    • I was having a lot of subscribers to my site, but they seemed to be suspicious, so I added wp spam sheild which did not stop the bots. so then I deactivated that ans activated clean talk, that stopped the bots.
      I am wondering if I should have added the word fence and if it would conflict with it?
      Should i add it now? Thanks.
      Also I want my site to have an open blog that is moderated but they do not have to register to comment. I also want a private forum that you need to register to join but it looks like my forum can be seen by anyone. any suggestions.

      • Hi Kathy,

        We really like Wordfence Security, and it’s very highly rated. But I wouldn’t advise using more than one security plugin, as they may conflict with each other. If you’re getting good results with Clean Talk, there’s no reason to switch. If this changes in the future, you can always switch to Wordfence Security at that time.

        You can configure your comment settings in your Dashboard, in the Settings > Discussion panel.

        For private forums, the safest bet is bbPress. This plugin is authored by the makers of WordPress. You can get the details here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/bbpress/.
