    @ravan – I would think multi-site is the best way to go for this. Use like a new-blog-defaults plugin to auto make their new sites a certain theme and have pre-populated content to make it easy.

    Of course you would setup a single site blog, give each new user editor privelages and manually create a page for each person.. I did that once.. I think the way multi-site seperates things is a little less messy – and a “full blown multi-site” is not that big a deal these days – back in the early wpmu days it was a lot – these days adding the couple lines of code and telling wp to put the new blogs -err “sites” into a subfolder is not much to deal with.

    I have found as long as you use a blog defaults plugin to set a bunch of settings for each one automatically (users must be logged in to comment) – stuff like that – you can save server resources and not have to worry too much about users who are not paying attention to comments spam and the like.

    Hey guys,

    I been at this for a week now… one of my sites is getting spam links on the activity page, I added captcha to the sign up, require email confirmation to sign up, etc. and still getting people posting spam links.

    I would like do disable the links from the activity stream complete and return text only.

    I see that the content is outputted by bp_activity_content_body(), but I cant figure it out how to strip the “a” tags =(

    Thank you!

    Problem with that is that you can only delete groups 20 at a time. The spam got bad, I have over 4000 spam groups and I need them all to go at once, I don’t exactly have time to repeat the same process over 200 times. I was asking about a measure to get rid of all of them at once.

    That’s massively outdated and doesn’t work, and I put the anti-spam into place after I noticed this and it works great. But that organizer is for very, very old versions of buddypress.

    I’ve been getting weird errors when trying to log an activity item via bp_activity_add():

    WordPress database error You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near '( user_id, component, type, action, content, primary_link, date_recorded, item_i' at line 1 for query INSERT INTO ( user_id, component, type, action, content, primary_link, date_recorded, item_id, secondary_item_id, hide_sitewide, is_spam ) VALUES ( 3163, 'members', 'new_member', '', '', '', '2015-07-16 15:47:00', 0, 0, 0, 0 ) made by require('wp-blog-header. php'), require_once('wp-load.php'), require_once('/srv/www/commons/current/web/wp-config. php'), require_once('wp-settings.php'), include('/themes/tuileries/functions.php'), bp_activity_add, BP_Activity_Activity->save

    As you can see, there’s no table name here. It should be INSERT INTO wp_bp_activities... or thereabouts. It looks like BP_Activity_Activity->save() is trying to access $bp->activity->table_name, but $bp->activity doesn’t have a table_name property at this stage. Instead, this is all that is in $bp->activity:

    
    BP_Activity_Component Object
    (
        [name] => Activity Streams
        [id] => activity
        [slug] =>
        [has_directory] =>
        [path] => /srv/www/commons/current/web/app/plugins/buddypress/
        [query] =>
        [current_id] =>
        [notification_callback] =>
        [admin_menu] =>
        [search_string] =>
        [root_slug] =>
        [meta_tables] => Array
            (
            )

            (
            )
    
        [adminbar_myaccount_order] => 10
    )

    Why isn’t there a table name here? How can I fix this?

    Hello! I’ve found myself with a small issue. I’m filled to the brim with spam groups and can’t figure out how to mass-remove them, is there some sort of way to do this? I’m using the latest stable versions of both WP and BP. My site is http://zeroimaginationproductions.com/

    Thank you!

    @kakumeionline – if your post had three links in it – it will be held for moderation and not appear unless someone approves it.

    If your post did not have three or more links in it – then I think akismet has flagged your ip addy as a spammer perhaps – and it got sent to the spam box.

    Sometimes adding certain words like “how to add a field for users to choose their S3X, and if they are L3sbian, G@y Trans – will keep a post from saving I think.

    Random thoughts from an end user – I don’t really know how the internals of this BP dot org really work (not a forum moderator or anything)

    So these are my guesses

    Hi, I still got a couple of questions about Buddypress.

    I use it on my website: http://www.everybodychallenge.nl
    1. when you fill in all fields at creating an account you get a new page says check your email
    2. when you check your email the email is in spam
    – How can i make sure it will not end up in spam?
    – In the email it says:
    Thanks for registering! To complete the activation of your account please click the following link:
    http://www.everybodychallenge.nl/my-ebc/activeer-account/4da867ed6f8b0a11629cb9f7e97d53a3/
    But the link doenst work at all, you get redirected to the homepage. And nothing happends.
    The account is not been activated so login doesnt work.

    what I want:
    1. Fill in all fields for registration
    2. Get a message on a new page, that registration was successful but Admin has to check and approve your request first before you are able to log in.
    3. Admin will get the activation email (not the customer)
    4. activation link has to work?
    5. When the new user is activated by Admin, send a email to new user/customer that his/her profile has been approved and is not ready to log-in also with his/her login data.

    Please is there anyone who can help me with this 1-5 point. I am pretty much a newbee on this.

    (I am using newest versions of both)

    I have spam plug ins working and that keeps the spam registrations to a minimum. I don’t see blog comment spam either as I have that all turned off. These are forum posts and definitely not blog posts.

    I’ll try Akismet

    Akismet should help get most blog comment spam , and it also has integration with both BuddyPress and bbPress.

    You shouldn’t need to disable the activity stream commenting – but try it.

    There are several plugins re bbPress spam, such as:

    yes I have commenting turned off

    The only thing I found is under Activity Stream, maybe that’s letting it thru? I don’t have comment spam anywhere else on the site, just forum topics.

    Here is the latest:

    I don’t have too big of an issue with registration spam and I manually activate users. My issue is anonymous spam comments on my forum posts. All the plugins I see are for registration. Is there some way I can stop the spam on my forum?

    with new servers, I try to use these two plugins:
    Have you tried “contact form 7″ or “si-contact form” plugins to see if your server allows wp to send emails?

    on some servers they both work to send an email to my admin email account – on some servers only one of those will work (without tweaking smtp settings and such)

    in my limited experience – if neither of those work – then I would write my server people and ask them if some kind of mod sec or php limiting setting that the server company sets would be preventing your wordpress install from sending email via php.

