Hi, i recently discovered that over 500 fake accounts had been created on my site even though my WordPress does not allow account creation.

Are there any settings I need to set to prevent creation of this fake accounts?

What is more concerning is each of these accounts has junks added in its bio

@sysads Not sure what you mean. That is the option to disable totally new registrations. IN wpFORO settings.

What exactly is the issue? You seem to jump from one issue to an other? Why try to sign up, if sign up is disabled?

I do not follow, sorry.

@dimalifragis 

1) The anyone can register option is disabled by default in WordPress but yet Register and Login is still showing up in wpforo

2) How do I make it so people in wpforo can comment as guest without registering?

3) If they comment as guest, anyway to put their comment in moderation for approval?

 

Thanks

1) Did you DISABLED the wpForo settings i posted above?

Here it is again:

and i attach you a capture also for the exact setting.

2) & 3) are totally different questions, please open a new topic. You have mixed 4 issues so far.
