Tackback spam in Forum

    Hi Guys

    I have disabled pingbacks and trackbacks from my forum, but I still get spam comments on my forum posts. They are not visible at the site, but I get an email notification, with a link to my comments section, where I can delete them.

    Is there any way to stop this spam?

    Thx

    Are you sure they aren’t blog comment spam?? Akismet does a good job at blog comment spam though , bbPress also has integrations with Akismet.

    Dear Robkk

    Thanks for answering. I am pretty sure it’s a trackback, since the mail I am receiving says “New trackback on your post …”. If it was a comment spam, I would be able to see the comment, right?

    The mail I get also states that You can see all trackbacks on this post here:http://openmindtrips.com/forums/topic/tobacco/#comments, but the trackback is never visible in the front end. Do you think Akismet is useful when it comes to preventing this kind of spam?

    Thank you 🙂

    @amelliya
    , that is a topic you linked to rather than a forum…

    That said you shouldn’t be getting any trackbacks on any forum/topic/reply 🙁

    I’ll go have a look around and see what I can find and if needed add a fix for the next release 🙂

    Oh, sorry for the confusion, I am pretty new with bbpress 🙂

    But thank you very much! I look forward to hearing more from you.

    It might be that some comment form data is on the template that bbPress is inheriting.

    https://codex.bbpress.org/theme-compatibility/getting-started-in-modifying-the-main-bbpress-template/

    You can create a bbpress.php and remove any comment code , or you can install this plugin and disable comments and trackbacks on bbPress post types.
