richardb The recent addition of a time limited trial for the Frontend User Pro is a great addition and one that helps with marketing. Although submissions can be held for review before posting isn't a problem if only a few submissions are made. It is a different matter when the 'free' submissions jump to even a dozen a day. Is there a way to use Frontend User Pro with spam protection?

WPUF-pro supports reCAPTCHA or really captcha to prevent spamming.

Thanks for a fast reply and captcha certainly prevents those spam bots from posting.

How about those self promoters that want to include links to their affiliate sites? Is there a process to prevent links from being included in their post? What would be cool is if there was a way to automatically replace any href’s with one to my own site. If the replacement URL could be customized so much the better.

I think this is what you are looking for –

Actually that is the opposite of what I’d like to do. Short of removing links the idea is to change the href. For example a spammer inserts href=”” into their post. I’d like to automatically change all URLs in the post to href=””.

I’d urge the developers to consider making frontend user pro able to integrate with anti-spam programs like Akisment or Mollom (which are both designed for commenting).

Here is how Mollom defines their WordPress plugin:

Mollom deeply integrates with WordPress’ regular commenting behavior.

1) Spam comments are discarded and not accepted on your site.
2) Ham (not spam) comments are accepted and put into your comment moderation queue (if applicable).
3) If Mollom is unsure, the author is asked to solve a CAPTCHA (word verification). If the CAPTCHA is not solved correctly, the author is presented a new one and asked to try again.

In case someone has the same issue without outbound links in post there is a WP plugin that will get you halfway there: Outbound Link Manager

If you are wanting to replace their posted links, that is possible using the filters available when creating a new post. You could search and replace certain links from the post content. But I wonder how will you search for that kind of links as they can be thousands of variations.

Hi Tareq,

Outbound Link Manager will list all links in post and/or pages.
