This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

APS Content Moderator Plugin


The plugin allows you to filter blog comments for obscene, revealing, ambiguous or offensive content using the APS Content Moderator API.
If the User Comment contains any of the above unwanted data, the comment will automatically be set to “not approved”. If none of the content is found, the comment will be released. You can save a lot of time because you don’t have to check every comment manually.
The sensitivity of the filtering can be adjusted.

Good to know

You can try to deactivate the options “Comment must be manually approved” and “Comment author must have a previously approved comment” in “Discussion Settings” and let the Plugin do the job for you.

By default, the plugin limits the comment text length to 1024 characters. Since the Content Moderator API can handle a maximum of 1024 characters per request. The limitation can be switched off in the plugin settings. Then, only the first 1024 chars of the comment will be checked.

Furthermore, all HTML tags are filtered out of the comment.


Please visit the GitHub repository page and open an issue:
