As the title states, I need urgent advice about how to stop spamming. The site uses this free plugin: artic*lesss.c*om/art*icle-director*y-w*ordpress-p*lugin/ I broke the author.php page and I emptied ALL of the "registered" users and users_meta tables, but they still are registering and posting. Hosting provider has suspended the whole account twice in 7 days because of a high SQL usage. I don't want any of them to post on the site. How can I prevent them from doing that? The site runs the last version of WP. Please, any advice will be simply GREAT. Thanks.
