hi
i've been hit by Comment / forum Post bots, posting all kind of links to casino etc sites, i know i can switch off posting by ungegistered users but this fix is better, and requires a random number input for the post to be successfull

there are only 2 files to edit:
comments.php
templates/quickcom.tmpl

quickcom.tmpl 1st and 4th line are original 2nd and 3rd are new
<input type="hidden" name="post" value="new" />
<img width=120 height=30 src="/button.php" border="1">
<input MAXLENGTH=5 SIZE=5 name="userdigit" type="text" value="">
<input type="submit" value="{$Globals['pp_lang']['submit']}" />


comments.php very top of php file, just below the copyright comments

include "audit.php";

if (audit()) {
// Visitor entered correct number
} else {
echo "wrong number entered, hit back on browser";
exit;
// Wrong number
}


files attached are in txt format, rename them to php

hope this helps
