It’s been over two months since my last post, sorry 😳
Let’s talk about a great Italian plugin for WordPress: Hiddy. Hiddy is a simple and light plugin that adds a field to the comments form: this field has a pseudo-random name (chosen among a set of “interesting” names, like e-mail, url, etc.) and is placed inside a DIV with a random class.
<div class="A10ZHW4BMEY"> <input type="text" name="easyCaptcha" value="" /> </div>
Thanks to a simple CSS rule this field will be hidden to standard visitors but visible to spam-bots that try to fill all the available fields in the comments form.
Final result: if this hidden field is filled up, that comment is just spam and can be safely deleted from the database.
From now on your spam queue will be so empty 😉
