    We have the Community Calendar on the below site and seem to be getting toms of spam users signing up to use it. They are not making post – but this is silly how can i stop this?

    Hi: I’m sorry you’re facing difficulties.

    When a user is not logged in (ie, if you accept anonymous submissions) we do add some anti-spam measures – a hidden honeypot – but, sadly, it’s not infallible.

    If you’d like to see stronger measures in place then pleaseĀ post a suitable request, beyond that though you’d either need to implement extra anti-spam measures yourself or else limit submissions to authenticated (logged in) users.

    Does that help at all or at least explain the current situation?

    Hi! It’s been a while so I’m going to go ahead and close this thread. If we can help with anything else, though, please don’t hesitate to create new threads as needed. Thanks!
