    In Xenforo's admin panel, spam page, there's an option to set up your forum with various anti-spam providers, including projecthoneypot.org.

    I registered my forum.website.com domain on projecthoneypot for the key. At the end of the process I realized the php script/page will only load on the alternative main.website.com that we're supposed to protect.

    Have you enabled honeypot on your forum(s)? Which domain/subdomain did you enter on the honeypot site? I don't know if it would be secure to register it on main.website.com?

    FYI, it took me some time to find the install location:
    It's at
    I moved the file to
    and it loaded and worked at http://forum.website.com/honeypot.php

    You don't need to setup the actual Honeypot for Xenforo only using the API key should be enough
