Dealing with those pesky WordPress Spam Registrations

Faced with the above dilemma I thought to myself; “Please NOT another plugin to deal with this scourge!”

The solution for me was pretty simple enough, though as the site in question does have Gravity Forms installed and collects additional information at registration – much like we do here on Server Observer for candidate authors.

The catch all address for registration on WordPress installations is …./wp-register.php so all I did was logged in to Cpanel and created a 301 (permanent) redirect from the wp-register.php address to the specific address where the author registration form is hosted. No plugin bloat – just easy, quick and simple.
