Require a specific code on registration screen


New member

I would like to add an input box on the registration screen that asks the user for their "forum code" which we will send to them once they purchase. The thinking is this should prevent nearly all spam registrations. The code would be the same for all users.

Is this currently possible? If not, any suggestions?

Is it the pinnacle of security? Nah. Is it enough to stop posts about big muscles and cheap russian clothes? I think so :D

The bigger point is that there will be no need for a DB of codes, so verification is simply if X = 1234, proceed, else fail

The issue you will face is most bots will report back the code once they crack it to a database, so you would probably end up needing to change it on a daily basis.
