How do I Stop Spam Comments
« on: February 20, 2008, 10:20:47 am »

I have coppermine on my website for my gallery.
At the moment I am getting a lot of Spam Comments being left on my gallery, which have no relevance to the subject matter.
I have changed the setting so you have to be a registered user to leave comments, but this didn't stopped it. I have now had to turn off the comments completely but I don't want this as part of the type of business I am in, comments are important.
I have also made it that I have to activate their registration, but how do I know if they are genuine users or not?
Can anyone help me with ideas on what I can do?

Welcome Marisa to the cpg support board.

Since your new here are some pointers:
- Make sure to read the documentation
- Use the Search button of the board. Most questions, such as yours, have been answered before.
- When a first search does not give anything try rewriting the question.
- Make sure to read the sticky posts, they often contain good tips and support.
- Have fun using cpg

To answer your spam question; you can use the Captcha plugin for stopping automated spam comments.
You can find it here: http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=36319.0

Cheers
