LH Zero Spam


Why should your users prove that they’re humans by filling out captchas? Let bots prove they’re not bots with the LH Zero Spam plugin.

LH Zero Spam blocks registration spam and spam in comments automatically without any config or setup. Zero Spam was initially built based on the work by David Walsh, but enhanced with simpler code base and unobtrusive JavaScript.

Major features in LH Zero Spam include:

  • No captcha, because spam is not users’ problem
  • No moderation queues, because spam is not administrators’ problem
  • Blocks spam registrations & comments with the use of JavaScript


  1. Upload the lh-zero-spam folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


Is JavaScript required for this plugin to work?

Yes, that’s what does the magic and keeps spam bots out.

I keep getting ‘There was a problem processing your comment.’

Be sure JavaScript is enabled and there are no JS errors.

Does this work with multisite?’

Yes it protectas from spam wp-register registrations.

Does this work with Buddypress?’

Yes as of version 1.08 this will protect from Buddypress registrations. Note is requires the bp_before_account_details_fields hook, must reputable themse include this hook.

I was using Akismet but Akismet failed to stop spam, I was getting a lot of spam comments on daily basis. Few month ago, I installed this free plugin and there isn't any spam comment since then. This one is a must have plugin for bloggers.
