Spam comments are a nuisance. I’ve just spent about half an hour going through comments posted to this site in the last week or so, most of which it has to be said were rubbish! However, there are better ways of dealing with this build up of bot-posted baloney (or is it balogna – tangent) automatically. WordPress does it’s level best to cut out most but some always gets through. Here I will go through a variety of methods to stop spam comments for good.
Well today I awoke to find news of the latest release of WordPress. A quick read-through of the changes sure brought a smile to my face. I’ve been a little out of the WP loop (pun… slightly intended), and had just started using my installation as the be all and end all of my site, the reliable and durable blog/cms I could safely keep coming back to. Instead of viewing it, as I do most other scripts I use and tinker with (often from opensourcecms.com), as a new chance to stretch my coding muscles – my eyes, fingers and brain I suppose!
