As a blogger, you might be thinking about that your spam comment area is increasing at a very rapid rate, whereas the real comments are not comparable. This is because internet is full of spam and waste stuff, autobots are filling the internet directory with crap.
Whenever I log in to my dashboard, I see 20-30 spam comments daily and it’s not an interesting job to empty your spambox again and again. So for sorting out this problem, I have tried many plugins to stop spam but nothing works.
But then I come across a plugin named as GrowMap Anti-Spambot Plugin. It is really an amazing plugin and works very smoothly and silently. This single plugin can solve all the problem of spams. You don’t need to install the combination of akismet and any captcha plugin.
About the author of GASP
This plugin is coded by the Andy Bailey from CommentLuv. GASP works by requiring those that wish to leave a comment, to check a checkbox before submitting the comment. Just a simple checkbox and no hard submission of captcha is involved.
How it works?
This plugin is intelligently written, i.e. since many of the spam comments are created by bots, the bots are usually programmed to fill all the fields on a form with specific information. This plugin creates a hidden field that can’t be seen by normal visitors. A bot can see this hidden field. If this hidden field is filled, it directly indicates that the commentator is spammer and it will be discarded.
Plus Points of GASP
- Your favorite readers will be able to comment easily by just checking a single box.
- No usage of captcha anymore.
- Works by simple activation, no hard configurations.
- Compatible with majority of WordPress themes.
