Double CAPTCHA

Post by perkel » Wed Sep 21, 2016 1:12 pm

Is it possible to make user to answer Simple CAPTCHA and Q&A CAPTCHA at the same time during registration (phpBB version 3.0.11)?

You would need to search for an existing MOD (as support for 3.0.x will finish at the end of the year and requests are no longer allowed).

The reality though is that it's not really necessary. If you have a good non-searchable Q&A then that should stop the bots just fine.

besides which, the standard captcha does not work at all. the bots just sail right past it. I am not even sure why it is still available in the download.

Even Q &A captcha isn't always effective. I have had problems with spam bots breaking the Q & A captcha so that is why use the new google recaptcha.

With all due respect, but then your question has not been strong enough. :)
We always recommend to take a board-specific question that bots can't Google and change frequently.
