Stopping spam and front end sign up?
What is the best way to get users to sign up to your site without letting automated spam bots in and to make things frontendy?
I have searched and searched yet the only option I can find are those premium plugins (which have many vulnerabilities in them).
what I want to to do is simple:
Have a front end registration page with fields for login, password, why does this person want to join… and a custom captcha question… and then somewhere in the admin panel I want to be able to just approve or decline users based on what they put in the why do you want to join field.
I also want to make this the only place for users to register from… else spammers will just use the normal wordpress sign up to get access.
How can I go about doing all of this?
