  • Hello,

    I am receiving a huge amount of comment spams everyday, how can I stop receiving comments all together so I do not use anymore space in my database for nothing?

    Thank you,

    Ben

  • Apparently you have to change Settings -> Discussion -> Other comment settings -> Users must be registered and logged in to comment

    go to settings -> discussions and turn off the comments.

    Hi Rohan,

    It looks like you still receive comments in your admin panel by doing so.
    They show as pending but still come trough.

    In your stylesheet add:
    #respond{display:none !important;} replacing “respond” with whatever id your theme uses if different.
    No one can comment without a commment box.

    ^ Since most spammers are actually not humans but bots that parse html and disregard css, I don’t think this solution gonna work.

    That’s true but I’ve tried it on a number of sites and it’s worked.

    Thank you,

    Yes I will try that.

    I know bots look for the tables id.

    I will try both solutions.
