Not a spammer but marked as a spammer
I have 2 admin accounts, but although I kept seeing one in pink, with the implication it has been marked as spammer, I had not taken this seriously as I last used it years ago.
Today, because I need to use it, I reset the password and tried to log in but the user was blocked by Wordfence. I took measures to be allowed to log in and still with correct login, I could not, several times.
So using the main account, I looked at this other admin account’s profile only to see “This user has been marked as a spammer. Only site admins can view this profile.”
I even do not know how this user was marked so, probably mistakenly.
I saw another user in this forum was pointed to changing the status & under Extended Profile, where there’s “UserX has been marked as a spammer. All BuddyPress data associated with the user has been removed”, and status set to “Spammer”, when you try to set it to “active”, you get => “User could not be removed as spammer.” !!!!
I tried to get another user with the intention to at least change role to admin, but also mysteriously found this status, which cannot be reverted!!! No single idea how this status was arrived at. And even if it is, how come the admin cannot not remove one from the spammer status?
I’m using latest version of all plugins & WP.
I would very much appreciate your help.
