Spam Registration

  1. Hi,

    We've activated the user registration add-on and configured our user registration form. We activated akismet integration, enabled anti-spam honeypot and added a captcha field to the form, but we are still seeing a very high submission of spammers.

    Is there anything we potentially have configured wrong or anything we could do to overcome this issue? I believe e-mail validation will be in your next release, so we are looking forward to that.

    The form in question is here - http://myrunnersworld.co.za/register/

  2. Did you solved that?
    Double opt-in should help, but I really cant find out right now how to do that with GF.

  3. The 1.5 beta release of the User Registration add-on was released on Friday and includes support for user activation (moderation). Does that help you?

  4. Thank you, Chris, does it include sending e-mail verification for double opt-in or just admin-side activation?

  5. It includes both. However, it is beta software, so the best thing to do is test it out in a non-production environment before deploying it.

  6. I had no choice other than set it into production ;-))) But it is my fault, and plugin works ok so far.
    QUESTION: How can I customise subject line of the email with activation link?

  7. Can you add user activation link shortcut to Merge Tags, making it available for setting up custom user notifications?

  8. Adding the activation link to the merge tags is a good idea. I'll mark it as a feature request.

  9. I asked for feedback from the developers on both your requests. We should hear back next week.

  10. We will talk about this amongst the team and see if these are features we may include in the next version of the add-on. Thanks for the feedback.
