    Wordpress is the most popular and free content management system. *We can design beautiful websites with wordpress and add content pages easily without knowing bulk code also.

    After installing wordpress website we will get spam comments excessively. *In order to avoid those comments we can install *many themes. But in my experience I found that 'disable comments' plugin is secured and safe.*
    After installing you just make 'disable comments everywhere'. It is free and secure plugin in my experience.

    If you have any doubts or views on wordpress please share.

    Well, In my case i didn't installed a plugin that will disable comments, since if you are going to make a new post in Wordpress, there is a check box there that can allow you to decide whether you want comments or trackbacks in your site.

    And aside from that you can just disallow people to comment on your post, you can find the setting for that on your Wordpress dashboard.

    But yeah, maybe that plugin would be a great help too..

    I would be more concerned about malware. There are a couple of malware scanner plugins out there that you should consider

    In your case, you have used captcha or it is secure theme.
    Any how we can use this plugin for safety purpose in order to avoid unwanted stuff to our clean and neat simple website.

    The Capcha thing worked for a while but then needed to switch back to "manual check mode".
    None of the plugins worked satisfactory - even the one our coders created for us.

    agreed, recaptcha is the best way to avoid spam from bots, but you won't avoid smm spamming from real persons I believe

    Are you asking to remove already placed spam comments or you want to avoid future spam comment?

    It seems quite complicated to register in this plugin.
    We have tried.

    We use Akismet or Defensio for catching spam comments. Works like a charm. Some clients just want the comments turned off and that's worked fine as well. We've also installed Facebook comments, which gets rid of spam comments because the person has to be logged into their Facebook account to post and it gets linked to their account. Haven't had any issues since using FB comments or the other two plugins or turning off comments.

    I am an interior decorator and have a vista print site. I really like my site! It is very nicely done and I get a lot of views. Better check b/c your info is outdated as Vista print is new and improved. You can also sell item from your site.
