Site Security

JJAntispam helps you prevent spam registration on your Joomla website by checking the spammer's signature against the Botscout spammer database. If the user that tries to register gets a positive hit, he is denied registration.

  • Get this

In version 1.3 if you block users you are automatically reporting them to SpamBusted. This way their IP will never bother you again.

In version 1.4 you can add an extra layer of security by checking against Botscout as well. Since version 1.4 uses Joomla transport layer for server-to-server communication, Joomla 2.5 is most recommended.

lIn version 1.9 the plugin only check against Botscout, as Spambusted is no longer available. Also, upon blocking a user the plugin verifies that user against Botscout and lets you know if it's a spammer. Optionally, it allows you to directly delete that user if so.

Seems to work perfectly

I have always had issues with my sites picking up garbage users during live development. Since installing this plugin, there have been ZERO bogus attempts. This plugin seems to do the job without killing the server. The only catch/issue I have is that the interface is incomplete. There are entries that look like below and the tool tips/help bubbles contain the same useless information.




Had this plugin been checked and these issues rectified, this plugin would have had a perfect rating.

It's very good but...

The plugin is out of the box and does the work; however, you have to get an API from Boustscout DB, and they allow only 300 queries daily, and you can't enter a subdomain, in my case I have six subdomains and if I share that 300 queries is no enought, I have sites with high traffic. So, you have to know this limitation.

I tried every one of the spam protection extensions listed here that were non-commercial. This was the only one that actually worked......Have not had a single registration attempt that was not legitimate. Thanks for the great work.

My Prayers Answered!

I was just thinking about how to write a plugin that could stop bots registering on my site, and how to list all the emails and IP's that were driving me nuts. Then I found JJantispam. Installed in seconds. Using botscout to track all the emails and IP's. Not one spam registration since! I love it when things just work. Kudos to joomlajingle!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review. This was the hope, to help block spam on Joomla sites, without effort for the end user. I am glad you find it helpful.

Incredible results

Even with Captcha solutions activated, I still got a lot of spamon my website. Since I installed this plugin, nothing passes trough anymore! It would be nice to include Honeypot though..

It is very useful and easy to use! I recommend it!

I like that there is a spam database you can report the ip address to.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind review. More improvements will come soon, including BotScout filtering and/or Project Honeypot.
