Phbb - add captcha

apps

#1

I have phbb installed and don’t know how to add new categories to the forum. I would also like to add the captcha for security purposes. I cannot see this information in the documentation.

Advice appreciated

You need to log in, and then click on Admin Control Panel (ACP) at the bottom. From there, the goodies are in the left column:
General Tab -> CAPTCHA: Visual Confirmation Settings
Forums Tab -> edit “Your First Category.” I think once that’s done and has forums assigned to it, you’ll be able to add other categories.

Thanks for your reply.
It was really helpful.
Looks like by default the captcha is on and categories are now sub forums.

To create an oldschool category, create a forum and turn posting off, then select it as the parent of the fora you’d like it to contain.
