Login and Account Creation

Recommended Posts

Okay, because of the resent SPAM Bots. I had to go and look at the account creation settings. Until Yesterday, it was using Googles reCAPTCHA v1. And although the site code was correct, google was not serving the CAPTCHA. Instead it was telling users to let the site admin know to goto a link to upgrade to reCAPTCHA v2.

 

That was very dumb of Google to open sites up like that. And I am thinking of looking to see if anyone has started a Class Action against Google for that.

 

So, what I had done yesterday was set the account creation to use the KeyCAPTCHA instead. It uses different way of doing captchas.

 

Today I have found and downloaded, and installed, the IPB v3.x reCAPTCHA V2 module. (Which was created by a IPB admin.) The reCAPTCHA v2 is for future use, for if I find that the KeyCAPTcHA is not working.

 

And I also installed another module to integrate CAPTCHA into the Login screen as well. As much as I do not like having the CAPTCHA during login. I think it would be best for the future.

So that is how they got in.  Figured something had changed and keycaptcha looks like it will do the job but damn I hate captchas, but, as we saw, they are necessary.

Yea, same, oh well. Here's to pictures with signs in them.  lol

I went to the website yesterday and keycaptcha shows an apple like a jigsaw puzzle so I guess we have to click on the piece and slide it in. ;)

Yep, it is like a puzzle and you have click on the piece(s) and slide them to there proper place to complete the image. This would something that normal spam bots can't handle.
