Anti-SPAM Tool.



This is an enhanced version of the popular NoSpam! mod by antialiasis for vBulletin 3.7

Original Mod Thread Here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=183329

This mod was marked "Re-usable Code" so I have added a new feature that turns this into an Image Verification mod.

I thank antialiasis for the groundwork and his original mod and thank him again for allowing the code to be re-used by the community.

This new version of NoSpam! called NoSpam! Image Enhancement turns the very popular NoSpam! mod into a custom image verification system. The VB4 version only works on Registration, Threads/Posts, and/or Contact Us pages.

Besides just setting a question and answer(s) you now also set an image which is displayed along with the question. You should make your question based on the image.

For example: If you have an image with two cats, you can ask the question, "How many cats are in this picture?" and you can set the acceptable answers to: 2 and two. (Answers are NOT case sensitive.)

If you used the original NoSpam! mod you will quickly understand how to format the question, image, and answers. If you never used the NoSpam! mod I have included specific instructions and examples.

Two example images are included with the zip and will be need to be uploaded to your /images/nospam directory (which you will create.)

When you import the product it will automatically be setup to work with the two example images.

These are EXAMPLES- you should add your own images and questions as soon as possible.

BE CREATIVE with your images and questions. The more creative you are the harder it will be for spammers to crack this.

Sometimes you might be able to ask several different questions based on the same picture.

Useful Tip: DO NOT include the answer to the question in the file name of the image. This will be the easiest way for bots to try and answer your questions.

This is Version 1.0 - Official Release

Demo: http://www.qapla.com/mods/sendmessage.php (on the "contact us" page) Will also show on the registration page.
(You must be logged out or a guest to see it in action on Qapla.com)

See screenshots for more examples.

Disability Compliance: Please understand this mod will make it impossible for blind users to register on your forum. The "alt" text of each image will tell people if they can't see the image please contact the administrator. Please be considerate and offer alternate means of registration on your forum somehow/somewhere besides your normal registration.

This has been tested on VB 4.0.8 and 4.2.0 and should work on all VB 4..x.x versions.

Please Mark as Installed if you use this.

This product didn't work when the No Spam Image Enhancment product was installed. It works fine in Contact Us but not in Registration. Any ideas on how to make the work together?

Thanks

brilliant idea and it works brilliantly as well on 4.2, I was getting around 100 spammers a day signing up even with a q+a set up and keycapture enabled, this has stopped all the spammers in their tracks

thanks BirdOPrey5

This IS the No Spam! Image Enhancement mod. If you mean you have the regular NoSpam! mod installed I would suggest only 1 or the other, no real reason to need both.

Sorry. I mean't that I'm using both No Spam and Advanced Registration Lite by DragonByte. It works fine in Contact Us but not in Registration the images and fields do not show up. I need Advance Registration because I have some custom fields that need to be filled out durring registration. Any ideas on how to make the work together?

Thanks!!

Looking at that mod it is a complete rewrite of register.php to their own registration.php and the code has none of the hooks register.php has built in.

I don't see any mods working on that page... and without hooks I don't see it ever happening without manual file edits.

It would probably be easier for them to just add a comparable feature (question based off an image) then to try and get this mod to work on their page.

To clarify, we hook into existing hooks in the register.php and simply output our own template to allow for complete field management. Compatibility is possible, all that would be needed is to integrate your field into the field management page. Unfortunately, an easy integration feature doesn't exist in our product as of yet, but I will be happy to look into your mod to see if it could be integrated (with your permission of course).

Also, disabling "Use Custom Page" will revert back to using the default vB template which will, naturally, allow for your field to populate itself into the page.

- Jon

Jon, this mod was from and remains "Re-usable code" so you are free to do whatever you want with it- no additional permission is needed.

I based my previous statement on looking at a copy of registration.php and saw no hooks in it- but I didn't actually install the mod so thank you for the clarification.

The concept of asking a question based off an image specified in settings is not complicated or ground breaking code, you would be more than welcomed to add such a feature to your mod using this code or simply writing your own- no trade secrets here.
