Using Athena Style NOT SubSilver

Post by texaspepper »

I am using Athena Style on my board

Question: Editing templates/subSilver/profile_add_body.tpl
In Athena I do not find lines mentioned in the install.txt.

Do I edit subSilver and this will make the Athena style work and stop bots?

Today 25 bots for my forum. None of them uses the fields this mod wants empty.
Lucky you, my friends! :)

If I think that it would be enough a simply question/answer to defeat the bots forever...and there is not a mod like this...:)

Yes there is, it's called the humanizer, but it doesn't work. Upon registration, it asks if you are human using a radio button. The default is set to no (which will cause the registration to stop if chosen).

Re: something missing or conflict

I ended up changing the mod a bit (moving your messages to the L_ area in the usercp file) and then discovered the error in the profile_add_body.tpl page:

<!-- BEGIN switch_register -->
<tr bgcolor="#FF0000">
<td colspan="2">
<span class="h1" style="color: white">{SPAMBOT_MESSAGE}</span><br /><br />
<span class="gen" style="color: white">{SPAMBOT_MESSAGE_EXPLAIN}</span>
</td>
</tr>
<!-- END switch_register -->


Eventually I just re copy and pasted it and got it to work. Strange. There must have been a bad character in there or something.

Do you mind showing the code? I don't have a major problem, but the humanizer field and this warning box shows up twice on the registration screen.

Same issue here, duplicated switch_register blocks.

I'm installing the humanizer, cause this bot does not stop all the bots.

OK, in includes/usercp_register.php

this line of code is duplicated:

Code: Select all

if ( $mode == 'register' )
	{
		$template->assign_block_vars('switch_register', array());
I solved it by combining the 2 mods like this:

Code: Select all

if ( $mode == 'register' )
	{
		$template->assign_block_vars('switch_register', array());
		// Aquí esta el Stop Spambot Registration MOD
		$template->assign_vars(array(
			'SPAMBOT_MESSAGE' => $lang['Spambot_message'],
			'SPAMBOT_MESSAGE_EXPLAIN' => $lang['Spambot_message_explain'])
		);
		// Aquí termina Stop Spambot Registration MOD
	}

In the .tpl file, i just erase the <!-- --> tags and its text, and the twice warning disappears.

time will come when the spambots "learn" to read the warningtext, is it possible to have it replaced with a image instead of plain text?

I imagine those people_like_entities are usings bots to read anti_bot topics and to work out scripts based on the anti_bot_info they find. :P

Help? I'm a php programmer, do know what I'm doing, but have triple checked for an error and can't find it. After modding usercp_register (no prior mods, either) the site loses some globals. I get:

Code: Select all

Could not delete stale confirm data

SQL Error : 1146 Table 'xxxxxdb.CONFIRM_TABLE' doesn't exist

Line : 1016
File : /path/path/path/includes/usercp_register.php
So, I loooked around for an error, couldn't find one and tried defining CONFIRM_TABLE in that file, for the helluvit. Then I get

Code: Select all

Cannot redefine dss_rand()
It looks like a missing curly bracket, but like I said, I've tripled checked everything I added, plus all the stuff around it. Ideas? Thanks
