A good friend of mine passed away recently and it was a simple decision to build a memorial website in his honour. The plan is well under way with submissions coming in. This is a different setting from most of the websites I build as we’re actively looking for user content/submissions. That means that the potential for spam is huge.
One approach is to use a commercial spam filter such as Askimet but simpler preventative methods such as Captcha are available. Having a good firewall is also essential, together with regular backups – even websites should be backed up!
The website is www.andyadams.org.uk
