90% of spam CAN be blocked BEFORE registering/loging in. It is wrong to try to fight SPAM and profile SPAM, AFTER a user has registered. A waste of time.

I assume you are in the same situation, we are having trouble with the remaining 10%.

For example, if we have 30 spam registrations daily on our forum, even if we successfully block 27 of them, if we miss 3, those 3 will post a lot of spam.

I will try the plugin you mentioned tomorrow.

Thanks for your assistance, I appreciate it.
We are counting on your advice.

@surlofia Manual Spam can't be avoided i'm afraid.

But do you have so much spam?

There are some tools in wpForo for that. For spam. Enable them. For example moderate posts for new users until they reach xxx ammount of posts. Or even moderate new signups.

You can't be 100% spam free. Still i ask, why your site ATTRACTS spammers? Think about it. Is it so popular? Or do you have some ALREADY spammed topics and spammers find it?

We expect this is because we are the creators of a very popular free WordPress theme in Japan.

@surlofia Ok, got it. Then if you can afford it, use something like Wordfence or Cleantalk.

Good luck with your business and wpForo.

Also Shield Security is a good one, i'm using it at some customer's sites.

Thanks @dimalifragis !

This is the first time we have not had spam two days in a row.
We find the bot blocking quite effective.
It was a big help that you introduced us to the Shield Security plugin.
Shield Security plugin is not well known in Japan, so we would never have discovered it on our own.

Thank you @dimalifragis !
