SSL/TLS Connectivity Issue Is Annoying
By , for WP 4.4.1

Given that the plugin's inability to connect securely with WangGuard's servers is a known issue for MANY people, it'd be nice if the error message would recommend disabling SSL/TLS connection rather than forcing us to search through support forums to find this simple solution.

No idea whether this plugin will actually stop spam registrations or not, but they've already lost a star for the headache it took to even get it working on a clean-installed WP site.

Thanks for a wonderful Plugin
By , for WP 4.4

Thanks for a wonderful Plugin. But it doesn't block registering users. I have to go to WangGuard Settings and run scan to figure out spammed users.
Also Please update mailpoet plugin for wangguard as it is not scanning mailpoet subscribers.
Thanks

Problem creating database tables
By , for WP 4.0

I had to fight installing WangGuard.
Indeed there was something
wrong in creating new database tables!
I followed the FAQ when it says:
"Please, copy the next code and use phpMyadmin or similar software for create WangGuard tables."

But when I run the query I got error:

"Unknown character set: 'latin1_swedish_ci'"

Eventually I solved the problem removing all the lines:

"DEFAULT CHARACTER SET latin1_swedish_ci"

and the query properly created the new database tables!

Now I can save settings and all is working very well, no more sploggers!!!

I have been using Akismet with Wanguard. They are working great together and stop 90% spam.
