Merged How to protect my forum from spam

My fix for this is to eliminate the link button from the Boardcode above.

Edit administrator/components/com_kuenena/libraries/bbcode/editor.xml
I commented out the button for editor_code at approximately line 65, this will eliminate the editor toggle which allows direct html coding to be inserted.

Then I commented out the lines at approximately 87 to 107 to eliminate the buttons for image links, url links, ebay links, video links and map links.

Unfornately you need to make a note to remind you that when you upgrade the component these will be overlaid and you will need to re-apply the fixes.

Would be nice to have a parameter to allo/dis-allow these items.

These Joomla components, along with setting up Kunena security like Captcha and Stop Forum Spam (see the security tab in Kunena > Configuration > Security should make it pretty difficult for spammers to register.

Dear users,
I have a problem with Kunena forum, perhaps due to high activity of spam attempts.
The forum is safe with antispam and enable the administrator to enrollment, so you do not spam the forum. The problem is that the number of guest users is very high and the log file will show spam attempts with different ip.
This obviously involves reading the forum topics repeatedly and consequently an increase of the visits counter. How to solve the problem. Can you help me?

Do yourselves a favour:

If you are not using J! 2.5.9 now then take advantage of some added anti-spambot registration fixes in this new version.

I use various anti-spam systems to prevent spam from getting onto my forums, and they work very well. Occasionally, however, one still slips through, usually by being a human spammer that answers all the safeguards, etc.

I see there is an API setting for Stop Forum Spam under the Kunena Configuration - is there a way to report a post back to SFS as Spam, so that the offender can be flagged? If not, could this feature be added as a Moderator function, so that one could click a button to report the offender?

(I should note that other Joomla anti-spam extensions currently do not let you report spammers, either, so I cannot rely on them to let me do this.)

Thank you!
