WordPress is a popular blog software. To attach Advanced Textual Confirmation to WordPress, do the following:

1. Download Advanced Textual Confirmation.
2. Unpack the files "bbantispam.php" and "bbas_config.php".
3. Upload the files on the server, into the WordPress installation directory.
4. Open the file "wp-config.php" (located in the WordPress installation directory) in a text editor.
5. After the first string, "<?php", add the string
if (FALSE === strpos($_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME'], 'wp-admin')) {
  require_once(dirname(__FILE__) . '/bbantispam.php');

6. Save the changes.

Unfortunately, due to ATC protection, you'll never get trackbacks anymore. But for many blogs it's not a big loss.
