Re: Anti-Bot Question

1) Go to your ACP 2) Chose User Registration Settings Image1.jpg 3) Then choose Captcha Module Settings Image2.jpg 4) In the drop down box, set it to Q&A Captcha and configure the questions. It might be grayed out, but will work in 3.07. Didn't try 3.06 Image3.jpg No need to keep original anti-bot m...

Re: Anti-Bot Question

Could it be possible to have an image shown as the question with the question on it and still have the answer box to be filled out? The image could have anything as its background as long as a human can read it, it could even just be distoted a little. Yes. If you know enough HTML to add an image, ...

Re: Anti-Bot Question & 3.07PL1

Just FYI - I don't think this mod is needed if you're on 3.06 or newer as the forum software now incorporates the custom questions. But, if you are like me and had it in place prior and are too lazy to drop it, I just did the 3.07 update, using changed files, and there were no questions about file m...

Re: Anti-Bot Question

FInally got around to doing the update with anti-bot mod in place. As you guys said, it seemed to work fine. I just allowed the files to merge automatically. I see that there is a Q&A Captcha question, but haven't tried it out yet. If I still had my other boards with the anti-bot mod, I would simply...

Re: Anti-Bot Question

So should I or do I need to remove this mod before updating to 3.06? Ive updated my board from 3.0.5 -> 3.0.6 and the mod is still working great 8-) For the last update, I recall having to update two of the anti-bot modded files manually. At least my notes to myself that I posted to the moderators ...

Re: How to notify an email list on new posts in thread

It's a scheduling thread, Someone posts a event and others on the list are notified. The thread archives things which email doesn't. Also, some people can't get email at work or refuse to get it at a hotspot but will access the forum at one. Anyway, it was requested by the email group leader of me.

How to notify an email list on new posts in thread

I first created the email list with only myself on it and registered as a user. Then I started a thread and set the appropriate UCP settings so the list would be notified on new posts. I've now filled out the email list with the rest of the addresses. I do trust everyone on the email list. They are ...

Re: Preventing Spam in 3.0 [*Read First Post*]

Rather than using a drop-down box you should use a text-box, this way there could be millions of combinations for the answer. That's what I do, but it requires a mod. The text questions available for custom profiles have no mechanism to flag a wrong answer, from what I've seen. You could use the nu...

Re: Preventing Spam in 3.0 [*Read First Post*]

But it goes back to my original question -- if the 2 required questions added are not listed on registration, then it doesn't matter. The spambots or legitimate user don't see it so don't answer it.... Post Editted: I found the same problem with the forum only showing one custom profile question. I...

Re: Anti-Bot Question

Staying on that tangent, what would be wrong with using the same database for a conversion? You would have an extra forum there wasting space, but are there other issues? I tried it twice myself, using a very tiny forum, and I found that I lost my phpBB3 admin login when I did the conversion both ti...

Re: Preventing Spam in 3.0 [*Read First Post*]

I have set up a custom question, and there is just a box too type in the answer. even if i type in the wrong answer, the sign up goes through, so the spam bots are still registering. about 50 of them per day. its starting too get tiresome now. The drop down method, as described in this link, worked...

Re: Anti-Bot Question

It's safe to assume that anyone who has CONVERTED from 2.x.x to 3.xx. will have two config tables right? One from 2.x.x which would be phpbb_config and one from 3.x.x. which would be phpbb_ 3 config, correct? . I do not believe that is correct. The database prefix will be what you chose, but the ta...

Re: View emails of all members in ACP

Oh well. It turns out that the starfox admin tools, while they may not be able to edit the 3.0 database, still can display users by email.
