Blogging software?
« on: April 25, 2006, 04:34:08 am »
Lo all,

So far no where i've posted has anyone had any really good suggestions or ideas, so hopefully someone here might!

Basically i've run a blog for the past few years using wordpress, well over time my blog got riddled with spam posts, no fixes I could find would fix the issue(When it comes to php and such, i'm not overly savvy with it). Eventually I turned off comments completely just to save myself the hassle of deleting thousands of comments total on all the posts. I switched to Bblog later, and eventually the same issue occured, spam comments.

So, the question i'm posing is those of you who know anything about php or blogging software, does anyone have any good suggestions so that this can be curbed, or am I just perpetually screwed?

Just go to a site like Greatestjournal.com or something if you just want to write out a journal you it's free and if you really want to you can have it so only you can read it or share it with who ever is bored and browsing blogs randomly.

I'm sure there are other alternatives out there as well there are plenty of choices out there.

Yeah, I know can run it through another site, but personally i've had this domain for a few years and it's hosted for free by a friend that has a hosting company so it's not a huge deal, I enjoy running it through there, just wish there was a fairly simplisitic way to get rid of the damn spam comments.

Yeah, I can disable commenting which i've done in the past, but I like having the ability for people to comment :P That's the catch 22 :P
