  • Your question does not appear to relate to the Contact Form 7 plugin. You may get a better response if you ask your question in the general WordPress Support Forum.

    I am totally confused by your answer. Contact Form 7 plugin is the only comment forum I have except for Disqus both of which are entered at the bottom of my page.

    The only COMMENT widget I have is Contact Form 7 and it had been working fine until recently.

    Contact Form 7 is my plug in contact form and has been so for quite a time! All the other comments by Herbert are my own and have been added recently — NOT the Herbert on MY RECIPE PAGES & FAMILY GENEALOGY post that does not show up (for deletion purposes) in my comments plug in edit page. All the others do!

    WordPress itself has extensive Commenting functionality typically attached to all posts & pages. This is likely to be the source of your comment spam. Many people use Akismet to control this.

    Egad, I simply am not making my point. I have Akismet and found it to be much less effective than claimed. On a weekly basis I had do delete some fifty or more spam messages from China. I then had to go to my hosting service and put block filters on the IP addresses. Even that didn’t work.

    I finally found another plug in called ‘Bad Behavior.’ Finally my spam disappeared, not thanks to Akismet.

    My “comment spam” is not spam it is a screw up with Contact Form 7 and I cannot even go into my Dashboard to delete it, as it doesn’t exist. All my other comments show up, just not this one.

    Leaves me no option but to COPY all former comments and put them into a blog and leave Disqus as my only comment forum. I might even paste some of those comments into Disqus and leave it at that.

    Totally like the new Special Recent Posts FREE Edition plug in and would rather add a few more pages to it, than to this Comment Form that simply hijacked and inserted itself into my website.
