Core Spam Control Thoughts
We'll implement it in the core, probably in a spam helper that will act as an abstraction layer for different spam checking services/libraries.
We're looking at Akismet. Can anyone recommend other libraries/services that we should take a look at?
Also, it would be cool to have this as a function callable from blocks to provide spam protection for third-party stuff :)
used it (when i ran on WP) and it doesn't like code...
plus its made by the company that makes Wordpress :P
also if you make +$500 a month on your site you have to buy a commercial license
+1 for typepad
That being said, Yeah I'm still a cheap-o looking at $600/yr for spam protection on concrete5.org so a flexible layer that can work with different solutions here would be nice.
What I would really like is an Akismet plug-in, but this post made me think that something might be added to the core. is that true?
My personal site uses forms created through the C5 form block. How will this work if I use an HTML block with raw form code from a third party? We use a marketing automation service that supplies form code. Will this Akismet add-on work with that scenario? Will the add-on know I have the form on my site if I didn't create it through C5?
"We currently use forms created in LoopFuse. Will Akismet work with these forms? I have a plug-in for our CMS that accepts the API key, I just don't know what happens after Submit, where everything goes, and what will happen when we implement Akismet."
His response was this question:
Do you have an answer to this question? I'm not a developer so I don't know how to respond.
