A lot of spammers have been commenting on the entries in my weblog - fortunately, most are being stopped by the Spam Karma 2 plugin =)
However, I want to keep them from even posting their spam in the first place, so I'm wondering: Would it be possible to edit the "Comments" file for my theme to use two fields that have to be filled in a certain way in order to post a comment? If so, what code would I need to add (and what would I have to manually change for it to work with my site) to accomplish this?
- The first anti-spam field is one that has to be left blank - when a comment is submitted, if that field is not blank, then the person can't post their comment. I haven't decided yet whether that field will be blank from the start, or if there will be text in it that the user must remove to make it blank.
- The other will be a blank field that has to be filled in with a particular word - if that word isn't used (either by being left blank or having something else typed in), the user can't post their comment.
In other words, if either (or both) of the two fields are filled in improperly, a comment can't be posted - if both fields are filled in properly, however, then the comment can be posted.
If you can help me out with this, I'd greatly appreciate it =D
