hi there :)
I am a noob when it comes to installing mods.
Now that Ive confessed my noobishness, on to the main question..

I am unable to find the
"Thats All Folks"
in the
language/lang_englisj/lang_main.php
#
#-----[ OPEN ]------------------------------------------
#

language/lang_english/lang_main.php

#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------
#

//
// That's all, Folks!
// -------------------------------------------------

#
#-----[ BEFORE, ADD ]------------------------------------------
#

// Stop Spambot Registration MOD
$lang['Spambot_registration_attempt'] = 'Spambot Registration Attempt';
$lang['Spambot_message'] = '<b>IMPORTANT: leave the Profile Information blank!</b>';
$lang['Spambot_message_explain'] = 'Do <b>not</b> fill in any of the following Profile Information fields, else it will cause the registration process to fail. This is for security purposes; it prevents automatic sign-up robots (spambots) from registering, because they always fill in some of the fields.<br /><br /><b>Note:</b> you can still provide Profile Information after your account has been created.';
Is there an alternate wording that I am missing?

I don't know if this has been answered, I am in a time crunch today and read abot 5 pages of the 24 on this thread, so I apologize if it has been (just let me know and I'll go looking!)

I got an error when clicking on "Profile" on my forum. Said there was an unexpected $ on line 1158 of includes/usercp_register

Well I looked at the file and on like 1158 the only code was ?>
Soooo, I took out the only mod that was in there - the spam blocker, and that seemed to fix it. Is this just an error on my part, or was there a bug I missed?

If I can get the spam blocker and the profiles to work this will be the greatest mod! Some weeks I used to get 10 spammers a day, but my site averaged about 4-5 a day. This mod has been great (well minus the profiles not working... :? but I have a feeling that's I'm to blame)!

Question:

for some reasons I only want to do just one part of your mod I mean I just want to modify

Code: Select all

includes/usercp_register.php
and keep other files untouched!

Will that cause problem with real humans? this mod won't work?

Need a little help...

New users can register successfully on the forum I'm administering... but for some odd reason, when an admin goes to User Administration to activate the account, the admin receives this error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: mkrealdate() in /home/sipofper/public_html/forum/admin/admin_users.php on line 266
Can someone give me a little help?

Hi folks.

After using it for 8 months, without gettin´any of this bots registered,tough in the last 48h 2 new bots seemed to break the mod.

Bad news, as I think news bots have been created that actually can pass through this...

You can add another anti-spambots mod like The Humanizer or Textual Confirmation and it will finish with bots. I have installed both. If you want, you can see here in my board - http://wasteland-bg.com/
I don't have bot registrations more from 9 months. :D

Yes, some bots can get through, and adding another MOD may stop them all. I installing the MOD Better captcha next to this MOD. I haven't had any spambot registrations since then (Nov. 2006). Oh, what a relief! :D
