Hi

Our site doesnt ask people to enter the Security Image when they sign up and we are finding we are getting spam accounts created.

How do we enable this feature. I've search the forum but alas cannot find an answer. I noticed when I registered with the forum I did have to enter the Security Image numbers displayed.

Thanks for any advice.

As Host Admin you can enable the CAPTCHA Feature under the features tab.

Thanks logan

I've looked for that option but cannot see it in the Admin control panel.

We use the following version, was that on that release?

Powered by Yet Another Forum.net version 1.9.1.8 (NET v2.0) - 3/29/2008

Are you able to give me any other directions?

Thanks

Doesn't appear to be in 1.9.1.8

You can try MISSJ's technique

Thanks Logan

I'll have a look around the forum re upgrading and any implications of it. Main concern is obviously not losing any existing content from posters.

Cheers
