Hi one of my blog posts just got spammed with 25 comments about ephedrine and pornography. I thought it was meant to pick up such comments automatically, it obviously didn't - so is there something I need to do to make it moderate comments? If it is already trying to catch these kind of comments (and it just didn't pick these particular ones up) is there any way that I force all comments to need to be manually moderated (I have to login and approve them manually) before they are published.

TIA

Matt.

To enable the maths spam question (like the one on the SilverStripe blog), add

MathSpamProtection::setEnabled();


to mysite/_config.php

To enable moderation of all posts, add

PageComment::enableModeration();


to mysite/_config.php

Thankyou so much.

Site goes public on Saturday - we are getting jitters already.

Word has leaked and we are getting 100s of (unique) users a day and we haven't advertised the address yet or anything (just word of mouth traffic as 90% of our hits are direct address typing in)!
