Or use Disqus as your commenting system. I think they are great. Or make comments not appear automatically (will require some time) and be held for moderation.
Thanks sevenspark. Conditional CAPTCHA for WordPress works great, it kills spam for me 100%
biyanpasau saidThanks, will this stop sending spam comments notifications on email as well? I used another plugin which filters comments but still was sending spam comments on email.
How about anti captcha: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/anti-captcha/
I never received any mail from that plugin.
hi – any recent updates/ideas to reduce WP comment spam, beyond akismet? many thanks…
thanks, I will try that one, installed it and it looks good, i like country-blocking..
I have a different kind of problem. My contact form (from the Ausart theme) works independently from the captcha, that is to say, I can send the message without the captcha blocking it. I am not a developper so if anyone could give a tip, I’d be grateful.
