WordPress Business Themes › Forums › Version 7 Themes › DirectoryPress › Anti spam for registration
I would like to protect my DP website against spam registration. Currently I receive one every day (always with email from hotmail.com) and I suspect that this ‘community’ will grow faster.
I tried SABRE but it doesn’t seem to work with my DirectoryPress configuration.
If the plugin is activated submitting the registration causes this error:
Fatal error: Call to a member function get_error_code() on a non-object in /…/…/wp-content/plugins/sabre/classes/sabre_class.php on line 322
Can somebody help me with this issue?
Or recommend another registration captcha module?
Thanks in advance
I’m having the same issues, except as you mentioned it gets bad fast. I’ve been using directorypress on my Investment Property website for about 6 months now and while I love it, my registration spam is out of control. Just a few minutes ago I received my 1089th spam registration according to the message counter in my MAIL app.
I have a CAPCHA plugin and even some other plugin that simply has a picture of a smiley face (name escapes me) and neither work for the registration spam. It’s like they are getting past the DirectoryPress registration screen and to a backdoor of wordpress or something.
Anyone else know how to handle this?
Using and loving DirectoryPress on my US Real Estate website and in the process of setting up my brand new Toronto Real Estate directory website.
I installed “SI Captcha for WordPress” now and it works properly with my DP regitration form.
Will see what the protection skills are.
thanks for sharing Thomas
I have installed AVH first defense against spam and it kept giving errors like WARNING Missing argument…. when a user tried to register. I have been using Wordfence but since the last update (wordfence update) it is also giving an error when users try to register – see below. Any ideas why this is happening?

the plugin wont with with our theme at the moment, it uses more function arguments than are currently enabled in the theme.

i tried the three mentioned above, all i got was plugin errrors;
Fatal error: Call to a member function get_error_code() on a non-object in F:\SERVER\htdocs\WP\wp-content\plugins\sabre\classes\sabre_class.php on line 322
and the other two didnt do much better.
