    What, its not a css issue, I don’t want to hide 3/4 of the video, I want to not include videos at all. And I was under the impression recent posts was a buddypress widget?

    Every morning I wake up, delete about 30 blogs and then delete the users. I will just learned how to check the access logs (I have my own server and just figured out how to check them lol) so I will pay attention to them and see what I can find out.

    I really like the idea of editing the plugin to make blog registrations require a password. I will take a look at the code but I already know its out of my league as well. Perhaps I will contact him on the main WP site and see what he thinks. That seems like it would be a useful plugin on its own.

    Thanks for the response.
    - I already changed the reg. slug in wp-config.php (this would do the same thing correct?
    -That plugin would be awesome if it only allows blog creation with a special password, I want anyone to be able to register. You actually limit people to register on your site if they have a password?

    WOW, I did the above mentioned items and I am still getting hammered with spam blogs. I have no idea what to do now, I am already making a sacrifice by taking away blog creation during signup.

    Any ideas of what I can do?

    hmmm, I don’t have email setup on my server. I have no experience with servers but have managed to learn enough to have my site up. I thought the point of mailFrom was to address the problem off servers not being configured correctly to send mail through WP?

    I have my own server, I heard this issue is related to my server not being setup correctly to send mail? If I had more details I may be able to fix it there.

    I didn’t notice the wp-signup.php, I am hopeful this will solve the problem, thanks!

    Deactivating plugins didn’t help. I have added the following items to .htaccess. The first rule is the problem but cookies for comments plugin says to add it to stop spam blogs.

    #Cookies for comments
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_COOKIE} !^.*XXXXXXXXXXXXX.*$
    RewriteRule ^wp-signup.php – [F,L]

    AND

    # BEGIN ANTISPAMBLOG REGISTRATION
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} POST
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} .wp-signup.php*
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !.mysite.com. [OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^$
    RewriteRule (.*) http://die-spammers.com/ [R=301,L]
    # END ANTISPAMBLOG REGISTRATION

    I was just curious, wondering if spammers could use these extra signup files.

    You could use “BuddyPress Auto Group Join” plugin to force members to join an existing groups when they signup.

    With bad behavior it seems like you just trade spam signups for blocking real users. I had it installed for 1 day and keep getting messages from legit users getting blocked. CANT WIN.

    Does anyone know how to test the .htaccess change (found here http://buddypress.org/community/groups/how-to-and-troubleshooting/forum/topic/buddypress-spam/?topic_page=3&num=15#post-69499)?

    I can’t seem to get it to redirect when I test it.

    That was the original post I seen, but then I seen
    http://buddypress.org/community/groups/how-to-and-troubleshooting/forum/topic/buddypress-spam/?topic_page=5&num=15#post-74351
    and there was another version floating around some where that was slightly different. As you can see this version just has .register* and then domainName.*

    I wasn’t sure which was correct or how to check if its working. Have you ever successfully tested yours?
