WordPress Anti-spam plugin

Why humans should prove that they are humans by filling captchas? Lets bots prove that they are not bots with adding javascript to their user-agents!

Anti-spam plugin blocks spam in comments automatically, invisibly for users and for admins.

  • no captcha, because spam is not users' problem
  • no moderation queues, because spam is not administrators' problem
  • no options, because it is great to forget about spam completely

Plugin is easy to use: just install it and it just works.

=========================

What I know now about spam and spam-bots?

  • All spam-bots does not have javascript
  • Spam-bots submit all inputs from forms so forms are parsed before being submitted
  • If input have 'email' in its name than many spam-bots tries to submit email in it automatically
  • All spam-bots does not have Cookies (Cookie array is empty)
  • Spam is very complicated now, pretty "smart" and fully automated

  1. I use WP 4.1 and the playbook theme. When I updated to anti spam 3.5 my site was offline and I got the message "no direct script allowed" instead of the content. So I went back to 3.4 now. Sorry

      Sorry about that :(
      I already fixed that issue.
      You can now update to ver.3.5 and it should fork fine.

  2. First of all thank you for your plugin. I use MailPoet plugin to send out a daily newsletter. On the 12th of December I did send out my last email and everything work perfectly, Yesterday I tried to setup my mail and could not insert my posts because I got a blank screen where my posts were supposed to be. I disabled all my plugins and when I activated your plugin I got the error again. The list of the posts does not populate when your plugin in is activated. Could you please advice.

    I could send you screenshots of the screens.

  4. Hi,

    I've been having issues with my MailPoet Newsletter plugin, and had one of the devs look at it. They found two issues that were due to other plugins, and Anti-Spam was one. The error code is:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function add_option() on a non-object in /mnt/stor1-wc1-dfw1/379286/495875/www.dannybrown.me/web/content/wp-content/plugins/anti-spam/anti-spam-info.php on line 64

    This error means I can't install images or recent blog posts in my newsletter. Is this something that can be resolved, either in an update, or code, so I can still run Anti-Spam?

    Thanks.

  5. Hi, After your latest update (2.5 - 2014-11-26, update input names, 2.4 - 2014-11-25, update input names) I'm getting a FLOOD of spam comments. Before the updates, this was the BEST ever anti-spam plugin. Please do something to regain the crown. Thanks.

      You can revert to version 2.2 for now. Or you can use Anti-spam plugin in combination with some other plugin. I will update the plugin during this weekend.

  6. I have been using your plugin (very happily!) for about 2 months and it worked perfectly until the other day when I did the latest update. Now, I am seeing spam coming back through. Any ideas why?

  7. I just installed your Anti-spam plugin and it seems to works very well.

    I have one question: since there are no more spam comments should I disable Akismet?

    • webvitaly Post author

      I recommend you to disable Akismet.
      Anti-spam blocks spam pretty good alone.

  8. I like this plugin BUT have a problem with it, and am hoping you have a solution for me. If a person comments on my site who has NO gravatar, the gravatar of one of my other commenters is being used. How can this be fixed? What do I need to do to fix this? Please email me and let me know. Thanks!

  9. Does the Anti-Spam plugin block valid comments?

    Since installing the plugin I have received zero comments.There are hits on the comments page but they never appear.on the blog. I tested it an was able to submit a comment myself (while logged off from the website).

    Disabling the plugin results in a flood of comments. Enabling the plugin results in no (zero) comments at all.

    • webvitaly Post author

      Anti-spam plugin does not block valid comments.
      Anti-spam plugin works on your correctly.
      I submitted test comment and it worked great.
      Probably your site is not popular enough.
      Less than 0.5% of the visitors leave comments.

      P.S. You disabled right click on your site and you killed mine few extra minutes and made me mad while I was investigating your site.
      If you think that this plugin will protect your site from copying info - than you are wrong.
      If somebody will want to copy information - he will definitely do it but with much effort and bad mood.
      Wikipedia does not disable right click on their site, and many people copy its content and share it and Wikipedia gets more popularity from it - think about it.
      Just delete this plugin and ask people (somewhere on your site) to add a backlink to your site when copying information and this approach works great in the internet.

  10. Seems to work pretty well.

    Is it possible to have anything questionable be moved to the spam filter rather than just delete? I would like to see if there are any false-positives.

  11. The plugin seems to be working well, but all entered comments Are Converted To Title Case Like This. I'm not sure why, given that I know they aren't being entered that way (tested with my own comments).

    Any idea how to fix this?

    Thanks!
    Heather

      This problem is not related to Anti-spam plugin.
      Probably it is caused by some other plugin you installed.

      • My blog is brand new and I had only you, a 'floating icons' one, and a 'sidebar widget' one. It was the sidebar thing. Removed and things look right now. Thanks for the quick reply!

  17. I used to get at least 10 spam comments a day, every day.. despite have two "simple" anti-spam measures (an "are you human check box and a mathmatical challenge question). I hate these stupid questions because the commenters have to deal with them! Anyway, I installed Anti-spam, and IMMEDIATELY saw improvement. Not a single spam comment so far, and I was able to remove all my other anti-spam plugins. Great tool!
