Do you own a WordPress powered website or blog? Do you suffer from spam comments all the time? Have you tried the use of the different plugins and still failed to 100% control them? Would you want to find a way on how you can get rid of those spam comments from your site without any plugin use?
Regardless of whatever your query or need may be but for as long as your main target is to get rid of spam, this post will help you out since its based on real testing and after proving that the guide works. We all hate spam and spammers due to their negative side on any site for example being penalized for linking to bad neighbors and others.
Lets head directly to this option. Please note that if you don’t know how to tweak your WordPress files from the Admin Editor, then you should tamper since you might break up your site in pieces but if you know some simple tweaking, then continue since you can always revert the changes.
1. Log in to your WordPress site using your admin account details.
2. Go to Appearance and then Editor and click there.
3. Select comment.ph file under templates and wait for it to load.
4. Look out for Author URL page.
Save file and reload your page. The output of the above changes will be removing the Website or URL option on the comment form. Trust me, no spammer will want to auto post a spam comment without a URL and since your template will be rejecting all comments with links in the URL field, you will have a cleaner free from spam comment WordPress site.
Its important to always do a back up of your files before making edits like the above.
