Default Receiving a lot of spam registrations

Hi,

My site is receiving a lot of spam registration since day 1. I am preventing some by blocking them via htaccess but it seems they just dont stop and they are counting everyday. How can I prevent this from happening?

You need to install captcha extension to Joomla registration form. You can find many extentions on JED.

I used plg_osolcaptchav to hack it for HP. But if to take into account recent release of Joomla 1.7, it's better to use those which are well maintained/updated by developers. For instance reCAPTCHA - very widespread or Captcha by Ideal
