    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

  • 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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Thanks Ipstenu
