Hi, I'm getting around 200 user register in a day which I can stop them.

I have set the recaptcha on register page but still they keep getting in.

what version do you have ?. I had to go down to 1.7.4 why the current version lets them pass so they are in review for approval


as the approval of users in that version if it works what I do is check your ip if you are not a legal user is deleted

But you can see others answers here

I'm using latest version. It only started when I upgrade to new version. I even have blocked register plugin install but even that is not doing anything.

I do wish I can select all of the register user in few days and delete them but we dont have any option to delete bulk user

that's why I say it's not a safe version because it lets users through. take my case and install the 1.7.4 since there the option to approve users by the administrator if it works
