This plugin uses Javascript to hide the true location of you comments script, making it difficult for spammers to find it in order to bombard you with spam.

It is important to note that if you use this plugin, commenters must be using a Javascript-enabled brower in order to post comments.

I have been testing this plugin on one of my blogs for about 12 hours, and I have received zero spam in that time period on that blog. I will be installing it on all my blogs today.

Installation:

1. Download Now:

DisguiseCommentURL.zip

Membership required, please sign-in or register:

2. Extract and upload MTDisguiseCommentURL.pl to your 'plugins' directory within your 'mt' directory.

3. Open your Individual Entry Archive template and find the following line:

<form method="post" action="<$MTCGIPath$><$MTCommentScript$>" name="comments_form" onsubmit="if (this.bakecookie[0].checked) rememberMe(this)">

Delete <$MTCGIPath$> and <$MTCommentScript$> and replace with a fake comment URL. An example might be http://www.mydomain.com/postcomments.cgi -- but don't use this example! Make up something unique. Remember, the URL should point to a non-existent file.

2. In the same template, after the </form> tag, enter:

<$MTDisguiseCommentURL$>

3. Rebuild your Individual Archives, and you are done. Post a test comment to make sure it works.
