Plugin Integrations

bbPress Auto Block Spammers

The bbPress Auto Block Spammers plugin allows your bbPress moderators to block spammers from using the forums.

The plugin allows moderators to block users without giving them additional access to the WordPress Admin Dashboard.

The integration works and requires the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website.

BuddyBoss Platform is a fork and forge of the BuddyPress plugin and bbPress plugin. Any plugin developed for the BuddyPress and bbPress plugin is supported by the BuddyBoss Platform.

You do NOT need to install the BuddyPress plugin or the bbPress plugin separately. BuddyBoss Platform acts as a replacement for both the plugins.
