I build a forum last year and still have it somewhere hanging around. the reason I pulled it is because of all the spam posts on there and maoderating it was becoming a pain in the bum.

I know realise these posts may have come from a spam bot. Is there anyway to cut down on spam or zap it altogether?

I want to run a small invitation forum with no link from my main site. I have many people to fill it, I just don't want it to take over my day and have to spend all my time moderating it.

Thanks for any advice

Lock it down and personally approve or deny every new member.

I did not know you could do this, I will have to look into it. I thought the only way was they registered and that was it.
