I'm running WPForo with Ultimate Member and have a custom UM registration page.
I have been getting a number of bot sign ups who are bypassing the registration page - I know this because they are not filling in the required fields and all new members must be manually approved by Admin. But whenever i check Users, there a number of bots in there.
So, on the UM Support, a member kindly pointed out that he had the same problem and that it was because the fake accounts were coming through from WPForo's registration form: (yourdomain.com/community/?foro=signup).
He fixed this by redirecting WP's to UM's.
However, when I try to redirect i’m faced with a drop down option to select either logged in or logged out users.
So, if I set the redirection on WPForo’s login page to redirect users to my custom login, then anyone who is not already a member and logged into my site can no longer see/access the forum, which is what I don’t want.
Do you have any advice for redirecting?
Or, even easier, is there a way to delete this page without redirecting?
If you don't want to use wpForo Reg/Login forms, go to Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Feature Tab and disable the below options:
- Enable User Registration(Disabling this option won't let users register through wpForo Reg form)
- Replace Registration Page URL to Forum Registration Page URL
- Replace Login Page URL to Forum Login Page URL
- Replace Reset Password Page URL to Forum Reset Password Page URL
Then go to Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Members Tab and check Custom Authorization URLs field, set the Login/Reg/Reset Password URL's to UM ones.
