    That is a sweet hack and will be installed once vb 2.3.0 is final.

    And bof19_br0 is now banned on my forums, this is starting to get annoying.

      You know I think I know why he's not attacking my forums: I have an extra field that needs to be filled in upon registration ("Where did you hear about WDF from?"). If he's just using a bot then he can't get past the first step.

            I dont want to get into the "installing hacks" thing again - makes upgrading a real pain, especially as we have 2.3.0 on as a release candidate.

            Jelsoft really need to act on this officially and quickly. They have seen this thread and the number of people affected - why arent they doing anything about it??

              I have that too, and it is needed before registration can continue... yet he had three signups on my forums...

              EDIT: bof19_br0 just banned too - that makes 4

                just remove your site from the public list by changing Display in online links system in the members area.

                    Would you rather like spammers posting porn on your site, or would you rather like to spend an extra 5 minutes installing that hack.

                    I don't know about you, but it's an easy decision for me. Since it's your forums, Jelsoft can't really do anything about it. The idea that the vBulletin Links page led to this is just speculation -- they could've just as easily typed in "forum" or "vBulletin" in Google and started form there.
                    :)

                        I don't mind installing the hacks; but the thread that you posted is too confusing for me. One person started the thread, then another seemed to hijack it. I'm not sure which hack to install. And I don't want to mess up my registration. Thanks

                          Which range did you block?

                            Just added a field like that to mine, to see if it works.

                                according to the hack's read me file you have to " chmod the cache folder to 0777 (read, write and execute)".

                                How the heck do you do that?
