Options for registration for blogs
I need a little advice with relation to the spam questions that have been going forth.
I’m about to launch our redesigned site which after some debate, looks like instead of using groupblog due to incompatibility, I’m going to use a separate blog for community features. I’ve already added the blog and set the bp_root_blog as that blog so now it works great. I can use a standard wordpress theme for the home blog and a bp enabled blog for my community site. Here’s where it gets a little tricky.
I need to know the best and most secure way to set up registration and to sync users across to the community blog. Right now, I have around 1300 members on our main blog that was converted from standard wordpress and I need to get them into the other blog. I found an article that suggested the code to put into wpmu power tools but that only seems to add around half of the users to the other blog before dying and I’ve already edited all the relevant values in my php.ini to extend this. Also, I need to know what the best way would be to handle registration? I’m planning on using the gigya plugin and it works well on the wp side of things, but after some of the reading about spam and splogging, I don’t know if it would be better to turn off registrations on wp and force them to register via bp on the sub blog and have it auto add to the main blog, or whether I should allow them to register on my main blog via wp-login and then have it sync to my community site. I’m not going to allow users to create blogs so there should only be two blogs to worry about unless groupblog gets updated in which case that will handle the other permissions to the blogs. Any ideas?
