How to stop spam registrations (HELP!!)
I am being inundated with spam registrations (hundreds).
Running a network install of WP version 3.7.1
Running BuddyPress 1.8.1 and bbPress 2.5
Very generic settings, as far as I know.
Forums are enabled (it’s a primary purpose for the site)
I disabled registrations using “Registration is disabled” from the network admin settings/network settings and the spam registrations continue.
My search of the forum did not seem to bring clarity to this problem (I’m probably missing something) except that it’s a known problem.
Side issue: viewing users from the network admin section, there is a category called “Users with Unconfirmed Email Address (7168)”. When I click on the link I get “You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page”. Does anyone know how to view this category. I’d like to delete them.
