    MOD checks new registrations and comments on the forum using a series of tests to detect spambots - blacklisted IP, EMAIL address, the presence of JavaScript, form submitting time, etc.

    We have developed antispam for WordPress that would provide maximum protection from spam bots and you can provide for your visitors a simple and convenient form of comments/registrations without annoying CAPTCHAs and puzzles. Used to detect spam multistage test that allows us to block up to 100% of spam bots.

    The anti spam method offered by CleanTalk allows to switch from the methods that trouble the communication (CAPTCHA, question-answer etc.) to a more convenient one.

    How does it work?
    • A visitor writes a comment or registers.
    • CleanTalk plugin sends action parameters into the CleanTalk cloud.
    • Service analyzes the parameters.
    • If this is a visitor, the comment will be published. If it's spam bot, then CleanTalk blocks this comment or registering.
    • Parameters are written to the log which can be viewed in the Control Panel service.
    Spam attacks log
    Service CleanTalk (this MOD is a client application for CleanTalk anti-spam service) records all filtered comments, registration and other spam attacks in the "Log of spam attacks" and stores the data in the log for up to 45 days. Using the log, you can ensure reliable protection of your website from spam and no false/positive filtering.

    Add-on have a lot of advantages, low cost, the test period for checks, great XenForo implementation, easy instalation and it haven't conflicts with other mods. It facilitates the work of the forum moderators and your forum can work peacefully

    An effective, low-cost add-on with great XenForo implementation. Didn’t test the older versions, but it seems most of the past complaints about this plugin have been addressed. Very easy to install and deploy. While it has let some spam user registrations through, it thus far has been blocking their posts. Quite happy with it, and I can sleep more soundly now (literally). This is an anti-spam solution that I would love to see integrated into XenForo mainline - it just works™.

    I have to agree with the others here. Every single time I try to upgrade this plugin it bugs out on me and now doesn't seem to work at all. Also, it missed several spam registrations. A shame, as I'm paid up till like 2017. :(

    I have retracted my 5 star review because they have totally screwed this add-on and/or service up. Like the other guy said it's no longer blocking anything. This mod use to work great on my old SMF board and with version 1.3 with XenForo, but they have screwed something up to where if I go back to version 1.3 now it no loner works anymore either.

    Unfortunately this service did not block any of the spam registrations I was getting on my website. Also, there's virtually no advanced options in their 'dashboard' just a list of accounts that successfully registered for my website (that were spam). No whitelisting/blacklisting, block by country, or anything else you're really come to expect from an anti-spam service.

    I've had my own issues with cloudflare, but you'd be better off with their free service (which has the options mentioned above) than paying for this service that doesn't really seem to work.
