Contrib files don't have latest security updates

Post by NativeMind »

Hi,

The visual confirmation contrib files don't have the latest updates in 2.0.8.... the visual confirmation has been recommended to help stop the continuous registration bot problem.... :?

The README in the contrib folder wrote: This directory contains a couple extra add-ons for phpBB 2.0.x.

Please note none of these are directly supported by phpBB Group

You should contact the author/s (via our forums) if you want further information.
A large number of additional mods are available introducing increased funtionality to the standard phpBB2 release. You can find many additional mods at our main site...


'Nuff said.

Hi, this have been asked before, I don't think the phpBB Group bother to update the Visual Confirmation MODification (since this have been brought up earlier but nothing happens), so I would suggest NOT replacing your new 2.0.7/2.0.8 file with the one provided in the ZIP, instead, make the changes that is specific to Visual Confirmation

You can follow the below installation guide for a step-by-step guide to adding this MOD
