Installation Instructions
  • Als je niet weet hoe je een plugin in WordPress moet installeren, lees je hier hoe.


  • PHP 5.2.4 of hoger
  • WordPress 3.8 of hoger


After you have activated Antispam Bee the plugin will block spam comments out of the box. However, you may want to visit Settings → Antispam Bee to configure your custom set of anti-spam options that works best for your site.

Privacy bericht

On sites operating from within the EU the option Use a public antispam database should not be activated for privacy reasons. When that option has been activated, Antispam Bee will match full IP addresses from comments against a public spam database. Technically it is not possible to encrypt those IPs, because spam databases only store and operate with complete, unencrypted IP addresses.

Werkt Antispam Bee met Jetpack, Disqus Comments en andere reactie plugins?

Antispam Bee works best with default WordPress comments. It is not compatible with Jetpack or Disqus Comments as those plugins load the comment form within an iframe. Thus Antispam Bee can not access the comment form directly.
It also won’t work with any AJAX-powered comment forms.

Does Antispam Bee store any private user data, IP addresses or the like?

Nope. Antispam Bee is developed in Germany and Switzerland. You might have heard we can be a bit nitpicky over here when it comes to privacy.

Will I have to edit any theme templates to get Antispam Bee to work?

No, the plugin works as is. You may want to configure your favorite settings, though.

Werkt Antispam Bee met verkorte IP’s?

Generally yes. However, commissioning the Antispam Bee plugin for canceled or shortened IP addresses in comment metadata is not recommended. Because the name and the e-mail address of the comments are not unique, an IP address is the only reliable measure. The more complete the stored IP addresses, the more reliable the assignment or detection of spam.

How can I submit undetected spam?

If the antispam plugin has passed some spam comments, these comments can be reported for analysis. A Google table was created for this purpose.

Antispam Bee met Varnish?

If WordPress is operated with Apache + Varnish, the actual IP address of the visitors does not appear in WordPress. Accordingly the Antispam-Plugin lacks the base for the correct functionality. An adaptation in the Varnish configuration file /etc/varnish/default.vcl provides a remedy and forwards the original (not from Apache) IP address in the HTTP header X-Forwarded-For:
if (req.restarts == 0) {
set req.http.X-Forwarded-For = client.ip;

Zijn er betaalde diensten of beperkingen?

Nee, Antispam Bee blijft voor altijd gratis, zowel voor privé als commerciële projecten. Je mag het op zoveel sites gebruiken als je wilt. Er is geen limiet verbonden aan de hoeveelheid sites waar je de plugin op mag gebruiken.

Works great!

Works great on every site I have comments enabled.
Nice little feature to see the reason why a comment is flagged as spam!


Ja, endlich ist Ruhe. Auch wenig Kommentarspam nervt. Damit ist dank der emsigen Biene nun Schluss 🙂

Très efficace

Un anti spam qui fonctionne parfaitement, traduit en Français et configurable avec compteur sur le dashboard. je l’utilise depuis plus de 2 ans sans soucis.
