    Before I downloaded the plugin Wang Guard, I did not have any issues with Buddy Press. After I downloaded Wang Guard and accidentally made myself a spammer, I couldnt log in anymore to admin. I have deleted Wang Guard with my host file manager, but still the problem persist. After deactivated all plugins and activating them one by one to see what is the problem, I found out the cause is Buddy Press. However, I need Buddy Press in my site. Please advise thank you.

    Wordpress version: 3.7.1
    Buddy Press Version: the latest one cos I always update it

    How do you do that? I want both Wangguaard and Buddypress, but it seems that both of them dont agree with each other ever since I accidentally marked myself as a spammer in Wangguard. Thanks so much.

    idk whnever i have accidentally marked someone as a spammer i just un-mark using wangguard they will then show up as forced green status maybe that doesn’t unmark them in buddypress’s eyes. perhaps @jconti knows more.

    create a new user in admin and change that account to admin. then logout. login with new admin account and mark your other account not a spammer in wanguard

    I tried creating another admin, but there is no option to unmark any admins as sploggers. I guess Buddypress and Wang Guard dont work well together.

    Thanks, I have uploaded the plugin to wordpress. But I didnt understand what you said earlier: “Log in with new admin and visit profile page of old admon then in admin bar there will be link to unmark”

    Where do i find the profile page?

    Hi @ubernaut

    Yes, if WangGuard detect a user as splogger and you mark it as not splogger, he is flagged as “Checked Forced”. That will force to WangGuard to accept that user as good user at your WordPress.

    But if you mark a user as Splogger, and then, you mark it again as Not Splogger, he is flagged as Checked user and he is removed from WangGuard database.
