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.

I have followed the instructions as best as possible and added my own custom questions, images and answers but when i log out then try to register i can still only see my reCaptcha and not the images from this mod. I can't figure out what i did wrong. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Here is the screen shot of my setting page in the admin panel

Per my post...

New Feature: Will now work on new threads and new replies if you have human verification enabled for guests to post.

Important note- This mod is NOT compatible with my "Quick Reply for Guests" mod. Sorry- I tried hard but could not get them to play nice- so it's one or the other. You can use both mods but you have to turn this mod off for posts and replies if you use both.

Tested and working on VB 4.2.0 and should work on all VB 4.x.x. versions.
Just not going to happen.

I do not.
Are there any other settings I should check? Or are there any other mods that this might work with?
I am willing to check anything suggested to get this work.

Are your plugins enabled? Do you have any other mods installed that are working?

If you go to Admin CP -> Plugins & Products -> Product Manager is there any notice at the top of the screen saying plugins are disabled?

If you go to Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> Plugin/Hook System is it set to YES?

I looked at both of those and there was a warning at the top of the Plugin Product Manager saying they were turned off in the config.php

top half of the image is the Plugin Product Manager, the bottom half is the Plugin/Hook System

I would like to thank you for porting this into vb4.

Installed and for the last 3 weeks not a single bot got in.

I have 20 question and answer in default one and another 20 in this

Given that they both are random = 400 possibilities. )

Questions are simple but there is no chance any bot will ever crack it unlike captchas or re-capchas

Thanks again

IMO this has to be build on, let me know if you need my vote in JiRA

Fantastic idea

I have recently used the mod "keycaptcha" which is outstanding for stopping bots, but its somehow connected to their server, and it seems to get DDOS I'm guessing from time to time and allow bots

This is pretty similar in some regards, but more custom and more reliable! A+ for the idea, and I will try install this tomorrow...
