  • I can't keep people from filling my forums with spam? Anyone know what I can do?

    All I can do is erase the spam posts every day. The spam posts are sent under different screen names each time, and from a different internet provider each time.

    You should install anti-SPAM hacks from vBulletin.org
    I've install several of them and setup standard anti-bot system in vBulletin and now amount of successful spammer registration is close to zero.

      Using questions and answers instead of captcha I have had one spammer in the last 8 months.

        How do I use captions and answers? I don't know how to activate that.

        I don't know how to change my settings to use questions and answers.

          Are you using vBulletin 3.5? This version doesn't support Question and Answer and has very basic support for Image Captcha. I suggest upgrading to vBulletin 4.1.X instead of using insecure and out of date software that is over 5 years old.
