I don’t understand the difference between users and members. We have thousands of spam users and it’s not possible to mark them as spam either when we delete them. It feels like they have a negative effect on our site, but maybe I can just leave them there?
The spam comment by “panlong” is still here after 2 weeks and 5 days…This says a lot about BuddyPress I think. We have started up a new site with BP, still not ready, but I think we’ll have to close it because of all spam members and spam activity, if we can not get help how to stop it. It’s UNBELIEVABLE how much spam we get. Three persons had made 100 membership each as well!!!
This Akismet plugin is for comments, but this is not so much needed as you can have comments with moderation.
I really think spam protection should be included from the beginning in the BudyPress plugin!
Another issue as well is that someone made a group without showing who created it. It doesn’t show up in the activity stream, even if I filter “created a group” either.
Something else, the page forums doesn’t show up. It says:
The forums component has not been set up yet.
What do I need to do?
