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. This is a great little plugin! I've tried it on 2 sites I think. One it had captured about 30 spam comments it a week or so. My question is… are you likely to make it work with contact forms, not just comments? I installed contact form7 (I think it's called) and it would be FANTASTIC is it worked with this too :D

  5. I am using the Plugin "comment Guestbook" version .0.7.1 and I'm unable to submit a comment when the Anti-Spam version 3.5 in activated. When I deactivate anti-spam, I can submit comments but, I also get lots of robo-spam comments.
    This was working at one point. Any suggestions?

  7. My comment is about issues I am having with W3 Total Cache. I keep getting these types of messages across the top of my page in the site dashboard:

    Recently an error occurred while creating the CSS / JS minify cache: File "/home1/winoo7/public_html/wp-content/plugins/anti-spam/js/anti-spam-3.2.js" doesn't exist.

    I have fixed several by creating the file and adding it at the server thru the file manager, but now I have this one. This is the 3rd. time now?

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you,

      The latest version of the Anti-spam plugin is 3.5. And the javascript file should be 'anti-spam-3.5.js' and not 'anti-spam-3.2.js'.
      This issue could be because of CDN cache (if you use CDN) or because plugin for cache or plugin for minification cannot updates its own cache.

      P.S.: Why do you need captcha when you are already using Anti-spam plugin? IMHO you can disable the captcha plugin.

      P.P.S.: I would also not recommend to use plugins for minification because it saves you couple of kilobytes but gives you a lot of unpredictable bugs after plugin updates.

  8. I have installed this plugin on my website, one small suggestion, can you please link every website with some unique key.
