This is by far, the best anti-spammers / fake registration plugin I have found. I run a buddypress community at https://systemwi.de/ and it got heavily spammed before installing this plugin. In the few days I have used it, I have had one fake registration per day, and this plugin have, in that time, stopped "Stop Spammers has prevented 350 spammers from registering or leaving comments."... Saving lots of time. I run the site on a zero-budget but will for sure try to find some donation money to keep the plugin dev on line. Thanks a lot!/John
Just two words.
A spam stopper that does more than just filter comments.
Just love it. Highly recommend!
I've had this plugin running for a week now and every day I'm emailed about more spam registrations. This is exactly what this plugin was supposed to stop, but somehow obvious spammers with mail.ru addresses are signing up.
While I can block those TLD's from being used (theoretically, we'll see if that actually works or not), I'm disappointed that such an obvious source of spam isn't being blocked as a default setting.
I don't know what's going on.
Today I spent 2 hours to figure why new user registration email not sending while admin notification is sent.
Mail server checked, external SMTP server used. All are same problem.
Once I disable this plugin, everything work like charm.
* WordPress version: 4.4
* I tried several times activate and deactivate this plugin. And quite confirmed it cause the problem I mentioned.
Just so you know, so far, it works fine in 4.4 :-)
I have pretty much worked through and using all the features.
However, although I have added my IP in the 'Allow' section, when I try to login as Admin I get a loop message > denied.
Challenge & Deny > Send spammer to another web page
I am using a custom url/page message to spammers and not sure if this is what is causing the problem?
This plugin is very hyperactive and only half works. I ran it for about 2 weeks and I had so many issues. Made SURE I had it set up the way I wanted it to work and it refused to allow people to register to my site. It locked out users and admins with prejudice.
It behaves violently and unholy to legitimate users while spammers got through the registrations just fine.
It is worthless. Hey if you don't want users this is the plugin in for you.
Thanks, went from lots of spam registrations daily to none in the first week I've been using the plugin.
This plugin is a real time saver. I was getting about 50 bogus sign ups a week. This plugin filtered them all out and allowed the legitimate users sign up.
my new site was getting a ton of spam and this instantaneously killed it all
