Comment throttle options on Settings > Network settings page

Are your users frustrated because they are publishing comments to a blog from the same location and they’re losing comments because the comments are published too soon after each other?

Would you like to get rid of that pesky ‘You are posting comments too quickly. Slow down.’ message?

Well stop stressing and download our awesome and yet extremely simple Comment control plugin!

Commenting too quickly message

It’s simple!

Once installed it adds a new Comment section in Settings > Network settings which enables you to fine tune comment throttling to:

  • Whitelist IP address so that the time limit between consecutive comments isn’t applied to logged out users from that IP address
  • Blacklist IP addresses if you want to prevent comments from a specific IP address

And best of all comment throttling is automatically applied to logged out users only and not logged in users.
