Stop Spammers

Priskribo

Stop Spammers is an aggressive website defence against comment spam and login attempts. It is capable of performing more than 20 different checks for spam and malicious events and can block spam from over 100 different countries.

Stop Spammers uses multiple methods for detecting spam and may be too aggressive for some websites.

In cases where spam is detected, users are offered a second chance to post their comments or login. Denied requests are presented with a CAPTCHA screen in order to prevent users from being blocked. The CAPTCHA can be configured as OpenCaptcha, Google reCAPTCHA or SolveMedia CAPTCHA. The CAPTCHA will only appear when a user is denied access as a spammer.

Created with a lot of hard work and maintained by Keith P. Graham (from 2010-2017). Thank you Keith.

Maintained (because I love this plugin and want to keep it alive) by Bryan Hadaway (since 2017).

If you also love this plugin and want to see it live on, you can help me maintain it on GitHub.

customize ‘Access Denied’ message format?

It does not read the HTML tags currently for the reject message, such as line breaks.
Solution is that I have to add the html_entity_decode manually into the plugin file.
I hope the upcoming release could make the small fix.

Thanks.

Thank you!

Immediately after the activation of the plugin, there is no more registration of spam bots on the site.

Stops spam user registration on woocommerce websites

Stopped bot user registrations as soon as it was activated. I searched around before downloading this plugin and others i tried just dont come anywhere near as good as this one for easy of use and user choices in the settings which i strongly recommend you look through if you get a minute. This works for people using the woocommerce plugin too which many other plugins dont. I can see the developers have put a lot of time and thought into this plugin and absolutely love it. Thanks a lot

Incompatible with WooCommerce checkout

In my specific install, this plugin has an incompatibility with WooCommerce that can cause WooCommerce checkouts to become non-functional. Specifically, the checkout/?wc-ajax=update_order_review page is sometimes intercepted by this plugin, and instead of the proper AJAX response, this plugin inserts its own output. You will get an ever-spinning logo during checkout, and you won’t be able to proceed with a purchase. Otherwise, the plugin seemed fine to me.

Wow! Just Wow! Stopped it in seconds of install

Sending a donation your way. My client had an issue since the last WooCommerce upgrade (maybe a coincidence in timing) and has been getting registration spam after registration spam. I have the site so locked down with security (I teach it) that we’ve barely gotten a comment spam in nearly a year. So I don’t understand how this was getting through.

You saved me hours of work trying to get this blocked. Thank you!! The spammers were hitting once it was installed because I saw them blocked in the logs. Within seconds of installation! I cannot thank you enough. Not a single bogus registration since using your plugin.
