> Note, I no longer use Bad Behaviour because of the wonderful Akismet. As a result I have no need to and won't be maintaining this log reader. For a version that works with more recent versions of Bad Behaviour check here: . Also, if you make a new version please leave a comment so others that come here via Google will know, about it thanks.
I've received plenty of comment spam before, but over the past week or so it's been really hitting me. I've been getting upwards of 100 spam comments per day. You won't have noticed any on the site because they were all moderated, but man it was pissing me off to leave the computer for an hour and come back to a dozen or so "please moderate" emails. I tried out a few different plugins to try and solve my woes, but in the end settled on Bad Behaviour. I'm clearly not the only happy customer either, the post I just linked to has over 200 trackbacks.
Bad Behaviour has very successfully stopped the insane amount of comment spam that was overloading my inbox. There is just one MAJOR shortcoming of the WordPress plugin: It doesn't display the logs in WordPress admin. Apparently it's on the to do list, but since a privative log viewer for WordPress admin plugin would take about 10 mins to write, I wrote one.
It doesn't display all the information Bad Behaviour logs, simply because it totally screws up the admin interface and most of it you probably don't need to see anyway. I have chose the things I like to look at, but it is very easy to change. It's very privative and easy to improve on, but I don't have the time. If someone does improve on it, let me know.
Things that would be nice to add:
- View more log info for particular entry
- Delete items from the log
- Probably more stuff as well.
Just plop the unzipped file in your plugins directory, upload and activate. You can then check your log in the Options / BB Log Reader panel in your WordPress admin
I don't really plan to offer any support, because it's so damn simple. If you can install and use Bad Behaviour then you should be able to do the same with the log reader. But please do leave a comment if you're having trouble and I'll see what I can do. Please also leave a comment if you improve it any, I'd like to offer any improvements you make from here as well (or at least link to your site - it's all about sharing after all).
