    How can I insert extra field in registration in 1.0.6
    like, What is 2 + 4 = 6
    to avoid fake registrations
    or is there another way of doing this?

    I am not familiar with version 1.0.6. I only have used 1.1.0 and 1.1.1.

    Are you being attacked with spam bots registering on your site? A few people have been complaining recently about getting a lot of spam bots registering on their site.

    I just recently read the spam bots can solve math problems and they will get by that solution.

    The old captcha is to simple for bots to figure out but, there is a mod for it that I tested yesterday over 200 times and it stopped every attempt from spam bots trying to register on my site. Try this captcha modification in post #66 in this link Dahlsvarehus.com's Captcha Mod Update and see if it helps.

    ripper, I am glad to hear that that mod worked. That Captcha mod was very well needed to replace that old basic one that webid had that was so easy for the spam bots to read.
