    If you've noticed a sudden trend of bots registering via FaceBook, then like me you might want to stop it quickly.

    ^^^WTF? Who has this happened to?

    Installed and tried to register with another Facebook account. The captcha showed up. This addon works great. Thanks!

    Can you do a version for Twitter and Google sign in?

    Not that easily, they're non core templates and files... I'm happy for the plugin designer of the Google/Twiter Auth to incorporate this as an option (it's a simple change to do). Ask the plug-in designer of the Google/Twitter Auth and tell them that it's fine by me to use what they need from this plug-in

    But to be honest, if it's not core functionality, then it's far less likely to be targeted... for now

    The install: library/CustomImgCaptcha/addon-FaceBookRegCaptcha.xml
    Doesn't work I get an Error: Please enter a valid file name. The requested file could not be read.

    OK, I do have a folder called CustomImgCaptcha at
    I have /TAC/CustomImgCaptcha
    BUT the addon-FaceBookRegCaptcha.xml is not in that folder.

    Do I need to upload the FacebookRegCaptcha into the TAC folder then?
    The instructions do not mention anything about this.
    Using 1.2
    Thank you,

    You can love it wherever you want. :ROFLMAO:
    It should normally be in the /library/TAC folder tho'.

    So I could uninstall it and move it.
    But it sounds like it's OK where it is then?
    Thank you so much!

    I assume TAC FaceBookRegCaptcha 1.0.0 should be disabled/uninstalled when installing (upgrading to) this?
  19. tenants

    tenants Well-Known Member

    Yep, uninstall FaceBookRegCaptcha completely (you can then remove it)

    @tenants, do you mean to physically remove the directories associated with it also or just remove from the ACP. "Completely" tends to indicate to me that it's the directory structures also that need to be removed.
