How to setup the antispam plugin?
Please look at setup manual http://cleantalk.org/install/joomla15
The plugin is a client application for cloud anti-spam CleanTalk.org, which are daily protects 5k web-sites from spam bots.
I have had several other anti "whatever" installed, and they have been doing a good job for years.
However, in recent months I have noticed a growing number of Registrations on my site, that is often from gmail, hotmail etc, with a long name at the start.
The other installed stuff didn't stop all of these, even the Captcha wasn't stopping it all.
However, installed this CleanTalk, and it stops everything! Good clean work, straight out of the box installation.
I purchased the PRO version shortly after, as it is cheap, and went on to doing the same for a few other sites.
