The most advanced protection against sploggers and spam users registration, is fully WordPress,WordPress MU ,BuddyPress and bbPress 2.0 compatible
I have been using Akismet with Wanguard. They are working great together and stop 90% spam.
Wangguard just made me forget the sploggers problem since I use it in every site, specially using BuddyPress.
Highly recommend it. Thanks for the plugin! :)
I had fake registrations on my site for months - one registration every hour on average. In addition, they were automatically subscribing for my newsletter for which I have a limit of 2 000 subscribers (without paying). I tried several plugins, captcha's etc to stop the fake registration but with no result. Finally I came upon WangGuard and it solved my issue. It simply works, really works! And not only that, but it is free too! This is the perfect solution for me!
Each week, the number of SPAM registrants on my blog kept increasing. By the time, we reached one new registration every 30 minutes, I knew we needed to find a solution.
I did a little searching, and posed a question on the WordPress forum. A very helpful user recommended WangGuard, and I installed it shortly after. WangGuard has been operating for about 36 hours, and I have gotten TWO SPAM registrations!
No longer do I get all those pesky emails for faker users.
No longer do I have to log into WordPress just to delete SPAM users.
This little plug-in works wonders!
This plug-in resolves my headache. One of the most epic WP plugins ever created! To the creators, thank you so much!
I've been inundated with bogus new users which are clearly attempts from bots and manage to by-pass a variety of blocking methods including a number of captcha type tools. WangGuard has put an immediate stop to this which means I can now continue to run the registration of real new-users.
Im glad I found this plugin! The only real solutions against sploggers
This has made a huge difference in managing my Buddypress site. The customizable cron jobs and security questions are so helpful. Thank you very much for making such a smart and efficient tool.
This is an amazing plugin, super effective, too.
Essential for any WordPress site which offer public registration (eg those using bbPress and BuddyPress). As with most such sites we suffered numerous fake "new users" using bots to register. We tried a number of measures to keep them out using plugins and .htaccess but still found a number of them were getting through. Installing WangGuard enabled us to identify the fake users already registered with the site (and get rid of them) and it seems to bar fake applications. Best of all it takes an intelligent approach to genuine applications meaning "false positives" can be eliminated. Highly recommended.
