    Hi there

    I understand I have to have ‘anyone can register' ticked in WordPress Admin for WPUF to work – but because this is ticked, I am seeing a lot of subscriber registrations. What's the simplest way to shut these off or prevent those registrations?

    Thanks,

    Toby

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. I can see there is an option to add a captcha to WPUF forms (which is awesome). But my problem is that spammers are subscribing via this address:

    http://example.com/wp-login.php?action=register

    I can't add another plugin because any plugin that prevents registration at this URL also seems to mess with registration at my desired registration forms.

    Is there a standard method to keep registration at my desired registration form but prevent registration at any other URL?

    Thanks.

    Did you customise the form by your self? or using WPUF or anything else?

    Hi there

    No – I have a registration form, created in WPUF. But spammers are creating accounts via this address:

    http://example.com/wp-login.php?action=register

    Normally I would resolve this by unchecking the option to allow anyone to register, but if I do that then WPUF won't work.

    Thanks.

    Is there no answer to this?

    I was hoping for some guidance before I start trying to find a plugin that will prevent subscribers from registering while allowing WPUF to create registrations..

    Thanks.

    Sorry for that.

    Can you try this plugin? http://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-registration-link/
    It should change the registration URL and might stop spammers. Although that plugin hasn't been updated for a long time, but should work.
