Dead simple and super lightweight anti-spambot WordPress plugin. No captcha, tricky questions or any other user interaction required at all.
It works and stops a LOT of spam :). Thank you!
I would be interested in buying this extension for a conventional website, not just for WordPress!
There also appear to be some scripted spammers out there that know about this plugin, changing the field name and/or changing the key generation algorithm (like appending an md5 hash of the client's ip address to the existing key) stopped all of those.
Perhaps future versions could have those tricks as configuration options?
I'd been getting a dozen spams a day on two of my sites. We installed "Stop Spam Comments" on one and "Cookies for Comments" on the other. Both worked perfectly. No more spam. Thanks!
This just works. Period.
Installed and waited. Still received the same amount of spam as before but noticed it also started hiding the IP addresses in the spam section of my comments on the admin side. Removed and IP addresses are showing up again.
One of the other spam blocking plugins we were using on our sites became compromised in the last couple of weeks, so we had to look for a new solution.
Stop Spam Comments has worked great for us so far. It runs in the background with no setup and keeps the spam out of our comment sections.
I was using other top rated plugins and although they stopped a lot, still 5 or so daily got through needing me to check. Now with this plugin, no spam at all.
It does what it says!
