Topic: Can I rename register.php and if I do what else needs to be changed?

I want to rename the file so the spam bots cant find that page so their script wont work on my site

Sure they could rewrite their script but are they really going to do that when they can just go to someone elses PunBB forum?

I'm tired of spammers registering, I have email verification on, so I know its spam bots because they register and never post



a better solution might be to require a valid "TOKEN" when someone registers, the token could be time limited also

heres a page that talks about that (go to the end of the article)

login.php, misc.php, post.php, register.php, include/functions.php

A token wouldn't stop a bot because a bot could easily be made to send the proper requests. It only works as long as the benefit of having a bot that does so is small (because few people have it)

Let us know if it works. I plan to do the same.
