Re: [Beta] Textual Confirmation

By this mod, there is no penalty either.

There is no new work on this mod. However, it works perfectly for my forums and for the wordpress blog.

Re: [Beta] Textual Confirmation

Please don't fool us! I suspect that you think that "olpa" and "triplewashed" are the same person? No, it isn't. Sorry but you passed the train... Just opposite. I started this train ("textual confirmation"), and my tools are still ahead of alternatives. There are already other MODs about a textual...

Re: [Beta] Textual Confirmation

Thanks for the report! ...users that don't enable cookies... Inconceivable! In the year 2009. To fix this, I decided to enable it for new registrations only as that's really where we needed the protection. Yes, this is a good solution. A spam bot could run through the entire dictionary if it had the...

Re: [14/12/06] Textual Confirmation

Yes, the MOD works perfectly with phpBB 2.0.23. I'd recommend to re-check once more the changes in the file "includes/usercp_register.php". Very often, the curly braces cause confusion: http://bbantispam.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=181 If anyway no luck, use Advanced Textual Confirmation instead (reco...

Re: [14/12/06] Textual Confirmation

Could this MOD simply reject those spam registration and don't leave anything in the memberlist?
Simply reject -- it's exactly what the MOD does. If you get spammers in the memberlist, something is wrong. Try to change the default questions to custome ones.

Re: [14/12/06] Textual Confirmation

Hello elks, make sure that the file "...phpbb path.../includes/constants.php" is changed as described in the installation instructions: # #-----[ OPEN ]------------------------------------------ # includes/constants.php # #-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------ # define('SMILIES_TAB...

Re: [14/12/06] Textual Confirmation

buckyjunior, thanks for the notes and suggestions! Olpa, if this reference is in the install instructions, I missed it entirely. For future users, would you consider adding that db_update script to your installation? Bad usability of installation process makes me sad, but I'm not going to fix it: ph...

Re: Anti-Spam Thread!

Dog Cow, you are completely right that making forum unique is a good anti-spam technique. But I'm not sure that changing the messages makes forum unique: If I were a spam bot developers, I'd parse the messages only as a second resort. Instead, I'd use internal IDs of input fields. And I'm sure that ...

Yes. Textual Confirmation MOD asks one question, randomly selecting it from the set of them.

Re: [14/12/06] Textual Confirmation

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_IF, expecting ')' in /home/username/public_html/forum/includes/usercp_register.php on line 1154
It means the code was changed incorrectly. Please restore the the original file "usercp_register.php", and repeat the changes very attentive.

Re: [14/12/06] Textual Confirmation

I've downloaded the vanilla phpBB 2.0.23, and the file "templates/subSilver/profile_add_body.tpl" does contain the string "<!-- END switch_confirm -->".

Very easy: earlier or later, any connected computer becomes a member of a botnet. Even if the owner believes he is a cool antihacker.
