Yes, it's 1.3.1 and yes, it runs since release.

The mod should be "Reg flood protection" - don't know if it will work with 1.4. Simply check boardmod.org for 1.4 mods.


Correct, one of my oldies but goodie mods for the 1.x series, now part of the base package Wink

If there is no 1.4 version, just pick an older one, as it is a very small mod which can be implemented manually as the code looked for is almost the same in the 1.x series YaBB.

Thought i'll bump this,

here

Looks a lot like your 'F.gif' code and that is a 1.4 forum so it works then?

and i still cannot find this mod can you help me ?

(i did look on boardmod but im lost)

oh and how come the banner says YaBB SP 1.4 'Server Edition' ?

Thank's

Of course YaBB developers love to see us use the actual versions, but old != bad  Tongue

Hey, my forum is even older - still 1.3.1 and I never had probs with bots. The best way is to add some custom field(s) to the registration form, and a verification duplicate where users have to confirm the same they put into the other field. No bot ever managed to "solve" that on my forum.

You can have a look at my registration form here



Right so yours is 1.3.1? and you have been running that since release? wow i see on your reg you have that capcha? thing what mod is there?  anywhere to download or is it custom to you? and will it work on 1.4 ?

thx !

And yes i know you guys dont support YaBB 1... i cant see why... good forums they are, but can you please point me in the right direction for some serious "security" for a 1.4 forum.

whats the best way to protect a 7 year old 1.4 YaBB board?


  7 years OLD .. that's why !  Ask Microsoft a question about Windows 98 .. you won't get any support there, either and you had to "pay" for that software.
  We still archive FAQ's, Solutions and Fixes on the YaBB Codex, that's more than Microsoft does !
   Tell him to Upgrade !!

Yea, (Friend of mine) has been using 1.4 since release he will not upgrade tho, anyway his forum is in maintenance mode for the time being, due to those evil russian bots... anyway whats the best way to protect a 7 year old 1.4 YaBB board?


is it that CAPTCHA thing? or is there more security?

And yes i know you guys dont support YaBB 1... i cant see why... good forums they are, but can you please point me in the right direction for some serious "security" for a 1.4 forum.


Cheers
