My site that was getting hammered is no longer getting the hotmail signups after adding the honeypot & changing reg slug. Guess this needs to be done on all membership sites. Just got a message from another client with the same problem.
So did the ninjafirewall work well? Any negative side effects?
Have a site started getting a few hundred per day so changed the slug & used the math captcha instead of si captcha and added the honeypot to the functions. Still getting a few subscribers all with hotmail address’s.
I just had to delete and re-create my “register” page, still used the same name/slug but when I saved the new page for “register” in the buddypress pages admin it then used my buddypress reg page as I wanted.
Cool that worked to remove subscribers. By default I think PMPro seems to add all members with the role of subscriber by default also so I need update so it will add the members as a different role. I think in S2member you can specify the roles for new members where you cannot in Paid Membership Pro?
I found a few older posts on how to update the roles of new members in PMPro so will give that a try.
Does anyone with experience with both membership programs think I should be using S2member instead?
