Ticket #31990 Public [Closed]

Spam from events


My client has emailed me to say they’ve been getting an unusually large amount of spam, all originating from the events on their website.

Theyre all added as ‘comments’ which is strange because the events dont have a comments section for people to use!

anything i can do to stop this?

      This sounds more of an issue on your website. Disable commenting completely on your site and look into other 3rd party spam filtering plugins like https://wordpress.org/plugins/stop-spam-comments/
