How to Block or stop IP address to post comments in wordpress

Well it’s a while now and I’m starting to get frustratet with WordPress Blog. I have some huge bots or people spamming comments in my blog. I suppose it is because I got nofollow tag removed so now I have problems with some users (IPs) posting spam comments.

I need to stop them so I decided to block some IP’s.

It as easy as that to block IP from posting comments in wordpress blog:

  • Login to Administration panel of WordPress blog
  • choose Settings tab
  • choose Discussion tab
  • in the “Comment Blacklist” list type IP’s you want to block (each line one IP)
  • Click Save changes

In firefox it looks like this:

    Great advice, I feel like I have another job hitting the spam button in my blog everyday. The only problem is these automated bums come from several ip’s.

    Try Mollom, it’ll automatically kill or fall back to captcha up to 100 spam submittions per day for free. Another option is blogspam plugin for wordpress.
