[resolved] How to make WordPress moderate EVERY comment? (5 posts)

    Hi,

    Having problems with spammy comments getting thru my blog. Tried the Spam Karma fix...doesnt work. I know that one....downloading some patch and putting it into the Spam Karma folder....

    Set all the comments to be moderated in the admin panel....nope. The WordPress settings never helps at all. Maybe my server configuration is to blame?

    Can someone help me! Been tolerating this for a long time now.

    Getting a ton of spammy comments originating from certain blog comment software. Wish I could moderate ALL of them, but some ALWAYS seem to get through, especially on certain pages, ANY type of comment goes through.....GEEZ

    Disable Spam Karma. It bypasses the moderation settings.

    And use Akismet instead. Or in combination with Spam Karma.

    I actually got Akismet, Spam Karma and the highest moderation settings on, concurrently.

    The next level would be to disable comments on my blog totally.... :(

    Actually, I was just answering your question.

    No, Spam Karma is to blame. When you're using it, those settings *don't work* because Spam Karma bypasses them.

    Is that more clear?

    And I only use Akismet and Simple Trackback Validation. It stops almost all spam nowadays. Bad Behavior is quite good at stopping that stuff too.

    OK, will try and disable Spam Karma, and see if it helps. Didnt know that SK could also be part of the problem.

    Thanks.
