    Hi boys and girls

    The question is opposite - how to protect the wp blog?

    The biggest problem for blogs when they grow larger is fighting spam.

    mostly I am using 4 musketeers:
    1) aksimet (of course)
    2) wp-ban (ban users by IP - full IP, or IP Range) + in one case I have banned whole Africa just to get rid of scamers :)
    3) Antispam for all fields (great for checking are there spam words in the sites that are published by the user)
    4) User Spam Remover -> to automatically delete all unused user accounts

    there are only 1 more I need:
    -)> a plugin that will make user wait, for example, 10 minutes to publish 2nd post - something called: time delay between posts/comments.

    please share the knowledge
    :peep:

    I don't know of a plugin that does this but you could adjust the built in comment flood delay. You can find it on line 1297 in wp-includes/comment.php and it looks like this:
    Code:
    if ( ($time_newcomment - $time_lastcomment) < 15 )
    That makes sure it has been at least 15 seconds since the last comment from the same IP/email. Change 15 to whatever you like.

    but in my case - I need to set time gap for users that post new content (for my classifieds).

    anybody else?

    Today I wanted to give a free WP plugin away... but I'm new here, and it seems like I can't even post a freaking link to my Youtube demo.

    I could code your thing for $8. My only condition for doing it for $8 is that I get to release it for free to other people. (on my blog and the WP plugin directory)

    If you're interested in getting it coded, PM me and we'll go over the specs. I'll even have a little notification for the user saying, 'You must wait another X Minutes to post another Classified.'
