How to moderate ALL posts

Post by pilotjourney »

I need to moderate all posts on the forum because of HUGE amounts of spam. Where do I go to do this? I have looked and looked.

Being new to phpBB where's the best place to look for someone to install all the anti-spam mods and etc?

You should only need to moderate the first few posts.

ACP>post settings>enable queued posts>submit

If you dont want to install a MOD yourself, set a custom profile field to stop the bots

ACP>users and groups>custom profile fields>select 'numbers' call the field 'antispam' >create new field>

Display profile field yes

Display on registration screen yes

Required field yes

Field description 'what is 20x30' (or whatever your question is)>profile type specific options>

set the lowest and the highest number to the answer to your question>save
