Spam deterrent

Filed Under Other stuff 

So this is a little update to my “Spam spam and more spam!” post. Thanks so very much to everyone for offering your help and suggestions. I was able to install something called “Peter’s Custom Anti-Spam Image Plugin for WordPress” (wow that’s a mouthful!) found here:

What this does is create a word that you have to type in a box in order to submit a comment. Supposedly this should stop the spam comments…but I don’t want to speak to soon if you know what I mean.

SOOOOO! I’ve tested it and it seems to be working. If you have trouble please let me know. I enjoy reading all the comments and certainly don’t want to deter anyone from leaving a little note.

Thanks again for all your help!

    Just testing out leaving a comment. Hope this takes care of the over abundance of junkie comments. Can’t wait to see what everyone is creating……

    Oooh – this is the first one I have seen that offers an audio option, LOL! Hope this works for you Holly. 80% spam is just ridiculous! Looking forward to the DT creations soon!

    I might have to try your widget. The spam is absurd! Good grief… anyway, thought I’d share a fairy project. Have I ever told you how much I adore the fairies??

    Nice work by the DT! Looks like that are all having a grand time!
