Support » Plugin: Spam Destroyer » Stops bbpress posts inside of buddypress groups

  • Hi Ryan,
    thanks for your wonderful plugin, I think it’s really good and important! Until now I did only some testings local so can’t say anything about the real results yet…
    I experienced one problem:

    Using BuddyPress 1.7-bleeding with bbPress 2.3-bleeding, enable on bbPress settings BuddyPress Group Forums: Posting inside of bbpress main forums works, but posting inside of a group forum doesn’t work – give’s the error: ERROR: Your topic cannot be empty.

    Thanks for the report 🙂

    I’m doing quite a few improvements to the plugin at the moment and one of the next things I intend to get to is bbPress, BuddyPress and multisite user/site registration support.

    Thanks for plugin. IMHO a very necessary and a very very useful plugin.


    Can confirm the above from @fee with bp 1.7 and bbpress 2.3 (both now stable versions and not rc).

    The error is as described above and at

    The very best of luck with bbPress, BuddyPress and multisite user/site registration support.

    The current version of the Spam Destroyer plugin is not compatible with bbPress. I have prepared a beta version which seems to work well though. It doesn’t stop huge amounts of spam but I’m using it myself and it seems to be blocking about 99% of it.

    A few people over in the BuddyPress forums have reported problems with the beta version, but I haven’t managed to replicate the problems they are experiencing yet.

    I’m hoping to make it block a lot more than 99% soon too, as I want to set it up to automatically deploy a captcha once sufficient spam comments/registrations are submitted. This functionality should be working for blog comments, but I haven’t figured out a suitable way to make it work for registrations just yet.

    Hi again,

    the Download Link at Download Spam Destroyer version 1.4.3 beta is not functioning 404 Error – not found

    Darn. That’s a bug in my site spitting out the wrong URLs. Thanks for pointing it out as I wasn’t aware of it.

    Here’s one that works …

    The links on my site are working again now 🙂 Sorry for the inconvenience. I did some spring cleaning on it a few days ago and must have messed something up during that process.

    Thanks. OK

    wp 3.5.1, bp 1.7, bbpress 2.3, SD 1.4.3

    just to report on a local install multisite spam destroyer activated in wp-admin /plugins.php (as opposed to wp-admin/network/ plugins.php) the problem outlined above appears to have been solved.

    Thats all i can say – as i barely know what i’m doing!

    Thanks again and good luck.

    Hopefully it’ll work well for you.

    I’m super keen to hear how it works out for you and if there are any changes you need made.

    online on a test site now with tracking !
