I just started up a new host with phpbb and I'm not up for less than a day and I'm already getting hit with spammers like crazy. I see this is more then one and I just don't want to download all of them until I can find one that's works. Does anyone know a good ext that will stop the bot or users posting this crap.
The inbuilt Q&A will work with a qood question that can not be Googled. Other than that The Sortables CAPTCHA works well, as does KeyCaptcha (un approved but was a very effective 3.0.x mod that was ported to an Extension at my request)
That way I don't have them posting in all the forums. Just the main forum.
they could post in all the fora where those have been sat to accept posting, except that those posts will go directly in the moderation queue where the moderator will see if and where that post will be visible.
