    Thank you so much for donating. It is always appreciated!

    Version 2.0 of Registration Form Timer now includes the Stop Botters API by tenants.

    Extra special thanks goes to tenants for providing and integrating this API.

    StopBotters (Optional) Detection Mechanism
    Stops A high percentage of known bots using an API request.
    Known bots are detected via IP address / Email Address / Username.
    The underlying StopBotters mechanism is confidential

    What this does
    It is humanly impossible to fill in a default XenForo registration form in less than 15 seconds (please adjust this to your needs).

    If your registration form is completed too quickly then you have a choice of actions to take.

    You can either block the registration attempt with an error message:


    Or redirect them to a URL of your choice:


    In addition to that, you can opt to receive e-mails for each registration attempt that is blocked:


    This add-on can be installed using the Add-On Installer.

    • Extract the contents of the Zip file.
    • Upload the contents of the upload folder to the root of your XenForo installation.
    • Install in the Admin CP using the provided XML file.
    UPDATE 1.2:
    This update now includes an option to redirect the bot to a fake success page.

    This is the normal XenForo successful registration page. I would hope this to make the bot believe they have successfully registered when they haven't.



    Also included is an option to log registration attempts. If enabled, each failed registration attempt is logged:

    Brilliant add-on! In just over 72 hours, it has stopped over 200 spam registrations, a big problem at our boards. This should be added as a stock option, that's how good it is. Highly recommended!!!

    Awesomely good. Also has the added ability to mess with the bots by switching up what happens after the registration attempt.
