Ok, here's a hard one..

How can I replace the Captcha with question/answer for new registrations?

It would take a good bit of recoding. The big problem is many bots can bypass a text based captcha. Potential users that do not speak English could also encounter problems.

Good point Montego. I have been using nukeSpam and Site Guardian both and have had almost zero spammers on my site.

So I've decided to use zbblock just not sure where to put this line of code in the mainfile.php The forums over there do not have much on RN, just people who already know the basics of php unlike me Razz

I tried at the very top of the mainfile.php but I couldn't load my website..

Recommendations please & ty!?


Now you must add:

<?php require('/home/blahblahblah/public_html/zblock/zbblock.php'); ?>

to all the pages you wish to protect, as near as you can to the top as you can, and deffinitely before any MySQL access occurs. Make sure you do not add any spaces, or new lines between the hook's "?>" and the original script's "<?php"

You can protect your admin section with the sentinel AUTH, you don't need zblock for that.

btw do i need to go download database keys for nuke spam or did it already come with them? I registered for keys regardless but api keys for stopforumspam are no longer available... what should I put in that field?

If you hover over the info icons in nukeSPAM, you will see what needs to be done to get the keys for the services.
