Maspik – Spam blacklist

Description

Are you getting spam emails through your contact forms?
MASPIK will help you stop spam coming through your Elementor + CF7 forms.
Block/blacklist specific words, IP, country, languages, and more – MASPIK blocks the spam that ReCaptcha doesn’t block.

If you look through your spam emails, you can often find the same words repeated. Sometimes they are in a foreign language, and other times they are from the same country or even IP.
One example of common words in spam email is “Eric Jones”, “SEO Ranking”, “Automatically submit your website”
MASPIK can block form spam emails from being delivered to your inbox!
Other spam blockers only work in the back end, but MASPIK will block manual spammers too!

Features:

Blacklist words in a text field
Blacklist words in the Email field (regex accepted)
Blacklist words in the textarea field
Blacklist a specific IP address
Blacklist a specific country or countries
Allow only a specific country
Block text fields that have more than X characters
Block spam if the textarea contains more than X links
Block or allow the email if it contains (or doesn’t contain) one character from the main site language.
Custom phone validation (Add your regex format)
Spam log, which you can clear at any time
Block forms devoid of source URL (Elementor forms only)
Connect your site to our Spam API (licence required – optional)

If a bot or spammer fills out your form with any of the above, the form will NOT be sent, and they will receive a validation error.

Note:
The plugin allows you to manually blacklist the words you select.
Each website has different needs, so be careful with the words you choose to blacklist. For example, if you are a digital marketing agency and block the word SEO, you will likely lose some valid leads.

MASPIK is Free!

MASPIK will stop Contact Form Spam (Elementor and Contact Form 7). We plan on supporting more forms in the future.

Where do I set this up?

In the WordPress dashboard menu, look for the MASPIK plugin and click on “settings”.

Will MASPIK slow down my site?

No.
I wrote this plugin in high-quality code and not in CSS/JS. (CSS/JS running in the front end is what slows down websites.)

Just installed this on a website with CF7. Soon to be using it on my elementor websites. Just a shame it's not compatible with other contact forms that are much cleaner and easier to use than the two it currently supports. I am a big fan of the current Piotnet Forms plugin due to its clean, small size and powerful tools that it offers. One thing it is missing is what you offer. What is the list of form generators you are going to support? Is it a case you offer a pro version that opens this to multiple forms and allows you to bolt on new ones based on this fee? I can't find anything out of the box that does what your plugin currently offers for WordPress. the only other option is what email clients i.e office 365, gmail etc, have when it comes to blocking spam emails. I would offer 5 solid stars if the support was there. I feel you are missing a trick with this plugin and could potentially make a really powerful plugin that 3rd part developers would jump on board in helping it be compatible. Keep up the good work either way and I look forward to future support.

Great plug-in, just in the 0.5.8 update, I seem to have lost the “spam log” page.

Still being tested on 3 sites, this plugin seems very effective. I just translated it into French. I appreciate the many settings available, even free. Good job!! Regards. Jean
