Comment Spam

Nov 18, 2011 at 8:36 PM

I don`t know how but just days after I launched my site I am getting killed with spam comments. I mean I get more comments than visitors! There seems to be a simple solution to this, DISABLE URL IN COMMENTS! I am not sure why this feature is not a part of, or if it is please post a link to instructions. If the spammers can`t put a link back to their sites this should almost eliminate spam comments. Please help.

Set your comments to moderate and set up the "Rules & Filters" to black list after 1 rejection, "block on delete", and "automatically add IP Address of Comments you Reject to the black list". Your SPAM will end in a few days, at least mine has (for now).

So I tried that for a bit to see if it works, no luck I am still getting comment spam,

There must be some kind of a software out there that actually looks for blogengine sites, I mean I am getting more spam than actuall visitors.

Disable URL in comments option would be such an easy solution to this.

Do you have CAPTCHA enabled? If not enable that to keep the bots from posting.
