Syahirs comment form on posts
AnonymousOctober 16, 2011 at 7:17 pm #2035
I was wondering what you are using for your comments on this page:
I found “Contact form with Captcha”, which looks very similar. However, it’s for contact forms rather than comments.
Is there another plugin for comments? Or did you modify this one to work with your comments?
I get a lot of spam, and I need to take preventative measures to stop this, and I like how your comment section looks on your site.
Akismet will kill 98-99% of your comment spam. It’s free for not-for-profit sites. (You’ll need to get an API key, which is free.) And you don’t have any options to configure.
Using a captcha will kill the rest. You can find some for comments here.Admin
I use captcha on top of Akismet, like Ken mentioned above. For the captcha, I use ReCaptcha, which actually takes the words that Google’s OCR software can’t recognise from its book digitisation project. This way it helps to both combat spam and help the book digitisation project.

Perfect. Thank you both.

Akismet says it’s only compatible to wordpress 3.1.4
You haven’t had any issues using this?Mod

Oh no.. it crashed my site.. everything’s gone…
Awesome. Now, time to choose one of these crazy captcha’s they’ve got. Have you seen some of these? You can do math, you can type the name of an animal appearing in an image, you can even “circle” a picture that doesn’t belong in a group. I think I’m gonna give the last one a try.Mod

True. Not everyone likes change.
However, if people can’t intuitively choose “the photo that doesn’t belong”… do we really want them having the ability to leave a comment in the first place?
