Support » Everything else WordPress » Plugin For Post Spam

  • Okay, So recently my friend had been getting a LOT of spam on his site likely from robots because when we search for the user the user does not exist. So members in the site cannot post because we have to keep mass deleting all the post. So we are wondering if their is a plugin to stop spam. By a LOT of spam i mean around 360+ per day.

    If you mean comment spam as in people leaving comments on posts then consider using Akismet and Cookies for comments.

    It’s an effective combination. This one is good too IMHO.

    If you do mean spammy posts (and I hope you don’t mean that) then don’t let people register onto your installation to be able to create posts. Limit them to Subscriber role only if you must let people register.

    Thanks, but they aren’t registered users somehow if we search up their account NO accoount exist in their username. And yes i do mean Spammy Post :/

    Wait, so you have 360+ spam posts and not spam comments? Share link please?

    I’m getting the same problem links in my post from out of nowhere. When I add a link it changes into something else. even in some of the features of wordpress itself there are links suddenly to (click to continue > by coupon companion plugin). I have no idea where this came from. I didn’t install it. and I cant find it on my site. Now now my entire site has been compromised and I feel I have to start all over again.

    Ok, while writing the above post it dawned on me that it wasn’t my wp blog that had been hacked, it was my browser, I somehow downloaded a (coupon companion) browser add on jan 19th 2013 at 2:32pm and something else that went with it at the same time. anyway I checked out the browser add-ons and there it was. I couldn’t disable it from there but was able to delete it it from add delete programs. now all is well with the wp world again.

    I’s definately recommend Akismet for comment spam. It’s very popular (many downloads), i use it myself. Works well.
