Could I stop forum spam if I change login & sign up routes?

  1. 5 years ago

    I got a lotta spam in my forum, I got more than 7000k spamming posts even though I use stop forum spam or recaptcha plugin. Could I stop forum spam if I change login & sign up routes?

    What do you mean with routes?
    Anyway, have you tried this method? http://esotalk.org/forum/1387-prevent-bot-spam-registrations/p1#p6530
    Check also this post to see my banned emails list: http://esotalk.org/forum/conversation/post/8321

  3. As of right now I've only been able to maintain spambots by blocking all emails that aren't gmail, it seems to work for awhile (Not really tried for longer than 1 month.)

    I haven't been receiving spam posts, but due to enabling administrator approval to registrations, I do get quite a few spam registrations each day. I'll be taking a step to rectify this issue by using reCAPTCHA. Failing that, I'll look into blocking email addresses.
