Hello, 

Last week a few fake members had been registered to my forum with the email extension clickbts.org

How can I ban this extension to be registered? They seem to want to sell steroids and that stuff. 

I can't activate the email confirmation because my emails sent from the forum goes to the spam folder, and I haven't been able to fix it.

 

Thanks a lot.

This is a Wordpress issue and not wpForo, still use

https://wordpress.org/plugins/ban-hammer/

to solve it.

I'd also recommend #2 and #3 solutions to do a general protection against spam:
