spam

  • I have made 3 websites, working on my 4th. The first 3 were for school projects, but my fourth will be a site I build for a client.

    Last week I started getting spammed on one, this week the second one is getting spammed (in the comment section).

    Help! Is Askimet the only solution? Is it a good solution?
    Can I disable comments and would that eliminate my problem?

    Sorry if this is posted somewhere already and thanks.

    Is Askimet the only solution?

    It’s probably one of the best solutions. I’d also suggest installing http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cookies-for-comments/

    You can certainly disable comments if you’re not interested in engagement; some folks live by not allowing comments, like Seth Godin.

    Keep in mind that many of the spam solutions can work together. For one of my sites, I use Akismet along with Cookies with Comments, the plugin esmi mentioned. You’ll have to see what combination works best for you.
