Protect Yourself!

Protect your website from Spammers

Getting fed up with comment spam?

We’ve all been there. Unfortunately it’s a common occurrence on WordPress sites. The good news is there are several ways you can protect yourself. We can start by simply adjusting our discussion settings. I found this website that goes through the settings:

Making users register before commenting may deter regular users, but at least you can grab IP addresses, which will allow you to block them.

These are the settings I use:

Getting fed up with registration spam?

The previous article mentions some anti-registration plugins. However, there are a few I highly recommend. All of which I use myself:

Stop Spammers Spam Control (formerly Stop Spammers Registration)
https://wordpress.org/plugins/stop-spammer-registrations-plugin/
iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security)
https://wordpress.org/plugins/better-wp-security/
Wordfence Security
https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordfence/
Ban Hammer
https://wordpress.org/plugins/ban-hammer/
and Captcha by BestWebSoft
https://wordpress.org/plugins/captcha/

Getting fed up with form spam?

There are a few ways to stop spammer bots from filling out your forms. The Askimet plugin is the most popular choice, but it’s not free.

Below is a useful article:

I recommend the honey pot method.
