What are the Human Comment SPAM Protection Filter options?
The Human Comment SPAM Protection Filter uses a 3rd party SPAM dictionary to detect human-based comment SPAM.
This tool, unlike other SPAM tools such as Akismet, will not send your comment data to 3rd party services for analysis.
Human SPAM options explanations
Option: Human SPAM Filter
This option scans the content of WordPress comments for keywords that are indicative of SPAM and marks the comment according to your preferred setting below.
Option: Default SPAM Action
When a comment is detected as being SPAM from a human commenter, the comment will be categorised based on the setting.
This option allows you to decide how to categorise comments when identified to be SPAM.
Select one of the 4 options from the drop-down list:
- Mark as pending moderation
This doesn't mark the comment as spam, but instead marks it as "pending" and you will need to approve it. This is not recommended.
- Mark as SPAM
The comment will be immediately moved to the SPAM folder.
- Move to trash
The comment will be immediately moved to the Trash folder.
- Reject and redirect
The comment processing will stop immediately and will not be inserted into the WordPress comments database - the comment submission will be redirected to the website's home page.
