything at all. One thought I did have was perhaps it lies with the format of the list. Is it supposed to be AA,AB,AC . . . or with spaces, as in AA, AB, AC, . . . my list has no spaces. I'll try that now while I wait for some hopefully great suggestions, ;)

    Access Blocker, as indicated by its readme, supports Zen Cart 1.5.5 and later. That's due to the additional notifications that are now present in the base Zen Cart, which make this a drop-in plugin.

    What's happening is that while it's listening for create-account, login and contact-us captcha notifications, they're not being issued.

    Argh, that was silly of me. I didn't even look at that. I always resist doing Zen Cart upgrades because the process is so very painful. Each time I complete an upgrade, I vow that I will just migrate to another platform, but then I get on with things, and become complacent until I am faced with the next painful upgrade.
