Baby's first blog has migrated from WordPress to SlickCMS and had a brief design refresh in the process.
We've not blogged much about Lily over the latter part of 2009, so we're intending on posting many more updates this year, especially now that Mia Leia-Rose is on the way too!
This also marks the last of my WordPress sites. I've either switched them to SlickCMS or turned them off altogether. In the near future I plan to setup a WordPress.com hosted blog, mainly to keep up-to-date with the latest developments and new features. I'll let you know how that goes.
Slickhouse has been live for almost a week now and I'm yet to receive a spam comment. In comparison, each time I logged into the WordPress Admin on v8 of the site, I was greeted with over 200 spam comments to moderate, that Askimet had trapped.
So it seems that OpenCAPTCHA is working as intended and preventing spammers from submitting comments.
When selecting a Captcha provider for SlickCMS, I had several criteria including:
- Easy to implement
- Easy to use
OpenCAPTCHA was the only one I came across that met all my requirements. Although no formal sample code is provided in ASP (SlickCMS' language of choice), the PHP code was easy enough to grasp and develop the same.
So, if you're looking for a spam prevention tool for your next web project, consider OpenCAPTCHA.
