Defeat automated spambots (even the new 'learning' bots with dynamically named hidden fields) by adding a client side generated checkbox.
Works beautiful. It is harsh on automated spam, and easy to genuine commenters. Does not block real comments because it displays a reminder if someone forgets to check the box. I am not getting any spam now :-) Awesome!
Works really well and simple to install. My site had started to be targeted by spam-bots with loads of the usual spam comments every day, and it was getting a hassle to keep deleting them from the Akismet spam file.
With this plugin installed, I get maybe one or two spam comments a week and these seem to be human-written ones, no automated spam any more.
Only slight issue I found was some unnecessary formatting of the 'tick to confirm you're human' box which was a bit of a pain to overwrite with css (see thread in forum), but not a huge issue.
Thanks guys :)
and works like a charm!
I could not believe preventing spam commenting would be as easy as setting up a check box in the comment form.
GASP just works very fine.
I had to remove lots of spam each day from the spamfolder. Thanks to GASP it has been reduced to 0.
I love this plugin! I would love to be able to pair it with bestwebsoft´s contact form plugin though. Can the makes create a shortcode that will call up the checkbox on ANY form provided on the same page?
Unfortunately I´m not good enough in coding to do it myself.
Works like a charm!
