[Resolved] Spam through Meta Slider
Hi there. I’m having a little unusual problem I think and have been looking around for a solution but haven’t found any. These are the details of my site and Meta Slider version:
The issue can be found here: TBA
The preview works: Yes
It works with other themes: Yes
It works when I disable all other plugins: Yes
Meta Slider version: 2.7.1
The problem I have is not a visual one… I am receiving rather odd spam comments associated with Meta Slider. So far I’ve gotten 2 comments for separate sliders set up for the website I’m working on. These are the details of the last comment I’ve received:

(I’ve not tried to click on any of the links associated with the comment, neither would I recommend it…)
In the “In Response To” column, it lists the title of the Meta Slider. When I click on the link, it brings me to an empty single post page (as though the slider is an actual post).
This has not happened before, however I understand that the person I’m building the website for does get a lot of spam through his current website. I hope to find a solution to prevent this from happening as it feels like a security flaw. As the site is not yet live and I’m still blocking robots access, I’m afraid it will only get worse once it is.
Any feedback is great. Let me know if any other information is required.
