Welcome to part 2 of our anti-spam guide. If you missed part one, check out part 1 here.

Now then, let’s get rid of those nasty comment spammers

Preventing Comment Spam

Comment spam is very common within WordPress. As a Toronto WordPress Developer I typically ensure I am always using Akismet to protect against spam.

If a website does not use the comment feature, I make sure to disable comments with this plugin: https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/disable-comments/

If your website does have comments enabled, I recommend installing Jetpack https://jetpack.com (built by the same people who created WordPress). Jetpack comes complete with their own built-in commenting system that helps prevent spam.

Never fear comment spammers again.
