What’s New in Version 2.0

Special thanks to everyone who helps us test WP-SpamFree behind the scenes! You all contribute to making it a better plugin for everyone. If anyone wants to participate in future beta tests, or be a regular tester (you get a specially modified version of the plugin), contact us through the WP-SpamFree Support Page or on Twitter @WPSpamFree via @ or DM.

The next big task on our list is localization, so the plugin will be more accessible to users in every language.

We’ll also be sure to add more options for the widget in future releases.

Keep your eyes out for updates, and keep those suggestions coming! Thank you all for your support, and continue to enjoy blogging without spam. :)

    Good work, Scott!

    Been using this plug-in in the past and very satisfied with it blocking my spam comments :)
    Always glad to see a newer and better version release

    Great plugin Scott. I love how simple the plugin works without all the captchas and nonsense of other plugins.

    I switched to WP-SpamFree after Spam Karma stopped being developed, and it’s a breath of fresh air. I’ve not had a spam slip through since!

    Keep up the high quality, and thanks again! :)

    @Russ: Thanks for the feedback! Yes, CAPTCHA’s tend to frustrate people (including me) and create an unnecessary usability problem. You’re welcome! :)

    Scott, I’m contemplating using your plugin. Is there any preferences on contact form plugins or any I should avoid due to known issues. Thanks.

    @Pablo: You’re welcome! Glad we could help remove the spam from your blog. :)

    @Al: There aren’t any other contact form plugins that I know of that have conflicts with it. However, other contact forms don’t use the WP-SpamFree engine to stop spam, so if you want a spam-proof contact form, you may consider using the one built-in with the plugin. Please see the plugin’s documentation for more info.
