Not sure if right forum if not mods remove
Wondering if anyone can help with the below
We have a vBulletin forum at http://www.worldeasy.com/forum//forum.php. Recently we have been getting a lot of Bots registering as users and I have to delete them. I have the Captcha set up and yet still they get through this. Also set up security question but the same
Asked VBulletin but no real help with them
Is there anyway to stop these from registering as tired of removing them in the control panel in Vbulletin
Use stopforumspam.com plugin for vBulletin. It will mostly diminish spam signups.
What version of vBull? There are built in controls in the newest verions. You can turn on CAPTCHA responses, or as I prefer, put in a custom question like 'what colour is the ocean'.
The plugin suggestion is probably the best. The hardcore solution would be to deepsix problem countries by IP range. But that's probably overkill.
Best protection on the net with 100% effectivness
That looks likely to drive off a load of legit users too
Device dependent and visual, too. So it's inaccessible as well.
