Search Results for 'spam'
I keep getting spammed! I get users making groups and forums! They are able to pass my captcha! Any help would be appreciated thanks!
Topic: Forgotten Password
I meet 2 worry with buddypress:
1) When a person clicks on “forgot password” an email and sent and arrives in the spam message in the form of SPAM
2) When she click on the link sent by email to reset are password it sends her to the wordpress login page and does not ask her to change password or whatever
Sorry google translation
Topic: Manual User Activation
In the past I had many problems with spam accounts, so I want users to be activated manually. When they create their account they shouldn’t be allowed to post or reply and after activation they should have normal member permissions. Does anyone know how to achieve that?
Topic: PM Spam
Sorry if this has been answered before. I promise I tried to search the forums first. I saw similar situations, but not exact.
Twice now, I’ve had a user register on the site, verify their email and even upload a profile image… Then they are somehow able to send one of those hokey Nigerian Prince messages to every member of my online community of thousands of members. The entire thing seems more of a manual process for the spammer than an automatic one, but I guess I don’t know. For me, this is humiliating.
1) How is this spammer doing this?
2) How can I stop it from happening?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!!
As soon as I activated BuddyPress in WordPress.com, my blog followers started receiving a bunch of notification emails about new posts on random topics such as [account] [members] [register] [login] etc.
I had to deactivate BuddyPress as it started spamming my blog email followers. Any idea why this happened and what caused it?
I really have 2 issues
I am new to this plugin and need some help, please!
Ok, so when someone successfully completes their registration they receive the following onscreen notice e.g.
You have successfully created your account! To begin using this site you will need to activate your account via the email we have just sent to your address.
I am trying to customise the notice to say e.g.
You have successfully created your account! To begin using this site you will need to activate your account via the email we have just sent to your address. If you do not see your email in your inbox, please check your junk or spam folder account!
To attempt to make the customisation, in file manager, I follow the path: httpdocs/wp-content/plugind/buddypress/bp-templates/bp-legasy/buddypress/members/register.php. I add the additional text in the PHP file but the changes do not show up on the front end. Can anyone please advise me on this?
The issue I am having is the fact that I don’t have access to the register page unless I attempt to create an account. The register page somehow redirects to the home page even though the Buddypress settings are set to register.
Thank you in advance
I’m new to buddypress. I am testing adding a new user. The new user doesn’t receive an activation email. After several hours. Still no email. None in junk or spam folder. Nothing. I heard I might have to set up WP Mail SMTP. Is that required?
Topic: Problem with hotmail
I have a pretty big problem. It turns out that I have BuddyPress installed on my website a news magazine. The problem is that when someone registers as a new user if their email is hotmail the confirmation message does not arrive, but it does not even reach the spam tray, it does not arrive. I’ve tried with Gmail and it’s going well.
For this reason I requested help to support from my hosting provider. They told me that the problem was in one of the mail headers that BuddyPress sends to activate the account and it is this:
The mail includes this header that is correct, what is not good is that within <> there is nothing, there should be an email or a link to unsubscribe. As they tell me in support it is very likely that this incomplete header is causing Hotmail to completely discard this email.
Can you help me solve this problem? There are many users who use Hotmail, so the problem is quite serious.
Thank you very much and best regards
Now that wannguard is inactive/not supported (I think), I have been trying to find how I can stop spam sign ups.
Wangguard was really good as a feature I really liked about it was the fact that you could set a custom anti spam question unique to your site. This for me seemed to stop all spammers from signing up and seemed to out do captcha as even with recpatcha there are programs and services that allow bots to fill those out but with a custom question its unique to your site.
Is there some plugin or code that doesn’t need updating and is what it is.. that would allow me to add custom question and then add akismet support and that should be enough to protect my site?
—Also would like the plugin or code to be trusted, widely used and updated as according to wordfence even plugins in the wordpress repository are being exploited by hackers (seems some hacker is going around buying plugins to exploit).
Help would be great! Thank you.
