This mod calculates the time it takes to go between these two pages:
  • /forum/register.php?do=register
  • /forum/register.php?do=addmember
The point is to try and prevent bots from registering at your forum when the time between the two pages is humanly impossible, assuming that humans actually take the time to complete the registration page.

Should a user be blocked from registering at your forum, an email will be sent to your vB webmasteremail address and the user will see the vB noregister phrase message, so no screenshot is necessary.

I have a couple decent sized forums and block about 50/each per day. That means 50 emails. I don't want to DISABLE the emails but would LOVE to just get ONE email every day recapping all the attempts that were blocked.

Anyone know how to get this done?

2) In the vB register template find:

<input type="hidden" name="url" value="$url" />

And afterwards add the following:

<input type="hidden" name="isbot_time1" value="$isbot_time1" />
I just can't find where VB register template is, could you please help me located where this is???

Admin CP -> Style & Templates -> Style Manager. In drop down, choose Edit Templates. Scroll down to find "Registration Templates ", and double click on it to expand. Double click on "register". Find referenced line and add mod code after.

ps. This is not "support on demand". Give it more than 15 minutes.

15? His second post was only 4 minutes after the first!

Seriously, people will help when they can. Sometimes that is the same day, sometimes a couple days later. You need to learn to be patient.

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

Great mod! I've just installed it yesterday ~6 pm. Within 12 hours I got 60 mails and ~6 hours later again 30 mails about failed registration. I've left the code at 15 seconds, but now I've turned off the mails In all this time I'm using it now only 2 bots came through.
Thx so much! It really makes my life and the life of the other admins on my forum much easier!
