Hỏi đáp

What should I expect?

See: Breaking Down Stop Spammers.

What do I do if I lock myself out of my own site?


Can I use Stop Spammers with Cloudflare?

Yes. But, you may need to restore visitor IPs:

Can I use Stop Spammers with WooCommerce (and other ecommerce plugins)?

Yes. But, in some configurations, you may need to go to Stop Spammers > Protection Options > Toggle on the option for “Only Use the Plugin for Standard WordPress Forms” > Save if you’re running into any issues. Premium now supports WooCommerce checks.

Can I use Stop Spammers with Akismet?

Yes. Stop Spammers can even check Akismet for an extra layer of protection.

Can I use Stop Spammers with Jetpack?

Yes and no. You can use all Jetpack features except for Jetpack Protect, as it conflicts with Stop Spammers.

Can I use Stop Spammers with Wordfence (and other spam and security plugins)?

Yes. The two can compliment each other. However, if you have only a small amount of hosting resources (mainly memory) or aren’t even allowing registration on your website, using both might be overkill.

Why is 2FA failing?

Toggle off the “Check Credentials on All Login Attempts” option and try again.

Is Stop Spammers GDPR-compliant?

Yes. See: Stop Spammers does not collect any data for any other purpose (like marketing or tracking). It is purely for legitimate security purposes only. Additionally, if any of your users ever requested it, all data can be deleted.

Canning a response to contact you externally is no way to keep a plugin alive. Hopefully more people realize this.

It is a very good plugin that stops spam very well.

My website gets pounded a lot by SPAM in my forms and attempted logins, and Stop Spammers has worked perfectly for the last year. For instance, from my Dashboard, “Stop Spammers has prevented 93423 spammers from registering or leaving comments.” I’d say this plugin is AWESOME!

I do find it funny that a plugin which advertises to "Hide admin notices" advertises on your WP Admin asking for money/donations. Takes up around 245PX of the Dashboard until cleared too!

I have this installed on several sites and have had various issues with it. it seems to block a lot of legit form submissions. When it does block a form submission, I often get the message saying it was blocked but still get the form submission as well. No way to actually accept the form submission that was blocked... just to add the person's IP address to an allow list or block them. This is only useful for blocking spammers, but completely pointless for dealing with false positive as if you didn't get the submission, that person isn't going to come back and re-submit the form.
