Plugin validatetrackback

From LifeType Wiki


Name: Validate Trackback

Download link: http://sourceforge.net/projects/lifetype/files/

License: GPL

Author: Paul Westbrook

Description

This plugin offers validation of trackbacks to prevent spam trackback.

When this plugin is installed, and a trackback is received, the plugin downloads the contents of the html pointed at by the url in the trackback, and looks for a trackback url. If it isn't able to download the html or is not able to find a trackback url, the trackback is deleted.

This catches most cases of spam trackback, where a spammer includes an url for a non-blog html page.

Configuration

The plugin configuration page can be found under Control Center->Anti Spam Management.

Enable your Validate Trackback plugin in your pLog control center. That's all.
