I tried this MOD of yours and keep getting various errors like the one below ...

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at e:\web\public_html\bin95\downtime\forum\includes\usercp_register.php:1) in e:\web\public_html\bin95\downtime\forum\includes\page_header.php on line 483

After the first time I double checked, read all replies to you post and issues others where having (although most a very happy thank yous.) Then I started replacign each modified file with backup original and trying to figure out which file was offensive. The errors did not go away until I put back the very last file, the languege file, then with all original, forum worked without erros.

Then I tried entering modes, one at a time and checking forum. the error above (plus t other simular ones) showed up right after modifying usercp_register.php with your mods.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I want to be one those lucky few who say spam bots don't register bogus names no more. :D

What program are you editing the PHP files with?
It is VERY important that you only use a plain text editor which does not add any extra information to the files.
In particular, there must not be anything added before the "<?php" at the start, or after the "?>" at the end.
That is no spaces, no blank lines, nothing!

Your only other post is asking about phpBB3, but this MOD is for phpBB2.

As I was using the code editor in MS Sharepoint Designer, so I would have swore using a text editor was not the problem. :lol:
... But after seeing how most all your other solutions offered to visitor's problems was correct the first time, I though I would take your advice and try just notepad as an editor. I don't like using it becuase no line breaks make code difficult to read, and I thought more chance for me to make an error.

But you where right, as usuual !! It now works and I have zero bogus registrations. !!! great Job, great MOD !!!

Ok, I did do the mod and it works great. not a single spammer but now, no friends can sign up. the image displays a code and it always says it's incorrect. i even tried it. so i went back and re-read the instructions. i tried the code i placed in the usercp_register.php file, and that didn't work.

any idea what to do?

Did you put any upper case letters in the code?
The default instructions convert what you type into lower case before doing the comparison.

no upper case at all. should it be all upper case?
in that case, would i just need to update the code i created?

No, I would put it all in lower case. Could we have a link to your board please?

You have made a mistake in the changes to http://redroomies.com/phpBB2/templates/ ... d_body.tpl

You have inserted the RAC code too early. Carefully check the "search for" string, what you are looking for has to match the WHOLE string.

apparently this was missing

Code: Select all

<tr> 
	  <td class="row1"><span class="gen">{L_CONFIRM_PASSWORD}: * </span><br />
		<span class="gensmall">{L_PASSWORD_CONFIRM_IF_CHANGED}</span></td>
	  <td class="row2"> 
		<input type="password" class="post" style="width: 200px" name="password_confirm" size="25" maxlength="32" value="{PASSWORD_CONFIRM}" />
	  </td>
	</tr>
so i put in based on the subsliver location. then the RAC code. i never had problems with mod's much, usually i can handle this but this is just racking my brain!
Still no one can sign up. i've been trying myself.

No it wasn't, you now have it in there twice.
Start again with the unmodified file. The RAC code goes AFTER all the password questions.
