Support » Fixing WordPress » ‘You are posting comments too quickly’

  • Hi,

    Since a few weeks posters of my blog get frequently the following error if they’re trying to react:

    “You are posting comments too quickly. Slow down”

    The probleem is that it also occurs when they write their first reaction of, p.e., the day.

    I don’t have made any changes in WordPress or the scripts.

    Does somebody know the solution of this problem or maybe familiar with it? I can’t find a solution on the web. 🙁

  • I believe this thread has already been resolved elsewhere:

    Second google result for wordpress You are posting comments too quickly. Slow down


    I checked out the thread that nakedape referred to; however that’s not helping me out. I have emptied the cache and deleted all cookies, then left a comment and get the “you are posting too quickly” message. I can leave comments (when logged in), but it seems no-one who is not registered can leave a comment.


    (Should have added that I’m using WP 2.1.2)

    Sussed it… (and I’m sorry – this was mentioned in the post that nakedape referred to – I was too hung up on the date and time of the failed comment to realise that I had edited another post’s date and time and accidentally set it to the future – once that was changed to a date in the past, things started working again.

    Just turn off the ‘flood protection’ and everything is working fine again. 🙂
