Enter Your admin panel and in your left side menu click Spambot countermeasures


Click to see full size image

Now you should see an area titled Available plugins in there will be a drop down menu, Q&A CAPTCHA should be greyed out if you haven't already activated it, if you haven't select it and click the configure box.



Click to see full size image

You should be seeing a screen like this, where you can add questions you wont have any yet, so click add and you'll get to a screen like below

You can enable the strict check if you want the answer to be exactly how you've answered, but you don't really need this switched on and remember if you have more than language setup on your board, it's best to have the questions in both languages by doing them a second time and selecting the other language in the drop down box.


So far on a gaming community I run away from myff, using this method, I have yet to deactivate or delete a spam account.

As long as the questions are unique and tie in to what your forum is about, it will be unlikely any get through, I have this method setup on a gaming community with 4 different questions all relating to games/characters/places and so far haven't had any in around a month or so.

Perfect idea! Trying it now!

I have one question. Why can't we use REcaptcha (better than Captcha) as WELL as the questions? Why do we have to choose one of the other when it is well known that having more than one anti-spam feature works better.

It is important if doing the questions that answers be simple to spell and not easily found on Google searches.  I am trying this out as I know that spam programs can be used to beat captchas and the latest I heard can even defeat REcaptchas..  Wonder which one is more effective though - Recaptcha or 4 questions related to the topic theme of the forum.

Is Google ReCaptcha  v2 supported?
Like "I'm not a robot".
