will this mod work on V2.4?

Hi Jim,

I haven't actually tested it on 2.4. It will work, but there's a chance that some search strings might need minor adjustments for it to run through BoardMod.

Give it a go, and if you have any problems let me know.

Hi Derek

Just installed on my 2.3.1 forum at http://www.aussiecampovenforum.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl

Spammers now have to answer a question about capital cities in Australia.  Will see how clever they are now.  Tongue

Many thanks for such great work.


Derek

You should see a big difference. I installed it on my 2.5AE forum about 2 months ago and it works great.

Since installing it, I can count on 1 hand the spammers that have been able to get by it. The user has to ID the state at the top of my pages.

I must say, this one is a must. Thanks Derek for a great mod Smiley

Be sure to change the Default Q & A -

I have a for-sure report that some SPAM-bots have been programmed with the default Q & A of Derek' Barnstorm's excellent Anti-spam Question Mod (now part of the YaBB core),  I am awaiting details if they were capable of anything past automatically registering.

Good Luck to all

Hi Jon,

I've asked Dandello to remove the default questions from the next release:

http://testbed.dandello.net/cgi-bin/yabb254/YaBB.pl?num=1359392721/0#0

And I'll remove them from this mod when I get a minute...

New zip attached to the first post - removed default questions (I've also removed the screenshot).

I haven't changed the version number.

Hi Derek, I finally had time to load this to my 2.5 board. It stops the bots cold!! Do you think the mod will work in versions 2.2 and 2.2.1?

Thanks again!

I've never tested it with those versions. You could try the mod file for 2.3 attached to reply #4, but you might have to tweak it to work through BoardMod. I haven't got a working machine to test on right now I'm afraid. Cry

Hi Derek,

Sorry it took so long for me to get back, life keeps getting in the way!

It doesn't look like it'll work with 2.2 or 2.2.1. Everything was going great until the "Sources/Register.pl. There doesn't seem to be either search string so I don't know where to put the new code.

Hi,

Try the one attached to this post. I haven't tested it though - I've just changed the last two search strings for Register.pl.

That seems to have done the trick. I added it to the 2.2.1 forum and it seems to be working perfectly. I'll add it to the 2.2 forum later today.

Thanks very much, Derek!  Smiley
