The whole idea to this plugin is to keep spammer robots from posting on your blog, reducing the space taken by spam messages in the database, and preventing your blog from being a spam magnet.
You can ask anything, keep it simple and obvious, e.g. Is the sky Green? NO!. Doing this will stop stupid bots from being able to post.
You can configure the plugin in
Admin > Tools > Spam Stopper after installing it.
- Unzip and upload the php file to your wordpress plugin directory
Activate the plugin
In older version of wordpress (that don’t support wp_enqueue_script) you may need to include jquery in your themes header.php manually in order for the client side validation to function.
