Support » Plugin: DMSGuestbook » Getting lots of spam – using Akismet

  • Greetings! A few months ago my DMSGuestbook plug-in began receiving lots of spam daily… They aren’t being caught, I have to manually mark and delete them… I have tried using the reCAPTCHA but I just get this error message on the page:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare _recaptcha_qsencode() (previously declared in /home/content/95/3424595/html/mysite/blog/wp-content/plugins/wp-recaptcha/recaptchalib.php:47) in /home/content/95/3424595/html/mysite/blog/wp-content/plugins/dmsguestbook/recaptcha/recaptchalib.php on line 55

    Any other way I can keep all this spam from posting to my site every day? Thanks so much!!

    Hi Allison

    Open the file admin.php with an editor and replace following code on the line 18:
    define('RECAPTCHAPATH', ABSPATH . "wp-content/plugins/dmsguestbook/recaptcha/recaptchalib.php");

    with this one:
    define('RECAPTCHAPATH', ABSPATH . "wp-content/plugins/wp-recaptcha/recaptchalib.php");

    After that reCaptcha should works.

    – Does Akismet recognize spam on your website? Check the dashboard on your wordpress admin area to see whether Akismet is works.

    – Did you activate Akismet on “DMSGuestbook -> Guestbook settings -> Captcha / Akismet”?



    Ich habe das gleiche Problem.

    …plugin/dmsguestbook/admin.php existiert bei mir allerdings nicht. Was kann ich tun?

    Vielen Dank.
    MfG sun
