Woo, that what I want! In general, many spam users is come from a proxy server — for avoid webmaster ban their IP. Before found this plugin, I used a few plugin to stop brute force attack, via brute force attack plugin, I can log a few IPs which be banned by these plugins, I found many of these brute force attack users is hidden behind a proxy server, a problem I can not find a plugin which can detect and stop and filter these spam users.  Before this plugin, I can not find any this kind of bbPress spam filter plugins, now all these users from proxy will be stopped, if they can not register or loging my forums, of course they have no way to post spam on my forums,  this save my time, this save my money, this is a great work!

Also you can enable or disable google reCAPTCHA protection for bbPress New Reply Form,  for bbPress Login Form, for bbPress Registration Form. I feel very happy, this is very helpful to stop spambot.

What is spambot? Based on Wiki

A spambot is a computer program designed to assist in the sending of spam

Just like I said, I don’t want to waste my time to read and delete spam posts day and day, the plugin used best methods to stop spam, after used this bbPress Login / Reister Pro plugin, I did not have new spam users, my suggestion for the author is: if this bbPress plugin can sent notification to all users and after a few days, delete all inactivate users automatically, that will save my life.

Check the demo at here, I really like this, because this make my bbPres forum login form looks pretty and user-friendly, the author said they have chosen 12 pretty background image for login / register forms, I found these images is pretty, I used another image — “Children”, because I love these lovely children, author saying they are adding new pretty background in next version.

To enable image as background of register form, it is very easy, I logged in admin area, open “bbPress Login Pro” menu, click “login background” sub menu item, all images are here, just choose one form a select box, then click “submit” button, background of bbPress login form has been changed by preset pretty background images. Not sure is it possible make it looks like a slider? I hope my product images can shown in register form, it there are a product slider, it will motivate customer to register as member.

Customize bbPress Login Page / Register Page Logo

In their official feature page, they said:

  • You can custom Login Logo Image to add your own custom logo on login form / register form, please check demo at https://www.bbp.design/wp-login.php, you will find the default wordpress logo image has been changed as our specified logo image

Good feature, I like this too.

Login and Logout auto redirect based on user roles

I love this bbpress login redirect feature, I have a few user roles, my woocommerce customer, my forum users, some  co-author… and so on. After activated this plugin, I managed my users like this: when customer role users from woocommerce  logged in,  customers will be  redirected to account page, when they logged out, customers will be redirected to products page, from analysis records, I found sometimes, these users purchased new products after redirected to product  list page.

This feature is easy to enable in bbPress Login Pro admin panel,  open “bbPress Login Pro” menu, click “redirect setting” sub menu item, all roles has been listed on setting panel, what I need to do is just checked roles and select redirect method from 3 redirect method:

  •  Default, this means do nothing and just follow  bbpress and wordpress default behaviour.

  •  Referer, this means after logged in, user will be redirect to the same page before login

  •  Redirect to Certain URL, you can enter any page URL in your domain, users which have related roles will be redirected to this URL after they logged in.

The pugin author said if disable bbpress, this module will works well on wordpress.
A test and demo can be found at register as a member and login,  user with subscriber role will be redirected to support forum, not the wordpress default home page. After logout, you be redirected to the product page, not wordpress default login page.

Good feature.

Also there are more features, for example:

  • Disable Top Admin Bar for Non-Admin Logged-in Users
  • Custom bbPress style
  • Add bbPress login link in bbpress forum index pages or bbpress single forum pages or bbpress forum pages or bbpress topic pages.

….

Basically, I believe this plugin is the best bbpress spam prevention solution. Just check their DEMO page, you will like it too.
