Comment spam plugin
The new version of SpamBam is out 1.2, it now allows WordPress comment spam protection to work alongside SpamBam.
To install the plugin simply create a folder called “spambam” in the “wp-content/plugins/” directory and place the spambam.php file in that folder. So your full path to the plugin should be “wp-content/plugins/spambam/spambam.php”. Once you have copied spambam to the folder, you need to enable it in the plugins section of the wordpress admin.
- Download the current release
- Unzip and copy the whole spambam folder to your
- Enable SpamBam in the WP Admin >> Plugins section.
SpamBam requires no configuration but if you wish to alter the delay option, by default SpamBam has a 30 second delay if it detects a comment spammer, you can change this in the spambam.php file to any value desired. The constant variable SPAMBAM_SPAMMER_DELAY is used to define the seconds delay. Change the following line (if required).
