10 years, 4 months ago
Just looking for a suggestion on how to solve a problem.
Our use of wordpress requires that we moderate all comments that come to the site. We have a plugin set up at the entry level requiring verification before a comment is submitted.
However, spammers seem to be bypassing that completely and we often find spam sitting in our queue.
Does anyone know of any plugins that will help prevent the spam from even getting to the comment moderation queue? Especially spam that is not even being inputted via the submit comment area?
Sounds like you’re wrestling with trackback spam.

Install and activate Akismet -or- Spam Karma 2.
Then install and activate Bad Behavior.
For those who struggle with the Akismet

Bad Behavior, in particular, may be a big help here. But I’d pair it with either Akismet or SK2 for insurance.
Great – thanks for the suggestions. I’ll give it a shot
