Re: Any URL means AUTOMATIC registration kill

Yes, no URLs - the simplest solution for my forums. I don't need anything more complicated.

I'll be migrating to punBB 1.3 so I'm not that interested in phpBB mods - just simple quick fixes. But thanks for the link, anyway.

A simple quick fix for older 2.0.1x versions: When I removed the web site URL field from registratation, URL spammers were still registering. These had to be 'bots' that could bypass my registration page. So, I made sure that any registration with a URL was AUTOMATICALLY killed by changing two files...

Any URL means AUTOMATIC registration kill

[ Not BETA - 2.0.10 ? - soon to use punBB 1.3 (vaporware?) ] I went a little further. When I removed the web site URL field from registration, URL spammers were still registering.

In memberlist.php find this: 'WWW_IMG' => $www_img, 'WWW' => $www, and replace with this: 'WWW_IMG' => $posts > 0 ? $www_img : '', 'WWW' => $posts > 0 ? $www : '', Thanks, your solution is simplest to implement and gets at the basic problem with the minimum number of complications. Good work.

Easier said (written) than done. I still prefer a code fix. There is no Firefox "disable auto-login" in the Firefox menu system and the Firefox URL about:config is not exactly user-friendly either. I might be able to cruise the Net to find a way to disable the auto-login problem in Firefox...

That's enough for me.

Your code snippet ... ?

If the problem is infrequent, why not just go into your http://{yourDomainHere}.com/cpanel and click on "IP Deny Manager"?

You will find this in the 2.0.11 version of this forum, but it's been packed with it since version 2.0.6.


Okay, where is it in 2.0.8 (updated with security patches)?

Disable Firefox-only autofill: username/pass login page

http://mylvn.com/forums/login.php This is odd (it did not happen on this forum.) Whenever I go to the login page, a username and password are automatically filled in. Since I use a few different usernames, this can be quite annoying. This seems to only happen in Firefox (not MS IE6). When I clear th...

I expected it should be easy. I just thought that someone knew off the top of the head where to make the changes rather than have me digging around the code. Here's the easy solution (just add the two new variables as shown, 3/4 of the way down in the includes/page_header.php): $template->assign_var...
