spam registrations
« on: December 27, 2016, 20:05:50 pm »
Hello

Please, do anyone know something about spaming registrations (most from india) to example same users with nick names like BlackwormIllumpele, llumpele, and so on, still with llumpele in name..

i have eshop with parfums and i works and promote only in slovakia, there is no reason for foregin registrations/visits..

is there any posibility to stop that spaming registrations? For now i only delete that users.

thank you have a nice day

I use this : https://www.rupostel.com/virtuemart-extensions/extensions/geolocator-for-joomla for sites suffering heavy spamming from specific countries

you can use the detection to block in the root index.php or registration etc

thank you, looks great.
for now i found out that in registration site  was missing capcha protection = because it was not enabled in virtuemart, only in joomla. So i enabled it in virtuemart and now spam is not coming. but better solution should be without capcha (it is annoying for all customers)

Registration is annoying for shoppers, too, and can lose sales, which is why I usually only use guest purchase.

Disable the options called "Only registered users can checkout" and "On checkout, ask for registration" in VirtueMart Configuration under Checkout tab.
