WU – Block comments


This plugin provides a possibility to block comments based on words of a predefined list. The built-in lists of wordpress only allow to send comments to the moderation- or to the spam-queue but not to block them completely. This is remedied with this plugin, which allows to block comments based on a definable list.

Attention #1: Use wordlist with care, there is no logging of the blocked comments!

Attention #2: It will also match inside words, so “press” will match “WordPress” as well!


  • This is the message shown when a comment is blocked.
  • This is the settings section in the discussion settings.
  • This shows the counter in the section "Right Now" in the dashboard.


  1. Upload the directory wu_block_comments to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Click on the ‘Settings’-Link in the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress. This will redirect you to the ‘Discussion’-section in the settings.
  4. Scroll down below the comment blacklist


How can i see what was blocked?

There is no way to see that as this is not logged.

You’ve defined a word to be blocked which was contained in your comment. Also check for parts of words which might be contained.
