Hey guys. I actually need help with my newly set up forum, and there are a couple of...broken security features that have been hindering me. Here, take a look.

It should be noted that I'm using the theme 'Verque'; http://mods.mybb.com/view/verque

My first problem; None of my users can register without being identified as a spammer. I've tried it on multiple computers with multiple usernames, passwords, emails, etc. It always denies their registration.

I need help identifying why this happens.

Not only that, it seems as if users cannot edit their accounts, because they are unable to select a date of birth privacy

Okay, let's try to change the bio. Except...Date of Birth privacy is just blanked out. How can I disable this in the first place?

Alright, let's submit our changes.

Whoop. There it is.

Not sure where else to post this, but if anyone can help me remedy this, that'd be great.
Did you have these issues when you used the default ( or another 1.8 compatible ) theme ?
For starters you need to disable Stop Forum Spam because it is broken in 1.8.0. I believe this will be fixed in 1.8.1.

You also need to use a 1.8 compatible theme. The theme you linked to is not.

How do I do this?

ACP >> Configuration >> Stop Forum Spam >> Check Registrations Against StopForumSpam.com? >> Set to "NO"
