Flip It On Spammers! Be The Aggressor

The Lowdown:

Looking for a way to block comment spam this may be a great tool and very easy to use. Simply install then choose the countries or continents that you want to completely block from being able to submit comments. One thing it does nicely is place a timer on the submit button that counts down before anyone can submit a comment. with the default at 15sec by the time a real person reads down the page and has written a comment the timer has elapsed.

Stop Media Comment Spamming

The Lowdown:

This one is pretty straight forward simply install and activate an the ability for anyone to comment on the media attachment is removed while not impacting the rest of your website. This is a great way to remove one avenue from the spammers completely which will have almost no impact on your real visitors.

PDF Embedder

Upload PDFs and embed them straight into your site – just like adding images! PDFs will be automatically sized to their natural size and shape (or just fill the width available if they are too big). Optionally, you can specify a width and the correct height will be calculated automatically. The shape will be recalculated if the page is resized by the user.
