=== Plugin Name === Contributors: tobias382 Tags: comments, spam Requires at least: 2.9.0 Tested up to: 4.1.1 Stable tag: 1.1.0 Adds a hidden text field to the comment form to trap spam bots. == Description == This plugin works by adding a textarea field to the comment form that's hidden using a CSS style. Since bots don’t generally detect CSS like this, they proceed to fill out the field like any other field. This implies that they aren't a human (or they wouldn't "see" the field with CSS hiding it) using a browser, in which case the plugin marks the comment as spam. This seems to catch the vast majority of spam with very few false results and doesn't require contacting a third party service like most spam plugins. == Installation == 1. Upload `spam-honeypot.php` to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory 1. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress 1. Be sure that your theme implements `<?php do_action('comment_form'); ?>` in comments.php and comments-popup.php 1. Optionally, go to the plugin's settings page and change the hidden textarea name and/or specify the submit button name; hover your mouse cursor over each of these fields for more details == Frequently Asked Questions == = How can I get a question added to this FAQ? = Just contact me at <email@example.com> with your question. I'll respond with an answer and, if it appears relevant to the plugin's userbase, I'll add it to the FAQ in the next release. == Changelog == = 1.1.0 = * Added a settings page allowing the name of the hidden textarea to be set and the name attribute value of the comment form's submit button to be specified * Added a check for the submit button value (if specified) to check_honeypot() = 1.0.0 = * Initial release.
