Protect phpBB forum from spammers

Quick test:

  1. Are you a forum admin like myself?
  2. Do you receive shitloads of phony user account creation requests daily?
  3. Do these requests include a porn link in applicants’ web profile?

If you answered ‘yes’ to at least two of the above questions, you’re probably going mad right now.

If you’re going to keep phpBB as your web forum solution, may i recommend the following add-ons:


  • phpBB v3.0 is coming up soon; will be a major overhaul to upgrade from v2.x but will be more secure.
  • Simple Machines Forums : updatable, modular, secure; can migrate phpBB data to SMF (what I used for PD boards)

With that said, happy posting/moderating/banning😀

Welcome to Julien Coquet’s blog!

This blog is titled Negligible Quantities, after these small details that you always miss... and that end up messing up your plans!

Web culture in general and Web Analytics in particular depend on details. Most of my posts relay information that consists of details of importance to me.

I am Country Manager for France for the Web Analytics Association (WAA)

Bienvenue sur le blog de Julien Coquet

Ce blog est un espace où je parle de ces petits détails chers à mes analyses du Web.

Vous y trouverez des billets sur mon humeur du moment, mes coups de coeurs mais aussi mes coups de gueule :-)

Je suis responsable pour la France de la Web Analytics Association (WAA)

Le nom du blog, Negligible Quantities, est inspiré de Manu Larcenet et de ses Quantités Négligeables
