ZP Honey Trap

This free ClassicPress and WordPress plugin invisibly reduces comment spam.

It does this by adding a hidden field in the comment form, which humans won’t see. Bots will see and fill it, triggering the trap.

The name used for the hidden field can be changed, so that if the bots wise up and your spam increases, you can just switch the name used at any time.

This is a dual-platform (ClassicPress and WordPress) rebuild of our retired WordPress plugin ZigTrap.

The download link on the right is a direct link to the zip of the current release. To install the plugin, download this zip then go to the admin plugins page, click the ‘Add New’ button, then click the ‘Upload Plugin’ button and upload the zip file.

Though this plugin is not in the WordPress plugin repository, future updates will be shown on the admin plugins page when available. The plugin must be active in order to check for updates.
