How to protect WordPress Events Manager from spam
Do you have a lot of events on your WordPress site? Perhaps you want to add events on your WordPress. You will need a plugin to create events.
Events Manager https://wordpress.org/plugins/events-manager/ allows you to create and publish different types of events on the site. The plugin adds a form to the page through which users can subscribe to the event.
