Hi,
For some reasons, I am getting more spam user registration recently after latest update. I regenerated my Google Recaptcha but still getting spam registrations. Any idea how to resolve this issue?
Noting that I also have to disable the guest registration mode because I was getting orders created by some spammers.

Hi,

As far as I can see, the Recaptcha is working fine on your website.
Note that captcha can be easily circumvented by bots nowadays.
If you want a better protection, I would recommend other kinds of anti bot protections.

A solution like this is probably more effective and can complement the recaptcha plugin:
www.joomlashack.com/joomla-extensions/ospam-a-not/
This plugin works for both Joomla and HikaShop and is free.
Finally, another solution is this : extensions.joomla.org/extension/access-a.../easycalccheck-plus/
This integrate with 3rd party services to check if the email address being used has already been flagged as fake and if so, it directly cancel the registration. This works for Joomla, HikaShop, etc, any extension with registration on a Joomla website.
