Stop Spam comments on your WordPress blog with Antispam Bee

Antispam for your WordPress commentsDon’t you get tired of the #spammers having nothing else to do then to spam your blog with bs comments just so they can link to their bs blog or website?

I know I am! And I found 2 plugins that looks promising. I just installed the Antispam Bee and I have tested SI Captcha. They seem to work fine.

CaptchaJust now as I’m writing this I’m using Antispam Bee. This plugin has a lot of good settings in English after you install it. The plugin site is in German I think? Well I don’t speak it so I could be wrong. And the Captcha plugin. The captcha looks good under the comment box…

The Bee takes care of spammers trying to comment. But it also checks the Pings. Like that. A cool thing I miss is an anti linking to my blog you non related blog or content of any kind spammer. Is there such a thing? If you now of any please make a comment or send me an e-mail.

Do you know of any good plugins for #Wordpress that can fix this spammy problem?

Then comment….

Let’s test this Bee in action. Are you a spammer? Then make a comment now and let’s see if the Bee works.

 

Use WordPress Shortlinks For Jetpack Sharing Buttons

Jetpack shortlinks pluginI was looking for this. A good plugin to shorten my long links when sharing posts to Twitter and other social media. I tryed a few before but always disabled them after a week. This plugin is great.

Plugin author Jeremy Herve has done a great job with this easy fix. Jetpack has a shortener that you can turn on if you open Jetpack. Make it active and then this plugin Jetpack shortlinks for sharing buttons will take care of the rest for you.

This is how you fix this.

Login to your WordPress dashboard. Open Jetpack. Then find WP.me and click on learn more. That’s it. Then just install the plugin Jetpack shortlinks for sharing buttons and your set up.

Jetpack

You can download the zip file and upload it to your plugin folder or do it the easy way. Copy  (Jetpack shortlinks for sharing buttons) and paste it in the plugin search box. Now install it. I like it when it just works. Don’t you?

See the screen shot below.

I use Jetpack’s sharing buttons on my blog and you should to. They are built by WordPress for WordPress. I’ll stick with them.

This is how the links will look when your all set up.
