I set the option for only registered users to make comments. Of course spammers could still register and spam, but its a lot easier to manage. I remember when I aloud guests to comment as well, and I'd get literally up to 100 a day. So yeah, not a good idea from my experience. lol

Is there anything that can be done about spam comments besides the following:

Registered users only - I still received several hundred spam comments even though I have only registered users to comment.
Any thing involving installing extra programs as I am not any type of person who does programming and I don't even install my own Coppermine, I pay for it to be done. I don't have extra money to install extra programs everytime I upgrade Coppermine.

Thanks.

Akismet is a plugin , you don't need programming skills to install a plugin
- Download the plugin
- Unzip/uncompress Zip file on your local machine
- Use your ftp program and upload it to plugins folder of coppermine
- Login as an admin to coppermine
- Go to configuration
- Install it by plugin manager
also you can use captcha plugin instead of akismet

The initial thread starter failed to resolve this thread. The first thread hijacker failed to do so as well. I will not allow this thread to become the spam-related question-dump. Use the plugins/mods that supporters have recommended. If you have issues with those plugins/mods, post actual questions on a thread of your own. Repeating generic questions over and over is just silly.
This is not the global spam-issues-thread. Locking.
