    Stopping spam bots on a buddypress site


    I have a buddypress site (like a Wordpress MU) and I am being overwhelmed with spam bots registering and creating blogs.

    I've tried a bunch of plugins but nothing seems to be working to stop them.

    Can anyone help?

    Could you tell me which plugins you use?

    I wonder if wordpress MU is less susceptible to spam than buddypress?

    If you are using the default registration and login option then it is hard to control spam. In fact, even on a simple WordPress blog, it is difficult to control spam with the default commenting system when we are talking about a community site it will increase by multiple folds. You should try using the social login for WordPress option, you can find some here. And have a look at the best BuddyPress plugins here.
