Users and Groups
Prune users


Banning is largely pointless if they're spambots. You might also find the load of the query to remove multiple accounts and their posts is too big. You'll have to do small groups of less than 100. Maybe even less than 20.

It's better to just stop those bots registering in the first place.

The built in Q&A with a question you cannot 'google' the answer to. Something that needs logic like a question about your logo or a word on the site.

How to configure Q&A
  1. Administration Control Panel (ACP) > Spambot countermeasures> Installed plugins > click the dropdown box and select Q&A (it will be greyed out)
  2. Click the configure button then click add
  3. Add your question and answer (you need a Q&A for each language you have installed) click submit
  4. Click “back to previous page” then click “back”
  5. Select Q&A from the dropdown box (again)
  6. Click submit at the bottom of the page.
  7. Done.
