[2 Grey Star Level]

How do I not receive spam in Joomla?
  All my clients are complaining that they are receiving spam, many of them with malicious links.
  This happens only in Site5, use Joomla since version 1.0 was just me migrate to Site5 and all my clients are sick of spam.

  There is no captcha to solve it!

Answer #1


It really depends on where it is coming from – if this is a form in your site, then yes, a captcha will do quite a lot to reduce this. We also provide anti-spam tools within your hosting control panel that you can fine-tune to your needs. I would recommend you contact our support team, either through a chat or a ticket, and we will be happy to investigate the source of your spam issue and help you resolve it.

Myself also faced this situation especially I will get spam mails from the online essay writing services so, to get relieved form your problem The best option is to enable recaptcha, it\’s already a feature of k2 and can easily be turned on.
Select the k2 component in the admin area, then on the right hand side there is the toolbar button for Parameters, click that and in the box that opens under the section for Comments there is the ability to turn recaptcha on and inputs for the public and private keys that are given when you sign up and register your domain on

Hope this helps.
