We're glad to announce that we've just updated our Wordpress plugin. It now stands at version 1.1.2. Many of the features you requested have been added... but keep 'em coming!
You can download the lastest version of the plugin at Wordpress Extend or from the Defensio website.
Here's some of the new stuff:
Unprocessed comment notification
In the event that your Wordpress instance cannot connect to Defensio, comments are stored in the moderation queue. We've just added the possibility to resubmit those comments to Defensio with the click of a button. Easy and convenient.
Spread the Defensio love and tell the world how many spam you didn't see by adding the Defensio Counter to your blog. It's available as a "Wordpress Widget" for simplicity, or as a "PHP statement" for themes not supporting widgets. Our plugin ships with 2 default colors: dark grey and light grey (hey! we like grey!), but we've made it super easy for you to create your own fancy custom counter.
Quarantine status in Dashboard
Defensio now has its very own section in the Dashboard's activity box. The number of new spam is just a glance away.
Architecture changes (important!)
Our plugin is now hosted on Wordpress Extend. Its official name has been changed to defensio-anti-spam, which means that it should now reside in /wp-content/plugins/defensio-anti-spam instead of /wp-content/plugins/defensio. When updating, do not forget to delete the old directory: not doing so will lead to version conflicts.
If you have a recent version of Wordpress, you should be notified about plugin updates in the Plugins tab of your control panel. That makes it super easy to always stay up-to-date.
