Or just make a Guest forum/Category?


And add some permissions like ALL can post there, so only guys can post there, and mostly, you avoid that section/category.

What are the advantages of guest posting?

Advantages: If people are having trouble registering, they post to that category, yes only one category for guest.
Disadvantages: If you allow Guest-posting everywhere, people will post anonymously, so better make a new category/section for guests. only there they can post without registering.

Spammers have managed to make a special recognition system, which recognises symbols from CAPTCHA or whatever it's called. CAPTCHA is a visual confirmation image.

Here you can download a mod I was talking about. It improves CAPTCHA, makes it a lot more difficult for program recognition, but a human can understand it as good as the default one.

See the difference:

Default phpBB one:
http://www.dxalpha.com/users/daedalus/phpbbstandard.png

Enhanced one:
http://www.dxalpha.com/users/daedalus/phpbbmine.png

The mod works on most of hosts but not on all. That's why before installation you need to backup usercp_confirm.php file from includes/ folder.
After backuping, extract files from the archive to your includes/ folder, with overwriting usercp_confirm.php.
When it's done, log out and check if a visual confirmation image works and shows up on registering page.

Hope it helps.


I tried the link for the file it didn't work, did you remove the file? I was hoping to have it for my future endeavor...

Log out and press Register.

Very funny.

That was actually for phpbb2, currently this forum is running phpBB3 and the normal captcha is used with a slight alteration in behaviour (which is described in BOLD CAPS on the registration page).

Edit: I notice a new and improved humanity test beyond the one I was talking about above.
