Register vs wp-signup : passwords vs signup question
Hi all, to prevent splogs for a bit, I used a smal plugin called signup_question, which lets you set a simple question (is fire hot or cold) and checks the answer.
The BP ‘register’ page does not ‘use’ this plugin somehow, so I used the (renamed, which really stops splogs) wp-signup.php page instead. But I just noticed that with BP enabled, no PW is sent when using wp-signup.php.
Which is annoying for the user as they click the activation link and then are asked to log in using the pw they ues to register, but alas, no pw was entered at the time
So they have to reset the pw, etc etc etc. User will be gone on vacation by then…
The new BP register is much better as it asks for a PW. But without sign-up question or option to rename, I am afraid that splogs will be pouring in soon..
So my questions to determine the best action to make sign ups easy but splogs difficult:
- why won’t the WPMU sign-up question plugin work on the BP register page? Is there a way to fix that?
- Can the register page be renamed? If so, which file(s) and what other (internal) links?
Thanks in advance,
