How to handle spam registrations in ver 1.6.1
I have had several spam registrations on my site (in spite of SI Captcha Anti Spam plugin) which is OK but earlier versions of Buddypress had an option under “Admin Options” called “Mark as Spammer”. But now I don’t see that in 1.6.1.
Now in 1.6.x we have “Edit Member” for admins and there’s a link called “User Capabilities” which when clicked takes me to a page saying “Oops! This link appears to be broken.” Now I have to delete the spam accounts and don’t have any option to mark spam or having registrations auto-detected as spam which used to happen earlier. Though many genuine registrations were being detected as spam also in ver 1.5.x.
One of my members is now not able to login because she is being asked for an activation number and I don’t know how to help her . I have changed her password and I am able to login from my computer to her account though but she is still facing the same problem. We just get a link in the email to activate and I don’t know what exactly is the activation number.
Thanks in advance to all those who reply !!
