I was using the Q&A captcha on mine until last night, when I switched to reCaptcha. Can switch back to Q&A if you want to run any tests?

Re: Spam Bots Attacking! Please Help!

I've been running with Q&A for nearly a year and I have administrative activation. The questions I have are very specific to my niche interest group and can only be answered by careful reading of the site. In the last 3 weeks the number of attempted spam sign-ups has rocketed. Occam's razor says th...

Re: Spam Bots Attacking! Please Help!

I have been getting a sudden huge surge in spambot attacks in the past 48 hours too - and it's specifically my phpBB board that is being targeted despite there being other parts of the site that are potentially vulnerable to spambots, such as a Wordpress blog. None of them have actually been able to...

Let me know if it works.
Tried it just now. Seems to do the trick. Thanks. :)

Re: Show First Post Only to Guest

I think it's probably because of other MODs on viewtopic_body.html - there seems to be quite a lot going on before <!-- END postrow -->. Maybe I need to put the edit higher up within that loop? No, i don't think this is the problem, anyway post here ur viewtopic_body.html but before check your view...

Re: Show First Post Only to Guest

Excellent idea for a MOD, but I'm afraid it's not quite working right for me. The "login or register" message shows after the first post for guests... but then all the rest of the posts of the thread appear below that, still completely visible to guests. :? I think it's probably because of other MOD...

Re: [BETA] Wall

nice supaj, thanks for the addition. We may need to release a new mod with credit to this one and our collaborated modifications. Seems that most of the support has disappeared here. Ive had about 10 people in the past week ask me howto custom profile page lol. Maybe linking mine publicly here was ...

I don't understand why they still haven't fixed this properly yet. It's not as bad as it used to be - but there's still a long way to go IMO.

Re: [BETA] Advanced PayPal Donation MOD 1.0.B4

I'm getting the "no exchange data" error for the first time today. I know people have reported a problem with it in the past - are people any closer to knowing what causes it?

Re: [REQUEST] Auto Media Embedding MOD

Somebody did actually start making one of these, even got as far as RC stage:

http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 0&t=739345

And then... nothing. You can't download it and the author seems to have abandoned the MOD. Shame, as it looked pretty good to me. :(

Re: Spammers.

Worth noting in 3.0.3 we introduced a new setting which automatically puts users posts on the moderation queue if they have less than a definable number. I think the visual captcha has been broken - I have spotted several spambot registrations over the past few days. None of them had posted yet but...

Re: [RC1] Prime Links - Classify Locals & Target Externals

Hi. This is a great mod that has really improved my boards. I have one problem though and I'm told prime links can help. I just don't know how yet. The admin of another forum likes to troll my site and post spam about his forum. Is there some way that I can redirect or restrict a link to a specific...

Re: ACP "delete install folder" warning - but no install folder

It's OK, I've now resolved this. Oddly there was an install folder there, it just wasn't showing up in my FTP client (Filezilla) even when I had refreshed. But having closed Filezilla and re-opened it, there was an install folder, which has now been removed. Even odder is that the board was still ac...
