I have downloaded the two files bbantispam.php and and bbas_config.php to my provider. (With no change)
I have modified my url test.htm by including one line at beginning. See below
I have downloaded test.htm to provider
When I test test.htm I see no change. I can enter as before and I receive
an e-mail. What is wrong ?

Hello Nick,

the form is processed not in "test.html", but in "/cgi-bin/form.cgi", therefore changes in the former file brings nothing. And I'm afraid that the latter file isn't programmed in PHP, therefore Advanced Textual Confirmation can't help you.

Hello Oleg,

Thanks for your quick reply. I was already under the impression that your tool could not solve my problem and that of the many people who use the same method as I do. I will contact my internet provider to see if they can help us. Thanks.
