While you wait for the masters, could you post that line here please.
There maybe a missing )
Or maybe attach that file.


Im guessing you manually installed the mod?
Could you attach that file please.

yeah, i was trying to manually install it......So far my only options was to appoint a few peeps as mods and have them keep the spam out themselves...

What did u need me to post  here? what file? thanks for the reply........Would still like to get this added..

Yep, sorry maximumrock, I missed your reply.
Attach the template Tiribulus stated.

I took a look at the parser and I figured maybe even I could do it :)

Sabre™

Yep, I think there is just a little extra code in his template, thats all.
All yours buddy :)

will do in a few.. no worries..... thanks for the reply..... So far things have been ok since i had added a few mods to help keep the spam out.... but would still like to do this..

this is for version 1.1.8

maximumrock

here is the attach file you requested.... Thanks!

Arantor

maximumrock: you are advised to update to 1.1.10 before continuing. Some of the patches between 1.1.8 and 1.1.10 are security related and may actually affect this mod.

Regarding modification of other files from Register.template.php to Modifications.english-utf8.php, its pretty clear and i can do.

But regarding install1.php, i am totally confused.
What is this and what should i do with this?

Arantor

That file is used to modify the database. You should be able to put it in the same directory as SSI.php then browse to it.

Warning - while you were typing a new reply has been posted. You may wish to review your post.

You add it to the root of your forum(where your Packages and Avatars folders are), then run it through your browser.
eg.
h**p://the name of your site/install1.php

From the MODs instructions i got this piece of code for install1.php
INSERT IGNORE INTO{$db_prefix}settings(variable, value)
VALUES ('are_you_human_s', '1'),('are_you_human_q', '0'),('are_you_human_a

From what i understand,
(1). i need to create a file called install1.php and
(2). copy the above code into that file and
(3). move it to the root of the forum and
(4). run mydomain.com/install1.php

If all the above are correct, i have 2 more questions:
(A). Do i need to change any of the above code, like the database name or somethine like that...(excuse me, i am not a techie ;D)
(B). Even though i am not a techie, i have a strong feeling the above file is incomplete somewhere.

Arantor

No to 1-2. If you look inside the package's zip file you'll see the file in question. You just upload it to your server (3) then follow 4.

A/B) You're right, it's incomplete. The file should be in the mod package itself though with more instructions in it.

This is the link i followed
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=999
From there when i check Are_You_Human_v2_3.zip (6kB)[3184] and hit parse for v1.1.10, that is the only code(incomplete) i get.

mailtokikku

just see the below pic




how can i remove that


Arantor

You'll need to remove the edit from Register.template.php.

Hi, Someone has used this as a looping virus thingy (sorry don't know what else to call it). Every time I open Internet Explorer OR Foxfire, I am asked "Are you Human?", however, there is no way to answer, though the buttons for yes/cancel are visible. I can't even close it without going into Task Manager. How do I get rid of this???!!

Anti-Bot: Are You Human/Bot? v2.3




Compatible With:SMF 1.1.X - SMF 2 Beta & RC1
Created By:Karl Benson
Developed By:.LORD.
Version:2.3
Languages:English

A simple Anti-Bot Registration Check that requires registering users to confirm that they are HUMAN (or NOT BOT). Otherwise the registration will not proceed.

Quote from: Karl BensonIt is a cat and mouse game between forum software and bot-creators to secure forums against spam bots.
Using generic/centralised anti-spam measures makes it viable for bot-creators to try to get past them.
If every forum employs completely different anti-bot measures it makes it almost impossible to create bots for mass-automated registration.

Ok, I tried this, but it isn't there. I didn't add the anti-bot. It just started showing up no matter where I was going on the browser. It stays on whatever page I open and won't let me move from there. In effect I can't use either browser. Any other suggestions?

You'll need to remove the edit from Register.template.php.
