298 website development tip–especially for spam comments

A suggestion if you want to make your domain a bit more powerful: check out plugins. In particular, Akismet is a great tool for filtering spam comments (this came up briefly in class yesterday when a student mentioned that he almost deleted my comment automatically assuming it was just more spam), and Jetpack has a bunch of good stuff (additional widgets, tracking statistics, word clouds, gallery features, etc.). Just log in, find “Plugins” in your Dashboard, click “add new,” and search for those.
