I have resolved this issue without ever finding out what caused it.
@henrywright thanks for your response.
I only just discovered it right now.
It was my hosting company 1and1 that caused the problem and it was because they had been hacked.
In response to this they cut off the option for anyone to log in to any WordPress/BuddyPress site they hosted for two full weeks.
Thanks you for the advice, very much appreciated.
I will try your suggested solution this evening.
Many thanks for your kind help.
If no one knows why I might be experiencing this problem can anyone suggest another member/forum plugin or application I could use instead of BBPress & Budypress?
I’ve seen Discus used on sites like the Daily Telegraph and have been wondering about switching to that. If only because I’m not technically capable enough to resolve issues like this and Discus looks well supported.
It is on the menu bar at the top left under where it has the Home, About menu options.
I have installed BP-Spamkiller though I haven’t made the community private. I’m still considering if that might be appropriate for me.
One issue I have is there is a link on my homepage to the ‘Spam-prevention’ page. I don’t think that should be there. Would this still work if I didn’t make that page public or I made it a sub-page of another page?
I have installed WangGuard too which seems to be working nicely.
There is a temporary issue at my host company 1and1 whereby ‘Access denied’ is displayed on my homepage. I mention this just in case you notice it. They assure me it will be resolved soon.
Thanks to you both for taking the time to respond.
Thanks for your help and your reply @BPhelp.
I think your suggested solution is perhaps a wee bit too technical for me. Is there a Pluggin that would suffice?
BP Spam killer is not available as a WP Pluggin. I’ve searched WP’s pluggins using many variants of the spelling/arranging of the term BP Spam killer.
I’m not at all clear of the implications of setting my BP community to private are.
I have attempted to learn more about all of your suggested solutions via the links and further Google searches but I haven’t succeeded in finding out enough information to leave me confident of proceeding.
I’m not sure enough of the terminology either. I think Slug might refer to a URL that has delved in to a website but I’m not sure.
