Advanced Invisible Anti-Spam

by Matt Keys

Overview


Anti-Spam solutions that require your users to fill out captcha’s are frustrating for actual humans, and not that great at stopping bots.

This solution works automatically without any user configuration, and puts no additional burden on your users. After activation this plugin will go to work stopping: comment spam, spam bot registration, and bbPress spam.

Key features:

  • Fully compatible with wordpress caching plugins or even more advanced server level caching solutions (like WP Engine uses).
  • Utilizes randomly generated and rotating token field name and token value, which stops more clever bots that might try caching the ‘solved’ field.
  • Anti-spam field is randomly placed within the form on page load to make it difficult for spammers to target the field.
  • Developer friendly with filters and actions
  • Lightweight, clean, and efficient solution to comment, registration, and bbPress spam
  • Uses native JavaScript to avoid jQuery dependancies

Requires JavaScript be enabled in client browser (Users will see a warning if JavaScript is disabled)
