Topic: Mark as Spam Admin Screen
Mark as Spam Admin Screen
Site Administrators on non-Multisite installations can now perform spam actions from Dashboard > Users > All Users just like Super Administrators of Multisite installations have been able to do.
Can someone explain what marking as spam does to the user account? Is the user able to login still? Are their messages removed? Is this similar to a ban? Should you leave it or delete the account? I am curious if anyone knows exactly what marking as spam does.
I’m running a BuddyPress installation with over +50 000 members. At the time of writing, my versions are BP2.9 & WP4.8 While checking my log files I noticed a slow query log entry that pointed to a BuddyPress query which I’m very concerned about. It generates a subquery with a
where INclause with over +50 000 user IDs. I’m more concerned because my user base is growing and that number could become 75k or 100k. Here is a sample
1 = 1
AND u.ID IN (
spam = 0
AND deleted = 0
AND user_status = 0
AND u.ID IN (
1, 3, 13, 30,........,50000 <- Problem Area, +50000 IDs passed here
AND u.ID IN (
user_login LIKE '%%'
OR user_login LIKE '%%'
OR user_nicename LIKE '%%'
OR user_nicename LIKE '%%'
Ref: Query is generated in this file file:buddypress/bp-core/classes/class-bp-user-query.php method:BP_User_Query::prepare_user_ids_query
- Is that something I should be concerned about?
- Is this something I should consider fixing with this hook $sql = apply_filters_ref_array( ‘bp_user_query_uid_clauses’, array( $sql,
Topic: registration and activation
I would like visitors to my website to be able to create posts in my forum without having to login, but with a capture to avoid spam. As it is now you need to be logged in and you need to register, when someone tries to register the receive a message they they will receive an activation e-mail which never comes. As a result a forum that a few months ago received posts almost daily has not received a post in months. Here is the link http://tenniselbowracquet.com/forums/topic/tennis-racquets/

Topic: bp_activity user count
We’re getting a long running query from:
SELECT COUNT(user_id) FROM wp_bp_activity WHERE component = ‘members’ AND type = ‘last_activity’ AND user_id NOT IN (28974,30626,50225,66864,77511,78706,107191,110540,110849…
primarily because we have a large number of users who have been identified as spam and the userids in the NOT IN clause continues to grow.
This is generating a KILLED QUERY and is impacting performance:
[Wed Sep 13 09:44:06.049075 2017] [:error] [pid 21222] [client 255.155.155.33:13537] KILLED QUERY (35798 characters long
Would it be possible to rewrite this query so that it is inclusive and filters out the unwanted userids instead of it being the exclusive query that it is now?
This query is in wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-members/bp-members-functions.php:762)
We are using WP version 4.7.5 and buddypress version 2.8.2
Hello! I have a problem on my site! I’m the administrator of the site and the Buddy Press network, I’m tagged as a spammer in a baddy press. Other users can not register themselves, although the mood on the site is worth what anyone can register. All I register myself, in a baddy press automatically become spammers! How do I fix this problem?
Topic: How can I edit this page?
I’m using WP 4.8.1, and BP Version 2.9, and WP All in One Security 4.2.8. (WPSecurity).
Website in question: gunnyret.com
I’ve just edited the BP email that arrives to the new user so that it no longer says to click on the link to activate, because I have settings in WPSecurity set to force me to activate new registrations.
This step has nearly completely killed spam registrations, which I’m very happy about, but now my problem is this.
Once those new users submit their request to register, they are redirected to a webpage that says,
“Check Your Email to Activate Your Account. 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.”
How do I turn that redirect off, or edit it to reflect what I changed in the BP email? The current process is confusing my new users.
*I’ve searched for that “redirect page” in an effort to do this, but it’s not showing up – even as a hidden page.
I apologize in advance. I’m a novice website builder/designer with no coding experience to speak of.
Thank you, kindly!
P.S. Here’s a screenshot of the redirect page
I’m using BP 2.8.2, WP 4.8.
My (temp) website is demo.vsenashi.com it’s in Russian.
I’m not getting BP notification emails. Registration is half WP and half BP, so I get emails, but all other activity BP notifications (messages, comments and new activity) – nothing.
I have already checked spam folder.
I tried Check Email plugin – sends emails.
I tried WP mail SMTP plugin – not working with SMTP, but working with PHP mail(). So I configured this option and still no email notifications.
What can I try to do to solve the problem? I saw many topics about it, but most of them still not solved.
Hey. So with the way I’m using Buddypress Groups (no forums), I essentially want to be the only admin for security/spam (invites etc) purposes.
A user will request a Group for them and their friends. I create said Group, and make them a mod.
However, this mod privilege doesn’t seem to give them much power. I’d optimally like to allow them to change the group picture, description, maybe even delete comments, etc. Not *total* admin control (aka deleting the group, sending invites) – but somewhere in the middle I suppose?
Is this at all doable with some modifications, or an extension?
Legitimate users are unable to register at the site as no mail is sent for verification link. But spammers who may not complete sign up ?get verification and registered.How can this happen? Notifications and contact forms work nicely. Is it different email set ups in buddypress causing this issue?
But wordpress (after deactivating buddypress) alone can send the verification mail.
I tried with WP-SMTP mail plugin change. Tried to configure host environment. But failed. Can someone analyze?
Thank you in advance.
Topic: No notifications for replies
I am getting notifications for everything apart from replies to posts/comments. I have checked and I am all checked on everything as being Admin I need to keep an eye on things…really strange.
And I have checked my spam box.
I am using the latest WP and BP.
Topic: Turning off emails
Hi, according to the FTC’s webpage for the Can-Spam Act, there are some legal requirements for commercial emails. Because of this, I want to disable buddypress emails, at least for now. Is there a way to do this besides unticking the activity and notifications in the buddypress settings? Also, can you do this while still preserving some non-commercial emails such as those for password-resets and account activation?
Thank you for your help,

Topic: All users marked as spammed
All users in my website has been marked as spam,
Even new users are marked as spam automatically
how do i unspam them and bring back the datas
Wordpress version 4.7.3
Buddypress version 2.8.1
I found an issue on a buddupress activity single post.
Step1:- UserA create an activity/post on group.
Step2:- UserB creates a replay on the UserA post.
Step3:- WP admin changes user status of UserB as spam.
Step4:- Then activity stream doesn’t display the replay that is created by the userB. But the single page of that activity/post shows the reply of spam(UserB) user post.
Please help me to solve the issue.
