Forum Spam Addressed (hopefully)

Post by DrDave » Sat Feb 25, 2017 12:29 pm

I've had the forum shut down for a little bit because the forum spam was getting out of control. I finally had some time to update the software, but it wasn't easy as I'm using a modified version of phpbb which isn't really supported any more. With updating to phpbb 3.2 and implementing a few other modifications, I think I have the forum working similarly to how it was before, but now with a few additional features. Most important from my perspective is the improved forum spam prevention using Google's recaptcha. Hopefully this will help and the forum can start getting some use again.

Having said all of that, I'm not sure how much time I'll have to answer people's questions, but I'll certainly do my best!

Welcome to the forum and hopefully you find some useful information here.
