Spam control - Is any of this possible at the moment?
Spam control features are still limited in WPForo, I would like to see the following:
1-) Limit the amount of posts per minute a person can make.
2-) Automatic ways to prevent spam/double posting so that a person or spam bot cannot post the same exact message over and over again throughout the forum.
3-) Limit a first time user ability to post more than one post when she/he is under moderation, the person would need to wait until after his/her first post is removed from moderation in order to be able to post more topics.
Currently I don't see a way to do any of this, if I'm mistaken someone please enlighten me 🙂
There is no way to do that currently.
Best thing to do is to stop bots and spam at REGISTRATION. After entering the site it is harder and needs human attention and work.
I see. Nothing currently can limit posters from double posts.
BUT for spammers and bots, all captchas do not work well for me and makes life hard for users.
What works is The Shield plugin. Keeps all bots and spammers out. Takes care of blog post comments also. And you have a basic firewall also.
