Topic: Auto register

Hello all

I seem to be getting porn and other types spam in my forum at first it was just one or two so just deleted them. when i started to look into the users to delete them and ban the ips and looked at the last few user that registered they all seemed to be fake accounts.

so i looked at the db and there seems to be loads in there so i take this one done by done script.

the ips are all different too
203.144.144.164
210.22.117.100

Re: Auto register

You might want to try out one of the captcha/image verification extensions from PunRes:

Also make sure email verification is enabled in Administration -> Options.
