I have had some new user log ins to one of my websited that I did not set up? How and why did this happen as its a bit worrying?
I have deleted them but not happy that it wa

Good question, awesome answers.
Thanks,
Jae

Sharlee has you covered, though I am surprised it has happened with the hosting we have at WA

Hi Dave
Just to clarify that it is nothing of the hosting's fault. Some low-lifers has nothing better to do than to scour the internet and they do get to websites organically. If that setting is ticked so that anybody can register... well then anybody can.
Wishing you an awesome day, Dave! ;-)

Cool thanks for clarification

Hi Paul

In your WP BackOffice - go to Settings > General and in Membership, make sure that "Anyone Can Register" is clear.

Hope it helps!

Thank you. Done

Awesome! ;-)
Enjoy a lovely day!

Go to settings then general Refer image below in your dashboard and untick the box in membership where it states anyone can register this will stop this
Also if you do allow someone don't give the admin rights either that way they have full control of the website.

Thank you that was nice and easy.

Most welcome enjoy the rest of your week ahead

On one of my sites I have a section where people can respond for more information but all I seem to get is people spamming

Is there a way to stop these irritable people<

Hey Paul,

A free WordPress plugin works great for me. See screen print below.

Hope you find this helpful.

I also recommend Akismet :)

There are also many other spam blocker plugins on Wordpress. You'll find them by going to plugins (within your Wordpress dashboard), clicking Add New and searching for it.

Hi,
I can recommend Askimet as well... It's the most popular spam filter for WordPress.
Regards,
Tim

I would recommend Askimet, it's free and it filters out spam comments and holds them for your review before they're posted

Hi,

Whenever you key-in your question, a dropdown list of blogs will appear so that you can try to solve your problem with these quite similar question. Just ignore them and click on "x" at the end of right side. This will let you type in your main message in the box.
After that click submit - There you have your support ticket submitted.

Hello Paul
You could reach the support by clicking on Help Center on the left side of your homepage. Then choose support and send him a letter in which you explain the problem.
This happened to me twice and the support helped me to fix it
