English file for translations is attached. If anyone wishes to translate and upload it that would be great.
This is a free host and sometimes it shows issues for uploading in which case just use Tiny Upload as it is safe and easy for basic file sharing.

nice site  :)

I got an error with this

Apply Filter: Only show the error messages of this URL

Apply Filter: Only show the errors with the same message
Spam Blocker - SFS connection failure [IP/Email]

may be this is the reason why my site doesn't send mail notification even activation mails to new members.
I didn't touch anything on this mod, only I added IPs on whitelist.

You can disable any email checks within the mod settings to see if it fixes the issue.
On the SB admin page does it state that your SFS login & p/w is valid?

The mod should allow your forum to function properly even if it does not get a connection with SFS.
It just puts the notification in your log because you have it set to do so (which can be disabled).

Either their site is having issues or your API key is invalid.
Keep in mind that you are supposed to only use 1 key per site that is registered with them else they will disable said key.
