Stop Spammers
Blocked TLDs Not Working (5 posts)

    In the section for "Blocked TLDs" I have the following entered:
    .cn
    .info
    .pl
    .ru

    However, I keep getting registration spam from ".pl" TLDs. Especially from the "o2.pl" domain. I've blocked that TLD and even that domain. Nothing helps.
    I still keep getting spam registrations from .pl and other domains within that TLD.
    What gives?

    Please make sure that you have the latest beta version as I have made a few changes to the way the blocks work. http://www.blogseye.com/beta-test-plugins

    It could be that the registrations is not checking the email. I have been getting reports that some login and registration plugins are not compatible with my plugin and bypass the checks.

    please email me the url of your registration form and I will see if I can see anything.

    Thanks,

    Hi Keith,

    Thank you for responding. I have installed the latest beta plugin for "stop-spammer-registrations-plugin" and have emailed you a link to my registration form.

    Thanks for your help!

    Try unchecking the box "Check credentials on all login attempts:" When it is checked some of the login checking is ignored. Try this and see if it helps.

    Hi Keith,

    Unfortunately, I've already had that un-checked. If I'm not mistaken, that was off by default?
    Is there anything else you can think of that might be interfering? The only other plug-in I have that may be on the same form is Akismet.

    Thanks,
