    Hi!

    We get a lot of Emails from our Webzine Theme Page (no contact, only Spam). How we can fix this problem? If we post a new article, we get an email and from spam bots too.

    Thanks

    Did you set the Verification Question/answer ? Could you paste your website url?

    The verification Question/answer(http://d.pr/i/TK5d) doesn’t work? I want to know if that the verification can stop the spam mail.

    I think we get spam from the wordpress theme and not from the contact form – like invisible comments on the page or other thinks? Can you post me a few configurations for wordpress for “anti spam” like no comments allowed (not only invisible) and other?

    Thanks very much!

    From the content format of mail you pasted, they should be from the contact form.

    Please change the verification question/answer in theme option(webzine/footer http://d.pr/i/khJI ).

    For comment spam, you can try to install some anti-spam comment wp plugin

    Hey, I’m having the same problem. In the footer options, I only have a check box for “Enable Random Verify Number” and this doesn’t seem to work.

    Hi,

    I upgraded the captcha code, please follow:

    1) backup your data and theme folder (../wp-content/themes/webzine/)
    2) download and unzip the file
    3) replace the footer.php and functions.php to ../wp-content/themes/webzine/ folder
    4) put the class-ux-captcha.php and gentium folder to ../wp-content/themes/webzine/functions/ folder

    Hi,

    I changed a new way, please follow:

    1) Install Akismet plugin, go to Settings/Akismet and insert a api follow it’s tips (it’s free)
    2) download and unzip the file
    3) change as your api and url in the footer.php: line304-307 and line119-121
    4) replace the footer.php and functions.php to ../wp-content/themes/webzine/ folder
    5) put the class.microakismet.inc.php and func.microakismet.inc.php to ../wp-content/themes/webzine/functions/ folder

    Hi,lena
    You could remove the class-ux-captcha.php and gentium folder now.
