Spaminator problems (5 posts)

    I installed Kitten's Spaminator plug-in a few days ago because one of my friends suggested using it to combat the trackback spam. However, for some reason, the plug-in has been able to stop his trackback spam, but it hasn't stopped any of mine.

    And I honestly have no idea why it's not working at all. It can combat comment spam perfectly fine, but not the trackback.

    I think it might have something to do with my coding on either my index page or comments page that's still allowing the trackbacks through...

    Trackbacks use an entirely different mechanism inside WP.

    Yeah, I understand that Podz, but I thought that Kitten's spaminator was also able to stop trackback spam too...

    EDIT - It's so far been able to work for my friends in their fight against the trackback spam. So, that's why I'm just wondering why it's not working.