    There are other ways to get WP to send emails – but your server people will usually see something in the error log, or know that they have your account limited in some way that either they will change for you, or tell you that you need a different hosting plan in order to use features like that – since they are sometimes abused by the hosting account leasee, or spam / hack programs that hit unsecured php scripts.

    (I’m no expert, just had some experiences. I’m sure others know more about this than I do)

    btw I tried to sign up an account with your site, and used one of my non-gmail non-yahoo addys, which usually lets everything through (no spm filters and such) and I never got an email – so I would check with your host first.

    those are interesting – I’d like to add that anyone considering integrating those should pay close attention to the terms of service, privacy policies, usage restrictions, etc – most that I have found that are “free” either crash ~ 20 users, or are hosted on third party servers that are not in your own control – so reliability, and privacy, third party ads out of your control – stuff like that I always found (aside from quick chat, which runs on own server using sql database I think)

    to get a little fancier than quick chat, I have tried more then 50 free / freemium / and premium options out there.. but I had not seen that one pointed out at code canyon – I might buy it and try it to see how it works, unfortunately I have found that even most premium options fail with server load issues once about 20 people are chatting – especially if they use the same mysql that your wordpress is tapping into. I also need to find someone who can go over the code in that one to see how hackable it may or may not be – any suggestions for a security review person?

    If you can budget a couple hundred bucks you could get into:

    123flashchat, I can say that it is solid enough to keep running for months on end even with lots of chatters.. there is a wp integration kit avail for that premium program – but I have not tried it yet. The support is either really great, or no answer – but I think part of that is my email services auto-blocking stuff from a busy email server in hong kong – and some language barriers.

    Another premium option with will require a red5 media server or something similar is av-chat by nusoft – it has buddypress integration that I use – will pull in bp avatars into the chat room and such – it’s pretty solid, and lots of customization options.
    ( https://wordpress.org/plugins/avchat-3/ )

    I use these as single page chat rooms, not something site-wide on every page.

    @danbp or @moderators – I am pretty sure the comment two above which links “cards” is just purely seo link spam :(

    Hello,

    We receive lots of spam registrations and I need to see if a registration is genuine or a spam.

    I am looking for a way to be able to:
    1. See the extended profile fields of pending users
    2. To add the extended profile fields to the email admin receives for every registration.

    I will appreciate ideas of how can I do the above.

    Thank you

    hi @fox_black

    i’m pleased to see that you read the Codex. But sorry for your mention, there is also written a few words before: In BuddyPress 1.1 this all works with one click.

    And if not enough, the paragraph title is Introduction for Forums in BP 1.2+

    As of june 2015, current BuddyPress version is 2.3.1 and there is no forum included in BuddyPress, reason why you haven’t find any information.

    Further on Codex you can read:
    There are a couple of reasons why you might want to consider migrating to the bbPress plugin:

    bbPress is being actively developed; the “Discussion Forums” component in BuddyPress is retiring as of BuddyPress 1.7. The retired component will continue to work, but no new features will be incorporated by the BuddyPress team.
    bbPress has a bunch of cool features that BP Discussion Forums doesn’t: extensive moderation via the WP admin dashboard, topic splitting, revisions, spam management, favorites, subscriptions, and more.
    See: https://codex.buddypress.org/legacy/getting-started/using-bbpress-2-2-with-buddypress/

    If you want a forum aside BP you have to use a forum plugin and bbPress is recommended for that.

    Hey All – I’m working on a pretty good size BP community that also has a close integration with WooCommerce. In the last couple of weeks we’ve been slammed with new spam registrations, mostly thru a loophole in WooCommerce. I’m looking for a specialist with deep knowledge of BP, WC, & spam that could provide 1-2 hours of consulting to brainstorm and bounce ideas with. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks ya’ll!

    URGENT PROBLEM!

    I am having the same problem. I just logged on as the administrator to delete a user and the only user that showed up on the list was myself. The wierd thing is that when you look at the user count for all users, all users are there, however, clicking on that link still only brings up my user. I deactivated all of my plugins and one by one began activating them again. I got to the BuddyPress Version 2.2.3.1 and activated it and that is when I could duplicate the problem. This is only recent and I am sure that I did an upgrade recently. Sunday was the last time I logged in and there were no problems at the time. For the time being I have left the rest of my plugins deactivated and I would be happy to give you access if you need a password or username to get in. My site is http://www.putznutzcabinfever.com. For the time being, and for security purposes I will be reactivating a spam plugin and one that limits the menu. These are STOP SPAM and ULTIMATE USER. So, you can go back to deactivating all plugins when you look into it. I just don’t want to allow signups or public access to some of the pages.

    If I can help in any way, I will be happy to.

    I found this answer to this issue by: @donalyza. He said:

    “if you use phpmyadmin, you can easily export the 3 tables related to groups from site 1 and import them in site 2. phpMyadmin has natively import/export tools and avoids you to use an extra plugin to generate CSV or sql formated files.

    xxx_bp_groups
    xxx_bp_groups_groupmeta
    xxx_bp_groups_members

    xxx is the prefix you entered during the wp install. By default it is wp, but it is recommended to use another one. Spambots are too much in love with wp_ prefix. You’re warned ! :d”

    I just tried it and it worked, however I had to edit my prefix accordingly to the database prefix I was uploading it to. I used “Coda” to do this, but any similar program works. The site I exporting from had “wp_bp_groups_members” and I changed it to “qou_bp_groups_members” which was the new site prefix.
