Advice on a Pluggin to stop Spam accounts registering please?
I’m a new BuddyPress user. I’m using WP 3.5.1. I don’t what version of BP I’m using but I guess it will be the most recent. My website is http://www.whichinvestmenttrust.com
Before installing BuddyPress I used Akismet to block Spam accounts registering to comment on my WP site and this worked pretty well. I had hoped that this would work with BuddyPress too but I notice that since I’ve installed BP I have a lot of new members registering whom I am pretty sure are Spammers. I haven’t activated their accounts as a result. In fact I’ve hardly activated anyone’s for fear of allowing spammers in.
Either Akismet doesn’t work with BP or I haven’t configured it properly?
Does anyone have a suggestion for how I might manager this better? I have found a site recommending S2Member and I found someone else recommending I remove reference to BP on the default footer in WP.
