    Stop WordPress Spam Registration with Sabre WordPress Plugin

    These days almost every 1 out of 5 professional blog is offering guest posting and to automate the process most of them allow registration for everyone and one can submit post for review. Though this also created a problem for such blogs as spammers are using automated way to register and submit posts for review. In fact 2 weeks back I had almost 300+ registration in 48 hrs. at ShoutMeloud and almost 70 spam posts were submitted.

    So I had to stop the registration and that’s why you see less guest post in last month. Anyways, here is a Anti-registration spam plugin Call Sabre which is very useful to stop automated spam registration. Sabre plugin adds a captcha in the registrationform of your blog and you can set the complexity of captcha from settings page of Sabre. You can configure different settings from tools> Sabre under your WordPress dashboard.

    More over my only purpose of installing Sabre plugin was to stop spam registration and from last 48 hours, I have not seen even a single spam registration. So this plugin is for all who are tired of spam bot registrations on your WordPress blog.  And also ShoutMeloud guest author program is back again and you can register here and submit your post for review.

    You can download the plugin from official WordPress plugin repo.

    In last 1 month I have seen almost 1500+ spam registration and I would like to know if you also faced any issue with spam bots registering on your WordPress blog? What measures did you took to fight against such WordPress bot registration?

    Hi,
    Harsh you are right. Now a days people use automated registration for submitting spam post. I also faced similar problem with my health site where is got also 200 registration in single day, submitting spam post continuously , So i have installed plugin named: SI Captcha for registration which helped me a lot to reduce spam registration to my site. I think everyone, who allow guest posting should registration captcha for dealing with spam registration.

    Great plugin..I’ve been using it for almost 8 months now after it was recommended by one of my blogger friends :) …I have not got a single spam registration on my blog. Although the plugin is free, i would pay a price to have this one. If you run a multi-author blog, this is a must have.

    Sadly, I’m not able to register at SML after this plugin has been installed I guess. It asks me to enter the password after filling in all fields and submitting.

    Can you pl have a look at the registration form?
