WangGuard’s closing was a huge loss for my site and for me financially. My site got attacked to the point where all the features broke. I still can’t find a comparable plugin. Sorry to see you go!
I literally just found this plugin today in hopes of preventing my Buddypress registration spam. It's unfortunate to hear the IndieGogo campaign did not suffice. It certainly seemed like a very well-developed plugin for an all too common issue.
Earlier, my website websiteh was receiving a lot of spams, and i was not able to do anything to solve it. But after downloading WangGuard, i am tension free, as no spams are coming to my website and i feel safe now. It is the best plugin. You must download it if you want to protect your website from sploggers.
I've tried so many security plugins out there but all have something missing. Recently I tried wanggaurd and it's the complete security pack. It provides almost all necessary things to make my blog secure. Thanks to wanggaurd team.
I downloaded this plugin after all the recommendations. It works great in identifying and stopping the sploggers. I had some minor problems trying to get the activation to work, but finally just changed the http:// to https:// and everything worked perfectly. I'm thinking the developer probably needs some support from all of us. Give it a try.
I've been using WangGuard for several years, and it's amazing. This should really be a paid plugin.
