[resolved] NoSpamNX for user registrations (3 posts)

    Would it be possible to enable NoSpamNX for user registrations as well as comments? I suspect more than half of the users on a site are spam registrations. To prevent these I'd prefer a honeypot field in the registration form over captchas or querying third party block lists.

    NoSpamNX had this feature a while ago, but i removed it due to leak of testing time and the possibility of locking you completly out of your wordpress instllation.

    I noticed it was in testing way back but isn't in use at the moment. I believe we can get it working. I'll be glad to do some testing in order to be able to run sites free of spam users.

    Login shouldn't be affected as long as the check for registration action is proper. Line 337 of wp-login.php uses $action = isset($_REQUEST['action']) ? $_REQUEST['action'] : 'login'; suggesting us to use if ( $_REQUEST['action'] == 'register' ) { add_nospamnx_to_registration() }.
