  • upgrading to 3.6.4 spam solutions

    I am finally getting around to upgrading to the latest version of 3.6.4 on my forum, and I wanted to find out all I could about spam protection. We have great moderators but they are all overworked because of all the drive by porn posters, and link spammers etc.

    Is there a post out there, or instructions on spam reduction for the new version, hacks etc? I don't want to make it hard for my users (Realtors for the most part) to register etc, I just want to make sure I do all I can to stop bots and spammers from clogging up our community.

    Any assistance or tutorials that can be provided would be great!
    Thanks guys

    Do you already use "image processing library"-settings? (ACP => vBulletin optionms => Image Settings)

        You're going to need to enable TrueType or use ImageMagick, the standard GD option will not be effective in fighting spam. You should also enable the first 4 image captcha settings.
