User Spam Remover

Automatically removes spam user registrations and other old, unused user accounts. Blocks annoying e-mail to administrator after new registrations.

Requirements: PHP 5.1+ (tested with PHP 5.2.x). WordPress 3.0+ (uses new permissions system).

  1. Download, unzip and upload into your plugins directory. (Or, install through the plugins menu in WordPress.)

  2. Go to the Plugins configuration screen in WordPress and activate. Look for the settings link to go to the User Spam Remover settings page (User Spam Remover also gets added to the left menu under "Users").

  3. On the settings page, you'll need to click the "Enable" checkbox to turn the plugin on. Scroll down and change any options you like. Click "Save Changes."

    One note on logging: By default, all logging is enabled (good!), but the log directory is set to the log subdirectory of the plugin. While this is OK, it means your log files will be viewable over the web, so I recommend you change this directory to someplace else (i.e., if the root of your site is /www/mysite/html, do something like /www/mysite/log). Be sure to use chmod or your FTP program to make this directory webserver-writable (don't worry, User Spam Remover will warn you if it's not).

  4. Once you're done, that's it! Feel free to use the blue "Remove spam/unused accounts now" button to test it out. User Spam Remover will run once a day automatically from now on.
