Spam stopper has been updated to v3.1 – and most of it has been recoded. Here’s the full list of changes:
- Added changelog to readme.
- Email validation bug squashed
- Cached comments now work; if user forgets to fill in antispam or makes a mistake (and the JS does not catch it) the users comment will not be lost.
- Redone entire code to make it more efficient
- Admin section added for changing the antispam question
- Form ID and honeypot trap added to form
- Fully localized
You can get the plugin from wordpress.org: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/spam-stopper/

Be honest, the title got you excited right? Anyhow…three of my wordpress plugins have been neglected of late so I have taken some time to do some bug fixing, add some new features, and get them working with wordpress 2.3. These three are Download monitor, Comment spam stopper, and sidebar login widget.
The ‘Secure and accessible contact form for wordpress’ has been a huge success (over 10,000 downloads!), and due to this I have decided to repost the plugin (and also its less known multi-user sister version) to further increase the popularity of this awesome plugin for the wordpress blogging platform.
The Secure & accessible contact form is designed to make contacting you from your website easy, accessible, and secure. It will definitely deter spam emails from arriving in your mail box!
Everyone hates spam, comment spam especially within wordpress. Sure there are plugins out there to reduce what shows up on your blog, a key player being Askimet, but I felt sorry for poor askimet, having to deal with literally thousands of spam messages.
Spamming is a common problem, I was getting (at least) 1000 spam messages a week, and I was sick of it. I’m sure also having so many spam messages stored in the database (even if identified by askimet) must have a speed impact on your blog.
Therefore I have created a simple solution to stopping spam at the source: asking a simple question that bots are too stupid to know in the comment form. I know only get about 10 spams per week, rather than 1000!
This post has now been replaced by an updated version which you can find here.
Created by Mike Cherim and I, this is a wordpress plugin that lets you have your own accessible, usable, spam-proof, secure, contact form on your wordpress blog!
I haven’t seen many contact form plugins for wordpress, but this is certainly one of the best, I can say that now. We hope you enjoy using this plugin, and that it saves you from lots of horrid spam.
