BlogSpam Plugins for clients
Wordpress Blogspam Plugin
To kick-start development I wrote a simple wordpress plugin which would automatically mark submitted comments as spam, after testing via this service. This plugin is located upon the official Wordpress website, and should be installed from there:
Installing The Plugin
To install the plugin simply unzip the downloaded .zip file into the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your wordpress installation, and then activate from your admin panel.
Once activated incoming comments will be tested, and any that we mark as spam will automatically go straight into your spam queue - where you can examine them if you wish.
If you're running version 1.3 of the plugin, or later, you'll find additional configuration options for the plugin by visiting the "Settings | Blogspam" section of your admin menu.
Currently there is only a single option allowing you to specify an alternative testing source, but additional options may appear in the future.
Chris Searle contributed a plugin for Drupal, which works in a similar way to the Wordpress one - comments will be rejected automatically once it is enabled.
The Drupal plugin is hosted upon the Drupal site:
The popular social microblogging service, like twitter, comes with native support for our service.
Write Your Own Plugin?
If you use a blog engine, or forum, which isn't listed here you might have to write your own plugin to test incoming comments - hopefully the API documentation, and sample code should be sufficient reference material to get started - but if you have any questions please do get in touch.
