Filter User Registration Fields, Prevent Spambots
Hi BP Community,
I have a slightly urgent problem and could really use some quick advice. My site seems to have gotten large enough to attract a couple of the black hat seo scripts that automate user registrations. I’ve had to temporarily disable registration while I figure out a way to if not eliminate, at least reduce the number of these that get through. I looked into a couple of the Captcha programs, and ran into a problem.
* The captcha field was displayed on the registration page, but it’s contents did not affect whether a submitted registration was processed or not. It seems like some of the WordPress captcha options that are out there are not hooking into the right thing to filter BuddyPress registrations. I’ve seen some other recommended solutions add a filter to:
I wasn’t able to get this filter to actually stop the registration from proceeding, though. It seems a lot of the BuddyPress captcha related solutions out there were designed for WPMU, which used a different set of registration functions. I could really use a hand figuring out how to filter an extra level of human authentication into the registration process.
Thanks in advance,
