The most advanced protection against sploggers and spam users registration, is fully WordPress, WordPress MU, BuddyPress and bbPress 2.0 compatible
Very easy to setup and configure, looks like this is going to be a must-have
Because they kill spam! Seriously . I've tried 4-5 plugins then came wang. I hope I grow big enough so I can pay them!!
I just wanted to say thank you. I started using the Plugin a few hours back and already having positive results. Will share more if anything happens. So great!
I think the best thing of this plugin is its security question. it really helped me to get rid of spammers!
thanks so much
My WP install replaced a former admin's CMS on our domain. It already has the attention of the evil element of the Internet.
The WP site allows users to register, but blocks them from commenting without a previously approved comment. That works fine.
But I was at the point of receiving 5 to 6 new user registrations a day, all without logged IPs and with obviously faked or one-time email addys from hotmail and similar domains.
WangGuard has been stopping these registrations cold. No trouble with legitimate registrations. Simple and effective.
This is the first review that I have ever done, but absolutely feel compelled to do so. I put up a WordPress site with BuddyPress and was swamped daily (200+) registration requests from sploggers. It was overwhelming. After installing WangGuard my registration from sploggers was zero. This product is awesome!
This plugin is saving our site from piles of splogger registrations. It is to Buddypress what Akismet is to WordPress, in my opinion.
I'm just experimenting with BuddyPress, and I love it that WangGuard keeps my database free of spammers except, perhaps for the occasional spammer with reasonable intelligence who registers personally.
I had Registration disabled on our busy blog and allowed posting by non-registered users. (Worked fine because of Akisment & Conditional Captcha -- a powerful team that ensures we don't have to look at spam and legit users don't have to fill out Captcha's.)
Before disabling registration, we had accumulated thousands of users in our database, with a high proportion of spammers. Thus when I wanted to experiment with BuddyPress, I was wary of allowing registration, which is necessary for BuddyPress. I had already deleted all users, but WangGuard would have done it for me if I had not.
Now WangGuard ensure that only legitimate users enter our database.
I'm very pleased.
Thanks for making this - best solution ever! :)
The number of splogers in BuddyPress has increase so much that any open network in BP would be infested with them within hours after activation.
Wangguard get rid of them with almost no work form you in most cases.
The algorithm has improve so much that the number of false positive or false negative is almost irrelevant.
The painkiller for the BuddyPress admin.
I installed, and it found a couple hundred sploggers in my user list. I knew they were sploggers, just by the addys, but it was time-consuming to keep removing them. What a great tool. I'm putting this on all our sites.
