Maspik – Spam Blacklist

Descripcion

Maspik is an anti-spam plugin that blocks spam submissions through your Elementor, CF7, and WordPress contact forms, comments, and registration pages. With Maspik, you can blacklist specific words, IPs, countries, and languages to prevent spam emails from being delivered to your inbox.

If you’re receiving spam emails, take a look at the common words or phrases they contain, such as « Eric Jones, » « SEO Ranking, » « Automatically submit your website, » or « Get free. » Maspik can block these and other spam words that ReCaptcha may miss.

Features:

  • Supports Elementor forms and CF7 (with more supported forms available in the Pro version)
  • Blocks spam submissions in WordPress comments and registration forms
  • Allows you to blacklist words in a text field, email field (regex accepted), or textarea field
  • Enables you to blacklist specific IPs or countries, or only allow submissions from a specific country
  • Blocks text fields with more than X characters, or the textarea field if it contains more than X links
  • Blocks or allows the email field if it contains (or doesn’t contain) one character from the main site language
  • Enables you to add custom phone validation with your regex format
  • Includes a spam log that you can clear at any time
  • Blocks Elementor forms devoid of source URLs
  • Connects to Proxycheck.io API and AbuseIPDB.com API

If a bot or spammer fills out your form with any of the above, the form will not be sent, and they will receive a validation error.

Pro Version Features:

  • Connects your site to a private spam API
  • Connects your site to a public spam API
  • Supports Gravityforms, Wpforms, Woocommerce registration, and Woocommerce reviews

API Site: WpMaspik.com

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.

Let’s spread love! ❤️

FAQ

Does the plugin work with other contact form plugins besides Elementor and CF7?

Maspik supports Elementor and Contact Form 7, and it supports Gravityforms and Wpforms in the Pro version. We plan on supporting more forms in the future.

Where do I set this up?

In the WordPress dashboard menu, look for the ‘Anti 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?

You can report security bugs through the Patchstack Vulnerability Disclosure Program. The Patchstack team help validate, triage and handle any security vulnerabilities. Report a security vulnerability.

This plugin saved me so much time. Our Elementor contact form was getting spammed and I was able to target the spammer by their IP, Location, and many other options that this plugin allows. Even after blocking the entire country that was spamming our form, the form still works perfectly for non-spam! 10/10 would recommend it!

This is really a huge solution, Thanks so much I would suggest to add a feature, to be able to export the spam log to excel sheet.

I hope they keep this plugin growing. It is defiantly worth the small payment, and it works very well. I have been using it for several months and I love it and my clients love having less spam.
