Support » Plugin: WP Author Bio » Tons of Subscribers Added Since Installing

  • This is absolutely insane. Since I added this author box plugin I am getting at least 30-40 subscribers with crazy email addresses being added as Subscribers on my blog. I do NOT want these obvious spam email addresses having any sort of access to my blog – subscriber or otherwise! How do I stop this?

  • Does anyone have an answer for this? I’ve had over 100 new subscribers with obvious spam email addresses sign up as subscribers under my USERS section of the blog. I do not want anyone being able to subscribe in this manner to my blog. If I can’t stop this I’m removing the plugin.

    Looks like there is no support answers given here, I’m going to try another plugin.

    @kimatliah – Sorry Kim I have no idea how to reproduce this. Are you sure this activity is related to Sexy Author Bio specifically? I haven’t heard of this happening to other users before. Is there any specific thing you did or way you configured it that may have caused the issue? I can’t fix it if I can’t reproduce it unfortunately. Sorry I’m not of more help here.
