Does anyone know of a plugin or mod to prevent spam bot from signing up? Such as questions and answer would be awesome as google recaptcha doesn't really do it

In your Admin panel navigate to: Admin Panel - Settings > Spam and Banning Tools, this tool may help you, there's a plugin but I haven't tried https://webhive.com....p?id_product=72 , there's another plugin but I don't recommend the 2-Step Verification Plugins https://www.ipragmat...ugin-anti-spam/

- I largely advise you to: Force new members to verify their e-mails, make your community invite only, create new profile fields and update them randomly, use Cloudflare if possible, I think these are the best ways to prevent spam signs-up.
