spam in my forums

no matter what I do I am getting dozens of spammers signing up daily and spamming my forums. is there a captcha or something that I can install to stop this? The email function does not seem to work as I just get notifications that it is not working and they join and spam anyway. Please help. Thanks.

    long time, no see (since the file upload plugin days :).

    check out the cleanser plugin and the botstop plugin and read the comments about those plugins in the respective plugin folders.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • i am getting the bonk thing on the cleanser... i changed the info as noted to: if (!Gdn::Session()->CheckPermission('Garden.Users.Edit')) exit();.... more help?

    i am getting the bonk thing

    isn't going to get you a lot of love on here.

    Search for 'bonk' and follow any of the dozens and dozens of posts which show how to get a detailed error report.

    If you can't work it out from that, post the error report.

    This is NOT the same as the content of your error logs.

  • had someone very helpful trying to help me last night.

    Well, you may be mystic, but mot of us aren't.

    If you don't get past the 'bonk' message to find the reported error, then any help will be guesswork at best.

    I'll consider myself unhelpful and leave you to nicer posters.
