CMSimple is a simple content management system; for the smart maintenance of small commercial or private sites.

CMSimple's guestbook is a victim of spam. One of the CMSimple users described how to stop it.


Hi! I think I have an easy solution for the spam problem with the guestbook. I used it with my Forums and it works fine. I used it with my older version 2.5. Didn't find the Guestbook in the actual 2.8, but you'd be able to add this confirmation also to the mail formular in 2.8 and anywhere else. But here is the description for older Versions:

1. Go to and download the Advanced Textual Confirmation

2. Upload the Files (bbantispam.php and bbas_config.php) to the /cmsimple/ directory

3. Open the cms.php and replace

if($action=='save'){include_once 'bbantispam.php';if($guestbook=='')

It is recommended to change the questions in the bbas_config.php file.
