Hi,

I have 2 questions:

1, I received a lot of spam emails from the "password reset" part of my wpForo Forum (see message below). How to stop it please?

2, How to let a Youtube link shows a showbox in a topic. Ps, I have already bought your "Advance Attachment" addon.

Thanks in advance!

Peter

wpForo has nothing to do here. This is a small email, and it's rejected, so you get notification by SMTP service. You should add filter in your email provider and skip such emails from your inbox. wpForo doesn't even responsive for the new user registration. All functions of user registration come from the WordPress core. wpForo only provides a nice registration form, all other steps are performed by WordPress then> SMTP then> Email Services. You'll always get such emails when a spammer user is registered with a fake email. So you should add a filter to your email service.

The same issue have all WordPress users, you can find hundreds of such support topics in WordPress Support forum. The solution is having a strong antispam plugin which will stop registering spam users. Here are some recommendations: https://wpforo.com/community/faq/how-to-stop-spam/

The Advanced Attachments addon has nothing to do with YouTube links, this addon is designed for file attachments and showing them in posts. You should check out the wpForo Embeds addon: https://gvectors.com/product/wpforo-embeds/
