I have made very light use of my forum for about a year and it has worked great. Thanks for making such an easy forum to use. My problem came about a month ago, as I kept and open forum I started to get bots posting adds. I changed the settings so only members could access the forum, so everyone would have to register and I would have to confirm the registration. Well I'm not sure how to do that, I don't get any emails when someone registers and I don't know where in the admin menu to change someones status to member. So if anyone could tell me how to add new members that just registered that would be great.

Admin Panel>> Users and Groups>> Users: User Options>> New Accounts Activation: Admin

That's all it takes!

Bots can't post ads, so I'm a little confused by what you mean. They have the same rights as guests.

ACP --> Users and Groups --> Users --> User Options --> New accounts activation

Well then you can just change your permissions so guests can't post.

Bots are used by search engines to gather information for the search engines, not to post on your forums.

Internet bots, also known as web robots, WWW robots or simply bots, are software applications that run automated tasks over the Internet.

Thanks for the help, when I said bots I didn't actually mean porgrams just some tool who gets paid to copy and paste adds to any possible forum or other site.
