Hi
phpbb forum is biggest target of spammers. I am using phpbb forum in my website. I spent all time in checking post and user's email or website's link which they used to post in my website forum. Even my forum is not very popular in search engine, how they spammer get information of my website forum. And post 30 to 40 post daily in my website forum. I used all tricks like captchas while registering to phpbb forum, email verification also. Still i get spam.

Even i made a trick when user register or posting a post he has to add number by JavaScript script. All are useless and user post spam

Spammer by pass user interface page and post directly to forum database. JavaScript validation is useless for spammer. captchas can stop little at starting page of posting. Need to use captchas intelligently to stop entry into database.

phpbb 3.x is more spammer resistant and launch with advance fighting spam tools. Image verification is harder than pbpbb 2.x forum in registration level, admin control panel have more power features now.

yah yah spamming is biggest problem of phpbb or free forum, but giving up to phpbb forum is not a solution. we do not forget phpbb is free and open source forum. Everything is not come free and not package with full proof solution. or spend some bucks on to buy it.

phpbb is using with no modification in source, cannot stop spam. Give little time as cost of investment in phpbb and do modification in code, if you serious about to run forum freely.

Anti spam mod is flooded in internet.

Use atleast one of them in forum. can reduce spamming in forum.
