What I Want, MT Plugin Division
Posted on August 13, 2005 Posted by John Scalzi 5 Comments
Having just manually expurged over 1,000 comment spams from the Whatever that accrued just from about 3pm yesterday (you don’t see them because they’re blocked, but they need to be expunged nonetheless), here’s what I really really really want:
A Movable Type plugin that not only moderates comments (like my current plugin, which blocks comments to entries older than a week from appearing unless I approve them), but also removes unapproved comments automatically after a certain set time (for me, a couple of days would work). Then I wouldn’t have to manually remove the comments; I could just laugh at them until they were manually expunged.
Does anyone know of such a magical plugin? And if such a one does not exist, could someone please make it? I would do it myself, but, well. Technical incompetence and all that.
According to the Six Apart website, that’s going to be built in, no plugin required.
MT 3.2 is currently in beta, nearing release.
Not fast enough, apparently. John, you have my sympathies. 1,000 bits of spam … yikes!
Hi nice site Good luck Your hard work paid off
