I have never managed to get BoardMod to work

Before I finally learned how to use BoardMod to install mods (I've only installed two), I very effectively stopped spam-bots in our YaBB 2.4 forum by impementing ggn's anti-spam hack (click here for those details). I'm still using it.
Say good-bye to those spam-bots!  Smiley

The following will be your best option:

OR you can cut most of it off by this tip:

In Admin Center > Referrer Security

Uncheck Register2

That will stop most SPAMbots that use 'foreign form' submissions (a large part of the volume)

Wink

Good Luck
  

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Go to http://www.carsten-dalgaard.dk/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl (he wrote SpamFruits.) and check out the 2.4 section at http://www.boardmod.org/yabb2/YaBB.pl?catselect=mods_y2

And yes, the newest BoardMod program will work fine with 2.4.
  

If you only have one solution to a problem you're not trying hard enough!

Board mod will work on 2.4.

If you are interested in upgrading, Spamfruits and the Anti-spam question mod are now built in to YaBB 2.5.2's core.

If you still want to download it and install on your 2.4 forum then you can download it here

If you have problems you can post a topic in Carsten's forum and he will be glad to assist.

Good luck with Spamfruits. You will find that it really works.

Spam help needed with YaBB 2.4

Hi guys,

I have spent an hour reading this section of the forum regarding spam because I am getting hundreds of spam user registrations daily. It's getting so bad that I have had to turn on only admin can register new users.

I am using YaBB 2.4 and after much reading, I want to install the spamfruits mod. I can't find any documentation regarding this or even a copy of this mod. I am a bit of a novice at this so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Also, does BoardMod v2.5.6 work with YaBB 2.4?

Many thanks,
Charlie.
