Support » Fixing WordPress » Need a Plugin to spot sploggers registering

  • As we all know by now Wanggaurd is Dead it did a great job of protecting the site from sploggers and checking current users that would turn to the Dark Side.
    Thousand of people are now looking for a replacement.
    I for one have wpbruser and it works great for protecting the site for spam.
    I do need to replace wandgaurd and get a plugin that just does registration protection from sploggers.
    Does anyone know of one that will do this?
    What I have checked out so far is
    AVH First Defense Against Spam – this one I did use before until the developer abandoned it then someone else picked it up and now it seems abandoned again. Worked great but if you need support your up the creek without a paddle. So this one’s out.
    wp-spamshield – It seems more of a spam stopper then a registration splogger stopper. I already have a anti spam plugin so this one’s out
    Wpmudev antisplog – Multisite only. when I had a multisite this plugin worked great.but it’s only for multisite so this one’s out
    thanks for any help on this

  • Hey Mitch,

    WP-SpamShield does stop spam registrations…in fact it’s one of the best at it. It will do exactly what you need. You mentioned having an anti-spam plugin – if you are using Akismet, it will work together with it. (If you are using a CAPTCHA-based plugin, then the two won’t be compatible.) Let us know if you have any questions, and we’ll be happy to help. If it doesn’t meet your needs, then no problem…just ignore this. 🙂

    while it will spot spam registrations Like I said I already have an anti spam stopper I use WPBruiser works great. Now just need one for registrations thanks
