Re: Spammers attacking, help!

@imjscn Jenny have you tried googling on ‘nofollow’ links? before asking Andrea_r how to do this or better still have you implemented my advise earlier in the thread for a robots.txt file implementation? and other tip/s?

It’s important to tell us what you have tried other than add plugins – not everything is solvable using plugins and this aspect really requires a few approaches as has already been said.

Did you track down any of the threads on this support forum that go into great detail on the various approaches one can take, a good one is to set a referrer trap in .htaccess so that direct linking to the register page is prevented and register will only accept requests that have an accompanying referrer in the header that comes from your site – mentioned in one of those threads with example code iirc
