Maspik – Spam Blacklist

Description

Maspik uses a highly efficient “blacklist” method that surpasses traditional CAPTCHA services like Google’s in both efficiency and accuracy, with a success rate of over 95%.

Maspik gives you the power to define what is considered spam by either adding phrases to your blacklist or using the list provided in the MASPIK API (PRO). With fast and precise blocking of spam submissions, setup takes as little as 2 minutes.

How it works:

Maspik allows you to specify words, email addresses, phone formats, IP addresses and more. If they contain links, originate from certain countries or are in specified languages, Maspik flags them as spam and keeps them out of your inbox.

Say goodbye to annoying spam – with Maspik you’ll make unwanted messages a rarity and spam a thing of the past!

Main Features:

  • Blacklisting by field type:
  • – Text fields (often used as Name/Subject)
  • – Email fields (supports regex/ wildcard pattern)
  • – Text area fields
  • – phone number verification with regex/wildcard format
  • Controlling the maximum number of characters in Text fields
  • Controlling the maximum number of characters in Text Area fields
  • Limit the number of links allowed in the text area (ideally 1)
  • Block specific IP addresses
  • Block spam submissions in WordPress comments and subscription forms
  • Access the spam log to review blocked submissions
  • Block Elementor form submissions without source URLs
  • Integration with Proxycheck.io API
  • Integration with AbuseIPDB.com API

Supported forms:

Maspik integrates seamlessly with a wide range of popular contact forms, ensuring compatibility across different site settings:

  • Elementor forms
  • Contact form 7
  • Formidable forms
  • Forminator forms
  • Fluentforms
  • Bricksbuilder forms

  • Gravityforms (Maspik Pro license required)
  • WordPress comments
  • WordPress registration form

Pro Version Features:

The Pro version of the Maspik plugin offers advanced functionality:

  • Integration with the Maspik Spam API
  • Create your own SPAM API on the WpMaspik web site and use it in all of your web sites.
  • Support for Gravity Forms, WPForms, WooCommerce registration and WooCommerce reviews.
  • Import/Export Settings.
  • Blocking based on the presence or absence of characters from specific languages (e.g. block submissions if Russian/Chinese/Arabic/English… are found in the content).
  • Blocking or allowing submissions from specific countries only (e.g. block submissions if the country of origin is USA/China/Russia…).

Note: Be careful when selecting words to blacklist as each website has different needs. For example, if you’re a digital marketing agency and blacklist the word “SEO,” you may lose some valid leads.

Where do I set this up?

In the WordPress dashboard menu, look for the ‘Maspik spam” item and click on it.

Will MASPIK slow down my site?

No.
I developed this plugin using high-quality server-side code and avoided using CSS/JS to ensure optimal website performance as CSS/JS running in the front-end can slow down websites.

How can I report security bugs?

I have tested this and paid for membership, it works great so far and highly needed in this community. The private API is amazing. Great job. I have 3 questions:How do I upgrade my license to a bigger license?Will you consider adding "Validation error message" to private API?Will you consider adding "Limit Text area field to X characters" to the private API?

Nothing is working. The lenght of the message. The number of links (I chose 1 link). The forbidden words. Nothing.I put time and effort to try to make this extension work on my site but it never worked.

Does Not show Support for Quform Also, You have the ability to limit characters in Text Field But.... NO option for Limit text AREA field to X characters. Surely this is not a hard thing to code if you already have that ability in the text field.

I've been using the free version of this plugin for over a year and it is brilliant. I find it very easy to control what I want to block, and it has blocked masses of spam. I've now made the decision to pay to get the Pro version.
