  • Put new threads into moderation que if they have bad words in them

    I have a problem with a lot of adult spam bots on my site, I am trying to figure out a way to get rid of these posts and new threads before they even show up on the forum.

    My thought is what I would like to do is if there is a new thread started, and it has certain words in it that I say, then the thread will be put into moderation que instead of just being immediatley posted on the forum.

    Is anything like this possible or already in place? What other ideas are there for keeping spam bots off the site?

    There is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at
