WordPress Business Themes › Forums › Version 7 Themes › DirectoryPress › Spam registration
I have been spammed, all the way !
30 websites of mine have been hit.
I get at least 500 registrations in one day on one website.
So multiply it with 30: 15 000 registrations ….. so my security script blocked everything.
At the moment, all registration are closed until I find a solution !
It was, robots from Russia and France
Russia : Attack registration
So about that:
– We need to have forms more secure.
– Can you put more filter in fields on forms.
– For free Packages, we need an option like:
Check the case, if you don’t want to offer profile page to this package.
Before you ask me, only websites with a premiumpress script were affected.
I have had discussion about spam registration with Mark just few days ago and Mark will be adding some extra measures to combat it in the coming updates.
Very nice !
I would like to have a CAPTCHA in the “submit”
Sorry to hear that Jean-Francois. I too am being bombarded with spam registrations on my DP sites but thankfully nowhere near as heavy.
I tried Better WP security plug in and posted about the problems I faced using that.
Can’t wait for the new measures.
Stephen there are plugins that will add CAPTCHA to the reg/login pages.
It’s only happening on Directorypress, shopperpress and classifiedstheme.
All other blogs created with WordPress are not affected !
So there is a hole somewhere in those scripts !
@ Jean-François have you seen and tried this, I don’t get much if any spam.
I have it on all my sites, I would be interested to know if it was of help to you or not, I never used to get much spam anyway but now it’s basically zero.
Still get some odd signups on a forum of mine but they never spam.
