We were getting many comments by bots on our site. The comments are directly posted to our web site without visiting our site. The bots are programmed to comment in this way. To deal with this issue, I have developed Combat comments bot plugin.
How to use?
After installing and activating the plugin, go to Settings → General and enter your unique Combat Comment Bot Secret Key. And then, save your settings.
How it works?
- This plugin adds nonce fields to comment form using the secrete key entered in general settings. The nonce will be unique to each post/page.
- Once a comment is submitted, the plugin will match the nonce. If the nonce is not found or does not match then the comment will not be posted to the site

Happy combating 🙂
