I had the same problem and visual confirm solved it because these are usually BOTS registering. I had hundreds of bots registered and it dropped to zero. I still allow guests to post which is another spam issue but I dont have any registered spammers now. I also have the admin panel set to user ema...

I forgot to mention, the majority of spammers are not registering. They are guest spammers. Unfortunately I can not run my website without allowing guests to post so I think I am forced to try the freecap mod at this point.

Several of the finds this MOD uses were removed or changed a lot in 2.0.21.


You should at least update the first page of this topic to link to the lastest version which seemed to work on 2.0.20

try disabling the firefox "remember password" option. That used to cause errors in the past year. Allow the board to remember your password, not firefox. Worth a shot

True, because the MODs are looking for specific lines within the templates. I forgot about the similarity of the templates

Thing is, HTML poses a cerain security risk. In fact, phpBB3 does not have the option to enable HTML at all (although it does have a very nifty custom bbcode system). Phpbb always had an html enable option. In the admin panel is a box that says "enable html". Theres also another line where you can ...

Im curious about this too because my site hits is soley based on the lack of restrictions and HTML is a major part. Im at 2.0.19 now and seeing that 2.0.21 seems to be a major "halt" on html.

The latest updates have been quite hostile to HTML. Perhaps removing the option altogether with this policy to discourage its use in place. Doing so would eliminate 50% of my visitors. I run a site that grows based on its lack of restrictions and Ive always found bbcode to be silly. Im going to eas...

Personally I don't use it. I add MODs (or any code) manually so that I know exactly what's going to be added. EasyMOD will also not be able to edit templates other than subSilver. You should also note that adding a large amount of MODs can make it difficult to update and can easily cause errors in ...
