Bot Checking on Registration

Post by Fang on June 25th 2010, 8:30 am

Here's a request from my forum:
http://pristinecoders.canadian-forum.com/requests-f13/captcha-t50.htm

Basically, my members are requesting that there be a little box with random letters and numbers that you must type in in order to continue with registration to protect from botters and spammers. How would I go about doing this?

Sincerely,
Fang

The problem with that is that you can get around it if you know the link to the register page...

Spam bots can still register even if you have image verifications on the forum but in my knowledge, it can reduce the amount of spam bots that can register on the forum Wink
