When you click non in the acp page and you leave a text in the answer box, the user that is trying to register will always have the error "wrong anti bot answer", but their is non text box to put any answer. To avoid the bug you must leave the text box in acp empty.

:o - Mmmm, Thanks for finding that, to fix it -

Open - includes/ucp/ucp_register.php

Find -

Code: Select all

                if ($data['AB_Question'] != strtolower($config['abanswer']) && $data['AB_Question'] != strtolower($config['abanswer2']))
                {
                    $error[] = $user->lang['AB_QUESTION_ERROR'];
                } 


Replace With -

Code: Select all

                if ($config['enable_abquestion'])
                {
                    if ($data['AB_Question'] != strtolower($config['abanswer']) && $data['AB_Question'] != strtolower($config['abanswer2']))
                    {
                        $error[] = $user->lang['AB_QUESTION_ERROR'];
                    }
                } 


Updated the mod - Download 1.0.3

I'm having a minor problem with this mod...

On the user registration page, instead of my defined anti-spambot question, it simply says

{ AB_Question }:

Anyone have any ideas what I've done wrong?

http://www.tempusdraco.com is the site...

You seem to be missing this part of the mod,

Open: includes/ucp/ucp_register.php

Find

Code: Select all

            'L_PASSWORD_EXPLAIN'        => sprintf($user->lang[$config['pass_complex'] . '_EXPLAIN'], $config['min_pass_chars'], $config['max_pass_chars']), 

Add after

Code: Select all

            'L_AB_QUESTION'                => $config['abquestion'],

Cheers mate that did it!

I accidentally copied in the wrong piece of code under the L_PASSWORD_EXPLAIN line :oops:

Once I've upgraded my other boards to phpbb3 this will be the first mod going on them 8-)
