Profiles Being Made without Admin Notification

    Hi Everyone,

    Site’s up, but having a problem from time to time with a profile being made without the admin getting a notification. We can’t seem to duplicate it. Everytime we create a profile, the admin gets notified.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Ninh

    Do you mean that you have users being registered without the site admin getting notification of that? There are a couple of settings in Site Admin > Options that control this:

    Registration notification

    Send the site admin an email notification every time someone registers a blog or user account.

    Add New Users

    Allow blog administrators to add new users to their blog via the Users->Add New page

    The second setting might be the culprit. It allows people who are blog admins to create people and bypass the registration process. I haven’t tested to see if it also sends out an email to the site admin.

    Burt,

    Thanks for the reply. When myself, friends, or family create a profile to test the site, I always get an email as the administrator.

    But over the past few weeks, I’m getting individuals creating buddypress profiles and upone further research into my database, I track their email addresses back to health supplements, pharma drugs, and porn sites. I don’t receive an email notification when these buddypress profiles are made.

    Currently my settings are as follows, where the second choice with the “X” is selected.

    Disabled

    X Enabled. Blogs and user accounts can be created.

    Only user account can be created.

    Only logged in users can create new blogs.

    Wondering how can they create buddypress profiles, without me getting notifications?

    Thanks,

    Ninh

    you can check the members who made it through and on to the site without me being notified: http://ndcom.com/members/Garamoff/ and http://ndcom.com/members/poifyipsyhold/, since these two, I’ve had about 3 others like them whereby they make a buddypress profile and I don’t get the notification.

    the two members on my site that created buddypress profiles without me being notified are ndcom.com/members/Garamoff/ and ndcom.com/members/poifyipsyhold/, since these two, I’ve received about 3 other buddypress profiles where I, as the admin, didn’t receive notification.

    How is this possible and is there a remedy for it?

    Thanks,

    N

    So I posted the same support topic over at wpmudev.org and they advised me to ask you about this issue, whereby Andrew stated:

    “Sounds like they’ve figured out how to bypass a step or two in the signup routine.

    Probably best to mention this on the buddypress forums so they can look into it.

    Thanks,

    Andrew”

    Does this help?
