  • Banning registrations from certain countries?

    Every registration I get from India, Russia, China and the Philippines is a spammer - is there a way to ban all these registrations automatically?

    in options, there is IP bann. You could use .cn, .ru and im not sure what thedot com for Philippines is but that will limit a good amount coming from there.

    or you can place the IPs in htaccess

      Use the "Country IP ban" mod from vBulletin.org.

          No. Do you have a search button? Search actually works in the old version of VB that they use there.

            I can't find a mod with that name - plenty of other IP related mods though.

                  What I need to do is actually refuse outright registrations from certain countries. Any suggestions?

                  This mod simply puts certain registrations in a mod queue, which I do with all new registrations anyway.

                    Anyone? I'm deluged by registrations from India and China that are all spammers. If I can somehow ban their IPs then it will save me a lot of time each day deleting them all.

                      This is not possible in the default software.
