    Well, I have disabled the comment option by not ticking comments in options >> discussion, I have also taken out the comment reference from index.php

    but comment spam is still coming through and also arriving in moderation.

    Any thoughts guys?

    thanks

    Hi Charles

    thanks. I have now renamed wp-comments-post.php - so will wait and see what happens.

    Moose: What does "flagged for Codex" mean?

    cheers

    and if anyone could enlighten me as to what "flagged for codex" is, would appreciate that.

    cheers

    It means that someone will be adding this Q/A to the soon-to-be official documentation. http://codex.wordpress.org/Main_Page
