I’ve just uploaded the famous Farms Theme Pack to this blog. And I’ve manually added a few others, too. You can pretty much find what you are looking for. And I’ll manually add any other free theme for you is you ask.
All blogs on the Blog Peoria Project are already protected by the Akismet plugin. You have to do NOTHING. It’s there, working in the background, protecting you.
But I’ve added the CAPTCHA plugin to give us all that extra layer of protection from the spammers that somehow manage to slip through.
All commenters will have to answer a simple math question when they comment on posts and pages, and when they register as members and sign up for blogs. They are other pages (like Buddy Press pages and forums) that you can activate to use CAPTCHA.
I know CAPTCHAs can be a pain, but they are a good way to further eliminate hated spam. Ever have to eliminate 4,000 plug spam comments from a blog? I have. Not much fun.
There is remarkably little you have to do. You can access the controls by going to your left admin sidebar, hover on “BWS Plugins” and then click on “CAPTCHA.”
But it will work just fine if you leave it alone.
WangGuard is a plugin that is already activated across the Blog Peoria Project. It will protect us all from spam blog registrations (called “splogs”), which will slow down our servers and work to fill out inboxes with junk email.
I hate sploggers.
Like I said. It’s already activated on your site. You may have to enter the Blog Peoria Project’s own Wang Guiard API. Here it is:
Let me know if you have any problems.
