MOD Validated/Released

Notes:
This MOD works by making website field invisible during registration. Spam bot that uses auto-registration script which provides an website URL will be detected and stopped.

Posted in wrong forum initially sorry :oops:

Hi

Getting more and more spammers from Bots and tried the below

http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=257755

Still got the spammers

Also tried the below MOD and it blocked spammers but then when new users went to log in they got the below error
so had to change it back to the original and the spammers came back

Can I change anything in the below MOD to fix it so that users can log in but will stop the bot spammers

Cheers

General Error

Could not obtain next user_id information

DEBUG MODE

SELECT MAX(user_id) AS total FROM phpbb_users

Line : 613
File : usercp_register.ph

Thank you very much for your time!,

You have installed the MOD incorrectly then, undo all changes and then reapply them :)

It would be nice if the IPs of all spammers (bots) are recorded in order to ban them.

Yep. Registration bots will enter the data into the field, but it doesn't exist. So the Mod will block all who enter something into that field, wich is impossible for Humans :)
