[Resolved] You Appear to be a Spambot

  • I am a complete newbie when it comes to WordPress and web-sight design. I installed the plugin and created a Guest Book page. I then tried to leave a comment as a user and I got the message:
    —————
    You appear to be a spambot. Contact admin another way if you feel this message is in error

  • It seems to be related to the Growmap Anti Spambot Plugin. Do you know how to exclude your plugin from the spambot plugin or can you tell me a means to add spambot protection to your plugins page? Like a Captcha or something?

    Thanks, sorry for the noobie assistance questions!

    I use Anti-spam. This is really simple, works perfectly and also works with comment guestbook.

    HI, I took the suggestion about the Anti-spam and installed it on my website. It works great, I am just wondering, should I have the Captcha taken off in other places? Because I am thinking, if the Anti-spam works then do I really need the Capthcha? I am just using it on forms. Thanks!

    On my website I do not have any captcha anymore since installing the Anti-spam plugin. I haven’t got any spam entry since then.
