[Plugin: Stop Spammer Registrations Plugin] Blocks Login from Droid using WP app. (2 posts)

    The plugin seems to be blocking me from posting from my Droid phone using the WP app. Since I'm logging in, not registering, any idea why and how to get around this? The plugin log said "Bad or Missing HTTP_REFERER"

    The referer check is an option. Either you uncheck the HTTP_REFERER option or you white list the IP addesses that you phone is using.

    The app is not sending an HTTP_REFERER because it is sending the form directly without accessing the form. This is bad because there are so many programs to add "NONCE" fields and CAPTCHA to the login. My code adds a nonce field to the login form, so it will be interesting to see if the disabling the http_referer option will allow you to login.

    You might also notify the plugin author. The plugin should look like someone entering information from a browser.
