I’m extremely pleased to be able to announce version 1.3 of Squelch Unspam, the fantastic anti-spam plugin from Squelch Design.
The plugin is installed as standard on all sites that we build. It is designed to drastically reduce spam commenting on your website by making it much harder for spambots to use auto-submission techniques. Since it does not rely on adding CAPTCHAs or human tests to your comment forms your website visitors won’t even know it’s there.
Version 1.3 fixes a bug that was allowing some spam to get through, and introduces a bunch of new filters to make submitting spam even harder. It also adds two new external dependencies which are targeted at human spammers to make their lives more difficult too. This should help to further reduce the spam burden on your website.
Internal tests and field tests show version 1.3 is the best version of Unspam yet. We’re excited and we hope you will be too. If you’ve not already installed Squelch Unspam then do so now! It’s 100% free, there’s no configuration to worry about, and it shouldn’t affect your website visitors’ experience. It even protects your WooCommerce reviews from spam!
