Hi,

If you're using 2.5 then a CAPTCHA is already built in - In 'Admin Center => Security Settings', under the 'Validation Image' tab enable 'Activate validation code (CAPTCHA) on registration, forgot password, and send topic?'...


Many thanks, that's why I did not find it anywhere Roll Eyes My mistake Smiley

I'm also new here and my english is not best.
so I thought to get one of the question ... However, since I noticed a similar thread, I post here.

Can anyone please help?
I use Yabb 2.5 and donīt find that "Captcha" or something.. I found a similar mod (sorry canīt put link, because its first post)
but it does not work, because I can not install it, it is meant for e-Yab 2.1
BoardMod gives the first rows in the error message file: profile.pl dosent find word "&ToHTML($FORM{'hideemail'});"

Where can I find the right stuff, I realy dosenīt find it.

Thanks

   ?????  On a YaBB Forum ?  Certainly does ... can be made VERY hard if desired, adding noise and randomizing background

Sure -

I'm guessing you are talking about something like the math question ones (the easiest) or match the word tests (word pairs)???

It just needs some Perl code. so since you say you aren't a coder - the right place to look/ask is Board Mod. Its a forum just for YaBB modifications.  YaBB modifications are version specific, so a Mod would need to be for the version of YaBB you have installed.

The modder's definitely take requests so if you don't find one that fits your needs, ask for it!  I personally think this is potentially a very useful mod (although YaBB is pretty good at defeating non-human registrants).

here's the link:

Good Luck

Captcha does not work. Maybe password is the wrong expression. I would like to ask a simple question. Only those who answer it correct are allowed to register in the forum. Do you think it's possible to realize such a thing?

   Prompt for a password "before" registration ?  Registration is where a form is used for username and password.  There wouldn't be a password available till "after" registration.
   "If" you're trying to restrict registration ... use captcha to insure it is a human trying to register, that will eliminate script registrants.
