[resolved] Spam Commenting on a Page without Comments Enabled (5 posts)

    I am having a problem with my site. Every 10-20 minutes I get a spam comment from one of the pages on my site. The tricky thing is, there is no comment include tag anywhere in the code.

    The code for page.php is below:

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    
    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    
    <div id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    <h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2>
    <div class="text">
    <?php the_content('Read the rest of this page &raquo;'); ?>
    </div>
    </div>
    
    <?php wp_link_pages(array('before' => '<p><strong>Pages:</strong> ', 'after' => '</p>', 'next_or_number' => 'number')); ?>
    
    <?php endwhile; endif; ?>
    
    <?php edit_post_link('Edit this entry.', '<p>', '</p>'); ?>
    
    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>
    
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Can anyone help me?

    thats not spam, thats a pingback -- your linking to your posts or pages inside other posts

    Could you please explain further? I'm not sure I quite understand. I stated that I've received emails from outside entities advertising drugs and so forth via pages on my site. As far as I know, I'm not linking from any posts or pages from other posts.

    For example, here's a copy of an email I received when I got a new comment (I have put asterisks in the URLs of the links so no trackbacking can be done):

    Use an anti-spam plugin. Or two.
    (search for trackback spam to learn more)

    Do as Moshu suggested .. and please next time, explain yourself yourself a little better.

    In your second post above you said this:

    I stated that I've received emails from outside entities advertising drugs and so forth via pages on my site.

    Nothing in your first post sounds like that.

    Have a nice day.
