Re: How to control spam registration?

Thanks everyone for the tips and tricks, I’ll be checking this page again!

It’s strange but the moment I upgraded to WP2.9.2 and BP 1.2 spam started again.

Previously, I just added SI Captcha and I went from getting 10-20+ spam registrations to none. I added WP-hashcash now and I’ve only had one registration since.

I’ve just disabled the blog registration on the signup page, hopefully that’ll help too.

By the way, there’s also a meta tag in the header of many templates :

<meta name="generator" content="WordPress 2.9.2" />

Removing that may help too….
