Limiting comment period on blog because of spam, spam, and more spam.

imageHave you been seeing a large increase in the amount of spam comments on your blog?

I sure have…, and I’ve taken temporary action to limit it.

imageI went to the discussion link under Settings on the WordPress dashboard.

Once there, I enabled the  option  to automatically close comments and, for now, I’m setting the time period to 4 days.  After a post has been up for 4 days, comment will be closed.


I had had this option set for a long time to limit the amount of spam, but, for some reason, a few weeks back, I had disabled it.

Hopefully, this surge of spam will fall to more normal levels and I will reset the period that comments are open to a somewhat longer duration.
