Hi

What safeguards are in place against robots?

I mean, can the user registration process include visual identication (i.e. the image with letters in it), email identification (your account is only activated after clicking a URL in the email sent during registration), and a terms of use?

I couldn't find anything about this in the documentation - of course, I may have missed something..

Thanks!

PS: I moved this post from TODO / New Features where I originally posted it (probably wrongfully, sorry!)

Yes, jForum has Captcha (image) support built in. You can enable this via the configuration files. IFAIK, you can require this at various levels up to being required to post (even if logged in).

Look thru the SystemGlobal.properties for the "Captcha" tags to add into your jforum-custom.config file.
