Blogging help! Spammers and comments
Hi All, I'm new to blogging so trying to figure things out as I go, however I am being hit by spammers of late. I get loads of comments on my Wordpress blog, which have a link to a site which doesn't exist. Any way to stop this or limit it?
There is a wordpress plugin called Akismet that's included in default wordpress installations. Akisment filters out most spam comments (at least on my blog), it does a pretty good job overall.
