Post subject: Spam Bots

Since updating to 9.1.1 my site has started getting bots posting.

I had been running 9.0.6.1 for 18 months with 0 posts, by using a bot trap that used to be in the wiki.

Since updating to 9.1.1 I have had bots running arround and spamming the public forums.

Can anybody explain why this might be happening since the upgrade?

Thanks.

The only bot trap I remember was for banning bots that don't follow robots.txt. Nothing to do with automated posting scripts.

You're allowing guest posts so anyone can automate a post.

did you accidentally overwrite your robots.txt and .htaccess without adding the bottrap changes?

I place the bot-trap directory in the robots .txt, but no changes to .htaccess. As the bot-trap instructions have been removed frm the wiki, i don't know what, if any changes need to be made.
