BotCheck for WordPress 1.5

Edit:
I have had problems with BotCheck preventing trackbacks. I have deactivated it and try another plugin. More on that issue here!

You find an update on this issue here:
BotCheck 1.1 fixed

BotCheck

I am using BotCheck to prevent comment spam. This works fine in WordPress 1.5. I had to do some small changes to get BotCheck Version 1.0 work in 1.5

You have to change the comments.php-file in your current theme directory. My comments.php look like this:
comments.php

So, it works and I am happy, but BotCheck is now upgraded to version 1.1. So, I tried to upgrade, but got an error:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_ELSE in
…../wp-content/themes/wwweiriksocom/comments.php on line 98

Somebody at some point said “if it works, don’t fix it”, so I am back to version 1.0 with the fix in my comments.php mentioned here.

I will check back to www.blueeye.us to see if someone replies to my comment. I have probably done something very stupid, and the fix is probably very easy…

  1. Hei Eirik. SÃ¥ du var inne pÃ¥ siden min og tipset meg om botCheck. Dette er en meget nyttig liten sak som jeg kommer til Ã¥ bruke pÃ¥ mine sider ogsÃ¥ med tid og stunder. Takker og bukker. For tiden forsøker jeg Ã¥ sette meg inni i de ulike funksjonene i css stylen og da blir det mye ekperimentering med ulike design. Begynner Ã¥ fÃ¥ oversikten nÃ¥, sÃ¥ snart ender jeg vel opp med et design jeg er fornøyd med. Ellers er jeg innom sidene dine av og til ogsÃ¥ og finner mye interessant. NB! har laget en hjem link i horisontalmenyen min. SÃ¥ nÃ¥ kommer du lett frem til forsiden. 🙂

  2. […] 1. You want to stop possibilities of any comment spam There are several ways to do this. I like a plug in called Bot Check. It makes a authentification image with a random number that the person posting a comment needs to enter. This far, I have not had any comment spam as long as Bot Check has been running. You find a Guide to BotCheck here. […]
