Hello everyone! I’m running a community blog and I all my authors can publish posts immediately (role = Author). Now, I want some plugin or a snippet of code to stop post flooding. This hasn’t occurred to me yet but I’m just taking precautions. By saying flooding, I mean if someone registers and starts hitting Publish button on multiple posts simultaneously.
If a minimum delay between two posts by the same author could be set somehow, the problem would have been solved. Or maybe there are existing plugins but my search result doesn’t show up.
I’m looking for something in that line as well. Two days ago, I had a spammer post over 8,000 posts (during the night). I couldn’t even delete the site because it overburdened the server. I had to go into the DB and delete manually. (1 hour of time).
I have, however, found that ONE (of many) tools is the GeoLite (free) script and DB files that will actually keep out entire countries. I have found that certain countries are more of the “culprits” of spamming than others.
