    I seem to have several spam users using my site and registering profiles. How can I prevent this? I have the reCaptcha email confirmation both enabled, but those accounts are certainly fake and spammy.

    any other suggestions?

    Hello there,

    Even reCaptcha alone should be enough for preventing spam. If it’s not, then it means that the spam bots are getting smarter than Google or that it’s actually humans doing this manually.

    Email confirmation should provide additional protection.

    If you see that they are registering from specific email domains, you may restrict those with our free add-on:

    Look for “deny email domains from registering”.

    With the best of regards,
    Gabriel
