Where is the "words" subdirectory?

When I try to config Comment Spam Pack, I get a message that says "The anti-spam word list does not exist. Make sure the "words" sub-directory is writable, then re-activate the plugin."

Where exactly is the "words" sub-directory? I searched around using FileZilla and can't find it.

Also, why does this plugin have 3 different names? Comment Spam Pack, Peter's Custom Anti-Spam and Custom Anti-Spam. It makes it confusing to know what exactly I am working with here. The name should be consistent throughout.

    Have you following the following from the instructions?:

    To edit the captcha words:
    1. Open custom_anti_spam.php
    2. Scroll to line 40
    3. Edit / add words as appropriate

    Sorry about the confusing name - this plugin has quite the legacy which is being reflected in the naming. I'll ask the developer if he'll consider changing that.

    Hi y3kgeek,

    I think the line from the installation page that Phil mentioned ought to cover that for ya and we've notified the developer regarding considering those name changes for clarity.

    If you have any further questions on this, just let us know. :slight_smile:
