Buddypress 22.214.171.124 and WordPress MU 2.9.2
I am constantly getting attacked by Spam Blogs registering to my site and creating blogs.
I have done the following:
Modified the .htaccess file with the code that is supposed to stop them
Edited the fileds on my registration page
Changed my registration slug
Use the following Plugins:
2. Bad Behavior
6. WPMU Super Captcha
7. Invitation Code Checker
I also have required fields in my buddypress profile.
What’s happening is these spam blogs are signing up, but somehow bypassing all the required fields. When I look at their profile, the only field filled in is their username. How is this happening? Is there some sort of backdoor signup page that I missing?
When I go to try and signup and leave fields blank it won’t let me on my registration page. So this is just puzzling me.
I have all this protection, but there is a hole somewhere that they are squeezing through. I have googled wordpress spam blogs and followed all the steps in the guides and still, they get in. The only way to stop this is to de-activate people from joining. Which is not what I want to do. I want real people to join.
I eagerly look forward to more help on this.
