Just a brief post to say that I’ve added an extra thing for my comments as I was getting fed up with the amount of spam comments.
I’ve already installed Akismet but that still means having to go through the comments and check that a real one hasn’t been trapped.
Peter’s Custom Anti Spam Image Plugin for WordPress works a treat. It’s easy to install and there’s an extra “captcha” word to type in that a real human will have no problem with. You can add your own words to the list, just being careful to make sure that they’re not too long (no more than 6 or 7 letters).
The only thing missing is an audio equivalent so that visually impaired people can get the word spelled out for them. I’ll be on the lookout for that.
If you’re running a WordPress blog, this is a “must have” plugin. Get it for free from here.
