I mean this forum is really a piece of art, the developer ran to drupal, is he still updating the forum, he even charged me for it.

It is really a horrible forum, is there a way to enable captcha so the new users will have to use capthca to register???

Is there a way to completely remove the bb code inside posts?

I dont want spammers to get link juice anymore

how to delete users and all his posts in 1 click?

And it would be great if finally there would be a modele like 10 lasts post, or 10 last articles

i mean every freaking cms have them

In case you missed it, there's an effort under way to breath some life back into the Forum plugin: Forum Plugin 2.8.0 - BETA 1

There's also a CAPTCHA plugin that works with the existing forum. It is in fact installed here on geeklog.net (try to post something as an anonymous user).

Unfortunately, the Forum does not yet support mass-delete for spam (like we have for comments). Maybe something to suggest to the new maintainers.

You could also install the spamx plugin. The forum will use this. I also created a module for it to limit the number of links someone can post (from 0 to XX)


You can also use the messages tab in the admin to filter forum posts by user, topic, etc...
