We have just moved from one hosting company to another -- and now have a much faster dedicated server. The folks at Website Movers moved our CPG site across, and it seems to be working well.
It needs to be upgraded (currently v 1.5.22). I think I could figure out how to do this myself, but I also need help figuring out how to stop the "spam" comments.
We have the Askimet plug-in and it has stopped 32,000 "spam" comments. We have turned off new registrations, and have limited comments to registered users. Notwithstanding this, there are still thousands of comments for me to delete. As these comments do not appear on the site until they are approved by me (and they are never approved) I wonder how and why people are bothering with them. They go nowhere.
So my project -- for which I am happy to pay -- is to upgrade CPG to the latest version, and to try to figure out how to stop the "spam" comments. I'd love to turn the comment feature back on, even for guests, but to try to prevent automated comments, etc.
If you can help, please contact me via the board. I will reply promptly. Thanks for your interest.
