  • [Forum] flood of registrations and spammers

    Since the 4.1.1 upgrade last week, I have bee getting 60 to 80 new registrations per DAY!

    This is far from my normal 5-15 per day for the past year.
    Not only that, I am getting about 20-30 new spam posts per day. ARG!
    They are all caught and moderated, but I was wondering what I can do to reduce this?

    I "Human Verification Library" reCaptcha enabled. Is this just for registration?

    Can I for a certain user group like "Guests, Unregistered, and Registered Users" to enter some form to post?
    I have 2 additional groups based on time span and post count that I would not force this on....?

    Thank You...Mick Knutson
