    Today someone/something joined my site VeganLinked.com becoming a user without and somehow they didn’t completing the required field “my vegan story”.

    This non-legit user did joined the same way also:

    https://veganlinked.com/profile/skyeramirez908/

    This didn’t start happening until after I installed the UserWP re-captcha. Before I installed that I noticed users being created that were not legit but they at least somehow had completed all the required fields, including the “Share your vegan story” field.

    Hi Jeff,

    I have tried few steps but it not allows me to submit with empty “my vegan story”.

    Please provide us FTP credentials so we can enable debugging the form submit to check why it accepts empty “my vegan story”.

    In the meantime I’m going to activate the GD Re-Captcha to see if that helps. I was told by Guust:

    Both have different options, and you can use both with the same keys.
    Just review the options after installation.

    So, I just activated it…
