Features

  • remove spam comments in bulk (in 1 or 2 clicks)
  • block spammy IP addresses to prevent further spam
  • automatic spam protection (coming soon)

The Possibilities are endless

Upcoming versions of the plugin will enable you, the plugin user, to leverage the power of the entire JG Spam Fighter user community. Every time a user, such as you, blocks an IP address and removes the spammy comments (that’s all accomplished by a single click in the plugin), the spammy IP address will be reported. As the database of spammy IP addresses grows new features will soon be available, based on that collected user input. For example, you may be able to have spammy comments automatically removed and even outright blocked based on some user-defined conditional settings. Say, if an IP address has been reported by other users 100 times, go ahead and block it on my site too. As the developer I am open to your input here! The possibilities are endless! Please feel free to contact me with any ideas and functionality requests.

FAQ

What is JG Spam Fighter?

JG Spam Fighter is a simple to use WordPress plugin that enables you to leverage the power of the user community and keep your WordPress site clean of spam comments.

How does JG Spam Fighter Work?

When someone makes a comment on your blog the WordPress takes a note of the IP (computer) address from which the comment was made. Spammers, whether robots or real persons, usually make more than one comment from one such IP address. More like dozens if not hundreds of them. Based on the above JG Spam Fighter Plugin makes it easy for you to identify and remove spammy comments in bulk AND block the spammy IP addresses as well, to prevent further spam.
