once again... Albert, if you need any assistance creating a simple ACP option to change the value let me know


I'd be interested in doing this if I wasn't already so busy (sounds like fun though)! :)

@Albert Wiersch 2: can you please open a topic in the mod DEV forum so you can point users to that topic? ( and provide support over there instead of on this topic? )


OK... I hope this will work:

[RC1] myVIPcode - fight spam registrations

I was given permission by the author to distribute this mod. I am not the author. It's a great mod to stop spam registrations. It's great because it is so simple and small yet extremely effective. The actual MOD author is Martin Aignesberger, http://www.aignes.com Basically, it requires users to ent...

Re: How about nofollow?

i dont know why you think that. all dr*g postings are by machines and they also deposit a website that then gets spidered. this is extremely harmful to you site !!! Because instant delete of users may end up deleting a legitimate user... perhaps someone complaining of porn or someone posting someth...

Re: Help much appreciated

Oops, I had changed the file but forgot to save it. Next question: do I just change your "2468" in "includes/usercp_register.php" to get it to work or is there more to it I would recommend changing "2468" to whatever you want but you don't HAVE to. After that, you need to put the VIP code on your s...

templates/subSilver/profile_add_body.tpl

or, maybe you are using a different theme other than subSilver and so you would need to edit the correct file for the theme you're using.

Re: VIP Code

No sign of it. I'm a 69 year old web idiot so please go easy on me. Here's my url: http://www.newtonhill.org.uk/phpbb/profile.php?mode=register&agreed=true It should be there. You probably didn't install the mod properly. Make sure everything has been correctly installed. Of course you'll also need...

On the register page it will be one of the fields, just below the visual confirmation if you have that enabled.

It makes it a bit more hassle for real people. I think it is unnecessary so why make it unnecessarily more difficult for users to register?

Besides, it wasn't doing me much good anyway.

I'll let you know how it works.

Thanks

OK.... I've had enough... :? I just upgraded to 2.0.21 and I'm still getting spammers. I get both bots and humans. I am spending considerable time removing these. Our BB does not have a lot of new members, if we got one new member a month, that would be the most. With that in mind, before upgrading...

This thread ought to be a sticky. Yes, this is a great thread. Spamming is a big problem. Marshalrusty , thanks for making the mod more compliant, although the changes significantly increase the size of the mod. I will just leave it the way it is as it's not really mine to change anyway.
