I need a little help and direction here, please. I got as far as the eighth page in this thread and gave up. Here's the deal. I've sort of inherited the position of site administrator of a phpBB site after others who set up and modded it crashed and burned. I don't have full access to the site to be able to make mods, and although the anti-spam textual confirmation mod apparently was added at some point, it isn't activated - although a question and answer are posted, I can do a test registration with the wrong answer and still get a new registration. And so can the 40-50 bots per day, although at least their preliminary regs do not show on the front page.
Where can I go on this site to find some activation instructions to pass along to the person who supposedly has full access to the site and can make mods? I have a feeling that he has no idea of what to do and will have to prevail on the site owner to make changes, or me, if he decides to accord me full privileges so that I can do what I feel we need to do to protect ourselves and eventually upgrade to phpBB3 (we're stuck at 2.0.13 now).
Since we're a small site - about 150 members - I'll have no problem in activating valid registrations, one by one, and I doubt that we'll need to add any mods, other than a few textual changes from time to time, so once I get things upgraded, I should be on solid ground. I've trolled through other threads here and have picked up enough to feel confident that I can learn to install new software ... but until I can get rid of the spamregs, I won't have enough time to spend on studying.
So ... any links that anyone can post would be greatly appreciated.
