The Stop Spammers Plugin checks comments and logins 15 different ways to block spammers.
Here's the message that I see when I login to my WP dashboard:
Stop Spammers has prevented 9269 spammers from registering or leaving comments.
That's nearly 5,000 per month for the 2 months I've had it installed. I'd say that's good evidence that this is a great plugin.
Without this plugin my very low traffic web sites were getting dozens of spam registrations a day. I tried many other plugin solutions and none were effective. The number of various options can be intimidating at first, but once its set up Stop Spammers is positively the bee's knees. In less than a month its stopped over 25K spam registrations. Thanks Keith!
Just beware that you can be locked out of your own website if your ISP assigns you an IP that has already been blacklisted.
If that happens you will need to login to your website via ftp and rename the plugin's php file.
You can also try switching off your modem and switching it back on again.
What a relief! For some reason, the spammers and bots were hitting me hard starting a week ago. I installed this plugin late on a Friday night. On Saturday morning, only 1 was able to register but dozens were stopped. I was able to manually add the 1.
I just donated - thank you for a great plugin!
Works like a charm!
Used another plugin which helped a lot but a few comments were still being posted. After installing this it stopped all comments. Highly recommended!
I suffered badly from registration Spam, installed the plug-in and nothing bad comes through!
If you need WordPress to accept registrations but don't want the hassle of being spammed with hundreds of new members then you NEED this plugin.
I run numerous WordPress sites for myself and clients and this is the first plugin that gets installed on all of them. Simply fantastic.
I do wish it worked with caching plugins a bit better, but for the time it saves, is still worth 5 stars.
We get about 300-400 signup attempts a day, on average only one or two get through. Without this I'd have to remove signups from the site. Essential plugin.
