WordPress Discussion Options – limiting spam annoyances and problems

WordPress 1.3 has much better anti-spam features than previous releases. It’s still relatively simple however but despite the existence of third-party hacks and plugins to catch spam here’s how I configured my site:

  • Disable email notifaction when comments are held for moderation
  • Before a comment appears, the comment author must have a previously approved comment
  • Hold comments if they have more than 1 link
  • Fill the spam words textarea with words, urls, emails, IP address, etc that you want blocked.

You’ll catch just about all the spam that gets posted to your blog this way!
Later… Feck ya spammer! None of yer crap got through! 🙂
