Still getting spam registrations & forum posts 8 years, 8 months ago #1691

Hi

I installed Registration Validator on a domain that I was getting loads of bogus registrations and forum posts. It may be coincidence but these seemed to stop for one day but retstarted quite quickly.

I tested the registration process (several times)with email addresses I took from Stop Forum Spam and it accepted the new registrations OK.

Just one question. I have recaptcha enabled on the registration form (which is also the Kunenan forum signup)- do I need to disable this to get Registration Validator to work?

Thanks

Paul

You shouldn't need to disable captcha if it is enabled, though my aim in RV is to make captcha unnecessary. That is my personal aim though, and I know many people use it in conjunction with captcha - no system can be 100% effective.

It should work with Kunena - however, if you are using the latest version of Kunena you will want RV2.1.4. Let me know and I can email it to you - I haven't put it on the site yet, but it is running on this site and some other users are using it. There may be some more updates to it before I release it.

I am using version 1.5.11 of Kunena. If the latest version of RV would help, please send it.

Any ideas why I was still able to register with email addresses from Stop Forum Spam?

Thanks

I've just sent it.

Being able to register with StopForumSpam registered addresses means something isn't working. As you are not on Kunena 1.6, I don't think the changes in RV2.1.4 will change anything for you - the next step is to enable logging and see what is being detailed there.

Do you use JomSocial on your site at all? That is the only other component that I know can throw RV off, but this is easily fixed by changing plugin order.
