By default they are displayed in "REGISTER" tab -> "Captchas" table:
You can use auto-captcha services which will solve them automatically and you won't need to enter manually.
You can set-up auto-captcha services in "Settings" -> "Open main settings" -> "Captcha" -> "Auto-Captcha" tab or just click on "Captcha settings" button above the captcha table:
Recommended services are:
Uses real humans to solve the captchas (less errors - mostly none).
Supports all types of captcha (including ReCaptcha and ReCaptcha 2).
Supports random questions as well.
Payment 0.7-2$ for 1000 of captchas / questions.
You should set-up maximum bid in Anti-Captcha website. When there is a higher load the bid for captchas might get higher so if your maximum bid is very low Anti-Captcha won't have a person who could solve the captcha and you will see the captcha in program to enter manually.
The lowest bid possible is always used, the maximum might only get used on higher load.
You can check the [average] bid statistics in their website.
Also great anti-captcha service. Works with all types of captcha.
Solves captchas in software level (no real humans) so error rate can be higher.
Does not support random questions.
Does not support all types of captchas (does not support ReCaptcha at all).
One time payment (77$ at the moment [with discount] when using the buy button from program you will get a discount or use this link: Info & Buy).
Some types of captcha success rate is quite low (even quite popular) so you might see more errors when posting.
Even if captcha is solved the answer might be incorrect so you will see error when posting (this is normal).
Make sure to check Captcha Sniper documentation to run it correctly.
When enabled in themaPoster you will see captcha "cudio" sent to Captcha Sniper if everything is fine. You can quickly disable and enable to make this test if needed.
It's recommended to use Anti-Captcha (AntiGate) service as a fail-over if Captcha Sniper is not able to solve the captcha at all.
You should use auto-captcha service because most forums have captcha on register page. They expire after some time and it's usually very hard to enter all captchas in time manually.
Save the Google account (in "Settings" -> "Open main settings" -> "Captcha") for ReCaptcha to show better and easier to read images (usually just some numbers instead of wavy letters).
If you choose not to use auto-captcha service you might want to enable in captcha settings -> "Automatically switch and focus to 'Captcha' when captcha needs to be entered" (enabled by default) and decrease processes limit setting in "General" settings.
When entering answer to random question (manually or by Anti-Captcha) the program by default will ask you if you want to save that answer. This can be changed in captcha settings. The saved answer will be used automatically next time if website (forum / blog) has the same question (so you won't need to enter it any-more).
If using Anti-Captcha it's recommended not to change that option to "Always save". Sometimes answers from auto-captcha service might be incorrect if person who entered it misunderstood the question. You can also delete incorrect answers from database if saved by accident in captcha settings -> "Questions" tab.

How to add email
Email must be added if you want the account confirmation links to be visited automatically which are sent to email.
If you don't need that you can skip this step and use any other email, but you will need to confirm all accounts manually.

Enter email address.
You can enter full email address. Then "@domain.com" will be selected automatically.
Click "Add email" button.
Email will be added and appear in the list. You will also be able to choose the email when registering.

How are account confirmation links in emails visited
Added emails are being checked for unread new email messages based in specific interval.
You can adjust the days which email is considered new and checking interval in settings.
The program fetches all new email messages and if sees any account confirmation links, those links are visited automatically.
If for some reason error happens when trying to visit a link (forum was offline) you can later select all needed emails and press on "Visit links in emails" button (only account confirmation links are visited and others ignored):
You can view the fetching information and links visited in the "EMAIL" tab -> "Email log" on the right.
All fetched emails can be seen in the emails table and messages previewed by selecting any email.
Time left until next check for new emails is shown in "EMAIL" tab -> on bottom left. You can also check for new emails now if really needed.

About register errors
When you try to register to website an error may occur.
These errors always generate an error file.
You can easily open specific error file by just double clicking on the status in the register status table with an error.
You can also select multiple statuses and press on "Open status file in browser" button to open all at once:
Register error file is a simple html file - the response of the website.
It's opened in your browser and you can see the error message of the website.
It might look something like these examples:
Overall errors may vary a lot and they depend on specific website.
If error is related to bad email / IP address then you should retry with different email and / or use proxy.
When registration is successful the success file is also generated. You can open it to check if everything was fine.
How to retry errors
You can and should retry basic errors (username taken, incorrect captcha entered, etc.).
You can check the error message from website as described in 3.2. chapter above.
To retry errors select all needed statuses and press "Retry" button:

4. General stuff
Meaning of two rectangular indicators at the bottom
At the bottom on the left you can see two rectangular shapes:
The first one, means the number of error files in the folder.
You can open the folder by simple clicking on it.
Usually you don't need to open the folder and see those files. What you usually do is double click on the failed status and it opens the file with error automatically in your browser.
More about those failed status errors in 3.2 - "About register errors" chapter.
The second shows number of success files in the folder. It's similar to errors files.
Tips on selecting statuses / emails and items from other lists
Statuses / emails / etc. are displayed in the simple list.
To select a single item just click on the name.
There are few ways to select multiple items:
Hold down CTRL key and click on items you want to select.
Hold down SHIFT key to select a range of items.
Press on single item, then press CTRL+A to select all items.
Use the "select all" button (bottom left in the screenshot) to select all items.
Use special search and filter field at the bottom:
Just type the name or part of the name you want to filter and all items containing the searched string will be filtered.
In some lists you can also use it for filtering by specific website's type. For example: type in 'phpBB' and all websites of type phpBB will be filtered from current list view.
There is special search and filter keyword "NOT". Must written at the start all uppercase. Will filter everything not containing words after it.
There is special search and filter keyword "OR". For example: text1 OR text2.
You can also enable in "Settings" -> "List search as selector" and then all filtered items will be automatically selected.
Let's take a look at search and filter possibilities in all lists
You can filter by
Special filter terms
URL, type, email, username, password
to, from, folder, subject, message
You can find general settings in "Settings" -> "Open main settings" -> General" tab.
Processes limit - the number of how many websites are registered at the same time. You should keep in mind that after one website is registered the process closes. If limit is reach the statuses are simply put in the queue. Don't set it too high or you might experience "out of memory" errors.
Timeout - seconds which indicates that website was unresponsive. Usually the default value of 6 works fine. If you have very slow internet and seeing a lot of "read timeout" errors you might try to increase the value of this setting.
A lot of elements in the program has a little tooltip pop-up box with information.
All buttons with just an icon has it, also a lot of fields, table rows or cells and other things.
To view the message simply mouse over an element and don't move for 1 second.
Clean-up some of the statuses from "REGISTER", "EMAIL" tables when they are not needed anymore.
They do take some of the memory (RAM).
Some other features:
The program has standard shortcuts F1 to open FAQ / Tutorials page and F2 to open the forum.
You can view all keyboard shortcuts in "Help" menu -> "Shortcuts".
You can right click on some lists / tables ["Register" / "Email" tables] for useful options.
Make sure to be familiar with settings. Not everything is mentioned in this FAQ because a lot of them are self explainable.
There is menu under "Help" -> "License" where you can see the license information and copy the license key fast when needed.
At the bottom there is number (which means days the license is valid for) and two buttons: first one just opens the same "Help"->"License" window. Second - opens page in browser with extending information.
The number at the bottom becomes yellow when less than 10 days left until expiration date and red when less than 5 days left.
When less than 3 days you will see a small information message with reminder to extend.
