rah_comment_spam

It’s all about:

  • Prevent comment spam by adding various custom filters via simple interface under Extensions.
  • Set comment message lenght limitations: min and max, words and characters.
  • Limit amount of link untill comment becomes spam.
  • Define spam words and substrings, and set the limit how many spam words are needed untill comment becomes spam.
  • Customize error message that is shown to people who post spam.
  • Define a custom hidden spam trap field.
  • Change the spam protection method.

Hi!
Nice plugin, thx!

Do you plan add comment count per minute limit?


Best regards

Thanks, calm :)

Nope not at this point atleast. Because it would require own logging. It could limit little some spammers, but usual automatic spam comes from mass amount of different IPs. (Side note: I believe that identifying IP-logging is illegal in some countries, and comment posting makes it identifying. Option should be completely optional).

But maybe in future, after 4.0.8 TXP release and all that.

Re: rah_comment_spam

Small typo:

Link to documentation in the interface under Extensions says:

Documention

Thanks for the very useful plugin since I get swamped by comment spam lately.

Hi Jukka,

Great plugin and nice to be able to block evil words. I’m not having any luck with blocking [URL] though – all your other built-in examples work. Can you take a look and see why? Thank you.

Thank you jakob for reporting this :-)

That was an issue with case-sensitivy, or atleast partially: all needles written capitals didn’t get flagged. This was caused, because I forget to turn needles to lower-case, but remembered to turn comment message to lower-case, leading to issue where those two counter-parts can’t match. Bug fixed in the new version, 0.1.3; now matching is not case-sensitive.

Changelog of rah_comment_spam version 0.1.3:

  • Fixed forgotten strtolower().

Re: rah_comment_spam

Installed this a few days ago after I started to get some attention from those damn comment spammers. Seems to have done it’s job rather nicely – and great admin interface!

Keep up the good work!

Doug.
