View Full Version : Comment spam out of control
04-28-2008, 04:27 PM
I'm using latest verison of PixelPost, I was wondering how we can stop the comment spam? The only thing I see is a Captcha script in the extend section which is from 2007 and seems to not even be in use by the author. Just wondering because I got 30+ spam comments last night, 15 the day before, and it just seems to be growing..
thanks for any help
ps. I use moderation now but this in my opinion is not a good enough solution.

first idea is to use the built-in spam control features, most effective is the TOKEN.
Read about it here:
Additionally I suggest using either Akismet or Defensio filter

for me the best way is to use the script found in warm horizon template by theturninggate
you put "functions_comments.php" in your includes folder
you have to edit in the following line "telephone" by "surname" or any word you want
and in your template add this to your comment code and change the input name
<!-- SPTrap -->
<div id="sptrap" style="display:none;"><input class="input" type="text" name="surname" value=""> <label for="surname">ecris rien</label></div>
<!-- /SPTrap -->
IMPORTANT: you have to change sometimes the input name when you get some spam

I am getting completely overwhelmed by SPAM. I have Defensio enabled but it seems to do nothing.
I have enabled the <TOKEN> tag but I'm not sure where in the "image__template.html" file to put it. Also, I cannot find the "comments_template.html" file anywhere. I'm using the Delicious v1.1 template.
