Better spam fighting for new user profiles
I get so many spam users registering on the site, they do not post anything but just activate the account, add a website link and add links in the about me section on their profile.
Here's a screenshot, so many of these.
I've been manually clearing these up, but it takes a lot time. It would be great if there was a feature that users had to be active for XX number of days or have XX number of posts before they can add a link in a profile field?
There is an option to make user posts approved after x number of posts. There is an option to allow users to add links and attach files after x number of posts. All Antispam options are located in Dashboard > Forums > Tools > Antispam Tab. But before checking these options please read this support topic and make sure you've done all steps of the spam protection: https://wpforo.com/community/faq/how-to-stop-spam/
@robert but this is NOT for profiles. The problem of the OP is different and we have it also. People registering, post nothing, just spam their profiles.
@robert This is not for posts, this is for users who register and spam their profiles. I have recaptcha, Askimet, and everything else enabled. I even have Cloudflare security set to high for the forums.
They also leave links using html in the about section, so that wouldn't solve the problem.
