People can make comments with out one login in or two captcha security or something else.

How do you guys tackle this?

Is there a way for people to login so they can make comments or people can make a comment and then a verification

You can add MathSpamProtection::setEnabled(); to your _config.php file which adds a basic math question to the form for users to answer.

If you take a look at the modules, there is a recaptcha spam verification one as well as another one (though the name escapes me). I believe they're in the daily build list.

Can do a search of the forum as well.

You can also enable moderation of all comments, so you have to approve them before they go live, with

PageComment::enableModeration();

Which you could use if someone isn't logged in, by using:

if(!Member::CurrentMember()) PageComment::enableModeration();

which would only enable moderation if someone isn't logged in.

Added the MathSpamProtection::setEnabled(); great!

I also tried adding:

PageComment::enableModeration();

Which you could use if someone isn't logged in, by using:

if(!Member::CurrentMember()) PageComment::enableModeration();

which would only enable moderation if someone isn't logged in.


But it broke my site (500)

Add what exactly? The math spam protection? Yes, in your mysite config file. Generally always put stuff in there.

Thank you, I am running 2.2.2 - am I supposed to see something, or do something?
I am trying to get this to work on the contact page when people fill in the contact form - does it work there?
