    Yo hi,

    My site is attacked by spammers with gmail addresses, then they open a user account and post the “Buy Google Review Comments, Buy Trustpilot reviews etc.”. So in fact I have to delete all these accounts daily manually.

    Is there any solution how to block those spam registrations?

    1. Is there a plugin where I can see IP addresses on the new registered users in order to block the IPs?
    2. Is there a plugin or solution to block spammers with Gmail email address registrations?

    Thanks for your input.

    Regards
    Daniel

    Hi Daniel,
    I am sorry to hear about it.

    1. You may want to try this one
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/register-ip-multisite/

    2. Do you want to block all users from gmail.com? If yes, we have a simple solution. You can use our ban registration domains plugin.

    Or if you want to restrict which email domains can be used for registering user, you can use our WordPress Restricted Email Domains plugin.

    Regards

    Hi Brajesh,

    Thanks for the IP plugin suggestion. I have installed it and it does exactly what I was looking for.

    I have installed Ban Hammer one week ago and it works the same as the BP plugin Ban registration, which is very effective.

    Thanks again.

    Regards
    Daniel

    Hi Daniel,
    You are welcome.
    I had suggested the registration plugin as you had asked for a solution to block gmail. I am glad you have already done this.

    Hi,

    I have found this link to create a honeypot for spammers for Buddypress.

    https://cyberwire.nl/code-snippets/prevent-buddypress-registration-spam/

    Could you teach me how to make a plugin out of it so I can add the plugin? Or can I add the code to a php file of Buddypress?

    Thanks for your help.

    Regards
    Daniel

    Hello,

    I have to clean my website with over 30k spam registrations, but doing it manually under WP Users Dashboard it will take hours and hours. Can I delete the spam accounts in a clean way via FTP that will also delete all the activity posts of these spammers and everything what is associated with these accounts, same way as if I would delete them via WP User Dashboard?

    Thanks for your input.

    Regards
    Daniel
