Spam User Registrations despite multiple anti-spam

    Hi yall,

    Currently running WordPress, Buddypress & bbpress along with the following (3) anti-spam plugins:

    -Akismet
    -Stop Spammer Registrations Plugin
    -Si Captcha (in the registration form)

    These plugins have lowered the number of spam user registration however there are still a lot to the point where it is making my site very difficult to maintain. In addition, my site is mainly member-focused so reducing spam/fake members is a top priority.

    Any advice/plugin recommendations would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks

    hi @barney92

    I am using s2member and the designated register page is

    mysite.com/membership-signup

    I actually like the “membership-signup” part as it is- but do you think it is contributing to the spam?

    Are there some recommended keyword alternative that does not attract spam

    There seems to be multiple wordpress honeypot.

    Would you recommend this one? Though it has not been updated in years..

    I ma having the same problem. It started as soon as my new site was live (I just migrated servers at the same time as installing BuddyPress). I installed this honeypot https://wordpress.org/plugins/registration-honeypot/, and it helped a little, but I won’t be able to deal with this once I have real members registering since I can’t always tell who is real or fake.

    There’s got to be a better way. Or at least a better admin view of new users so I can screem them with more profile data.
