This is exactly what I have been trying to find an answer to. No one has seemed to provide a straight answer but this goes a long way. Thanks guys. I think I will reference this and work on this problem myself, too, and provide some feedback.
I think (not sure!) that one of the ways you can stop spam is to put required fields on the profile that utilize human input. Requiring fields like favorite color, or something where people have to actually input something may be helpful to slow down spam. At least, that’s a theory. Anyone have anything like that or provide some feedback on this theory?
Found the problem – it was plugin based.
I am using the Genesis theme and had a plugin called Genesis Tabs. This allows for you to have category posts tabbed on your front page and would have to be network activated in order to use it. At any rate, this was causing the issue. I am going to follow up with the folks at Studiopress and see if they have any solutions.
Hope this helps somebody!
Andrea_r, can you put that into English please? Pretend I’m a total newb.
I haven’t found a good solution yet. Heck, I can’t even figure out how to delete spam groups that are now popping up on my site.
The trouble with a social network is, you don’t want to seal it off and make it so that no one can sign up. That would defeat the purpose. But you have to have a way of confirming new members are who they are. Using some kind of program that would check a member’s sign up credentials would be nice. A passport of sorts. Any ideas there? Facebook connect could work, I guess.
I did the upgrade to my theme…but still have the same problem. Ideas?
I currently have WP 3.0.1 installed and I am using the default Buddypress Theme. I also have Buddypress version 126.96.36.199 installed.
It is weird because it shows my avatar when I make a comment on one of my other blogs on the site network, but it won’t show that avatar on the main site (where I have BP installed) in the “recently online” list or anywhere on the main site/buddpress install.
Here is what I mean:
Most of them work, like this profile:
So, not sure what is going on. I have no clue.
The URL should be something like this:
Except now, that image is broken, too.
This is precisely what I have going on right now – but only for my avatar. Anyone know the answer?
This is a great topic. I will be watching to see if there is a solution, too. Would love to migrate one of my old boards (over 80,000 posts) into a Buddypress enabled site.
@pcwriter and @Beck_B thanks! I am trying to find a way to add something to the adminbar of Buddypress that would allow members, when logged in, to write for their sites. At the same time, I don’t want the backend of sites exposed to members who are not writing for that site. Can’t seem to find a simple solution. Maybe these work.
And that old post is located where exactly? Cmon people – share!!!
