"Simple Spam Filter" plugin problem (3 posts)

    I installed the Farms comment spam pack which has the Simple Spam Filter
    plugin. This plugin should n't allow more than 2 links in a comment.

    If I enter
    http://www.google.com
    http://www.yahoo.com
    http://www.msn.com

    It accepts it. When the comment published, its shown as

    http://www.google.com
    http://www.yahoo.com
    http://www.msn.com

    This plug in is checking for http:// in the url before its
    passed to the comment processing. If the plugin gets the comment
    text after its processed (converting the links to http://), then
    it would be more effective.

    Is there any action like post_comment to check the comment text?
    I didn't find one in code.

    WPMU by default already forces moderation on comments with more than 2 links. The plugin you're trying is pretty outdated, should try something like wordpress hashcash.

    I find Simple Spam filter still works pretty well. You may have to edit it directly to tweak it though.
