I am having increasing bogus registrations, and I would like to find and install something that will require registrants to actually read their screen and select a response. I have heard of a graphic routine called a captcha that can do this. Has anyone implemented one on a FUDForum installation? If so, where did you get it and where did you put it?

Go the the Admin Control Panel -> Global Settings Manager and look for "Disable Captcha Test":

"If disabled users will not need to complete a turing test intended to prevent automated account creation bots. Captcha test involves identifying a series of random letters that are displayed in ASCII form."

Best regards.

It should be noted, in case of confusion, setting this to Yes will Disable the built-in anti-turing mechanism. Setting it to No will Enable it. *grin*

I thought it was Enabled ("No") by default... It -should- be if it isn't.
