Spam Honey Pot


This plugin works by adding a textarea field to the comment form that’s hidden using a CSS style. Since bots don’t
generally detect CSS like this, they proceed to fill out the field like any other field. This implies that they
aren’t a human (or they wouldn’t «see» the field with CSS hiding it) using a browser, in which case the plugin
marks the comment as spam. This seems to catch the vast majority of spam with very few false results and doesn’t
require contacting a third party service like most spam plugins.


  1. Upload spam-honeypot.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Be sure that your theme implements <?php do_action('comment_form'); ?> in comments.php and comments-popup.php
  4. Optionally, go to the plugin’s settings page and change the hidden textarea name and/or specify the submit
    button name; hover your mouse cursor over each of these fields for more details


How can I get a question added to this FAQ?

Just contact me at with your question. I’ll respond with an answer and, if it appears
relevant to the plugin’s userbase, I’ll add it to the FAQ in the next release.

Honey pot method seems simple but it works effectively. Maybe it cannot counter manual SPAM but since most of SPAM are from robot, this plugin tackles it tremendously.
