I prefer Cracker Tracker Professional 2nd Edition

I would strongly
recommend not following this advise. We took that MOD apart edit by edit some time ago and found a number of issues, some of which have already been fixed, some of which still exist.
The additions to search.php an usercp_register.php are useless as flood protection is now included by default. The MOD claims to increase security, but SPAM is not a security issue to begin with. Install at your own risk, and don't blame anyone but yourself if it doesn't work.
This has been posted ad nauseum, but I'll say it again: there is a big difference between security and SPAM
. If you see a MOD that claims to increase security, be very very sceptical.
EDIT: And some of the code is now out of date.
I chose to modify the files as per Marshalrusty's suggestions for the VIP mod. I think it went fine, but... I feel like an idiot. The user reg page looks good, and points the person registering to the page where I will put the code. But where do I configure the board with the code I selected? Is there supposed to be an option on the config file page now where I could insert it? I have no idea.
You can stick it anywhere you like. You could even make a locked forum called "VIP code can be found here" with the VIP code in the description. Also note that I never suggested any of the MODs, although I also never said anything bad about this one

what do you recommend then for automatic posters that allways leave p*rn URL's as their websites ?
its not the messages that are a problem it is the posting of websites with illegal content. to which u then link..
See the first post in this thread. If the built in features aren't doing enough, consider one or two of the MOD listed. Each is good in its own way. You should focus on stopping these bots from registering in the first place, not from posting.
