Paul Crowe’s tutorial from Spice Up Your Blog will help show you how to automatically hide spam links in your blog comments. It removes any spammy links from future AND past comments, which will prove especially convenient when you’re too busy to sift through your comments one by one (like I do).
There are two ways to do this.
Paul’s first tactic is to use a small piece of CSS that will completely remove links in the comments. This removes the anchor text (link included) while retaining the rest of the comment.
The second technique involves placing a small jQuery code into your blog’s HTML, which will remove the link from the anchor text, but will retain the entire comment.
