    Setup Multisite with Buddypress on main site
    Subdomain install

    Different theme on a blog, running Appthemes Jobroller application.
    Issue on blog is that: Account activation is direct and Email Verification is being bypassed.
    Many spammers getting registered, i did install some security plugins, but still this is an open end,
    I need to know if there is a plugin which can force to send account activation link in mail.

    Please suggest if you have solved the same or if you know any possible solution

  2. YOu can't bypass email verification....

    But anyway, check http://www.darcynorman.net/2009/05/20/stopping-spamblog-registration-in-wordpress-multiuser/

    Change the wp-signup.php to your registration page slug.

    Also change that slug to something else. Like 'join-us'

    Thanks Ipstenu.
    I have modified .htaccess following the link you provided. And i hope i will be safe from spammmmmers:)

    For slug change, i am not sure if it is required in my case when, on main site registration page is example.com/register and on blog its site1.example.com/wp-login.php (its one page for login and registration)

    if i try to access wp-signup.php on main site with url example.com/wp-signup.php it redirects to example.com/register and on blog site site1.example.com/wp-signup.php it also redirects to example.com/register

    Can you please direct me in right direction if still it is required

  4. on main site registration page is example.com/register and on blog its site1.example.com/wp-login.php (its one page for login and registration)

    So you didn't network activate BuddyPress then? Becuase that should redirect you to site1.example.com/wp-signup.php and THEN redirect to example.com/register

    if i try to access wp-signup.php on main site with url example.com/wp-signup.php it redirects to example.com/register and on blog site site1.example.com/wp-signup.php it also redirects to example.com/register

    That's 100% as it should be.

    It is network activated, and site1.example.com/wp-signup.php redirects to main site registration page. But site1.example.com/wp-login.php doesn't redirect.
    Anyway, .htaccess modification is blocking spammers registration, it is reduced from 4-5 per day to 1. and no spam status posts since this modification.
    Thanks for your help.

  6. But site1.example.com/wp-login.php

    Well. No. But that isn't the REGISTRATION page :)

    correct :)
    and multisite/buddypress default behavior will not redirect login page.
    And on site1 its Jobroller theme using same page for login and registration.

  8. and multisite/buddypress default behavior will not redirect login page.

    Default WP behavior: Don't redirect the login page (because if you do, folks can't log in). This is true.

    You don't redirect the login page, you just provide a different one publicly. The wiseasses will always know anyway.
