My b2evolution Version: 4.1.x

Getting pretty tired of cleaning up spam every day...

I have read just about every post in the forum about spam and many are quite old...

I am running the current version, have edited some things in .htaccess, have re-captcha and updated the blacklist file every day.

Is there other things i can do?

You are probably getting human-submitted spam. Do you have "Comment URL" setting disabled on Blog setting > Features > Comments?

Also, are you using the latest re-captcha plugin?

I don't see that setting specifically

Anonymous URLs:
Allow anonymous commenters to submit an URL

Is this what you are referring to? I have it un-checked.

It looks like i am using Ver1.1 of the plugin.
When i poke around the plug-in site of B2evo I don't see where to go if there is a newer one. Can you point me in the right direction?
