I'm extremely pleased to announce the successor to the Email Whitelister and Blacklister plugins today, Comment Email Filter. This new plugin rolls its predecessors into one and introduces several oft-requested features including:
- Give each email address its own score
- Only accept comments with trusted email addresses
- Easily trust/ban comments from the comment listing and comment editing screens.
- A conditional template tag that will evaluate as true if the comment has a trusted email address
If you use Movable Type Enterprise, you will also see a new tab on the Commenters screen called Email Filter which will show a new (and hopefully easier to use) interface for listing and adding trusted/banned email addresses.
Comment Email Filter is free for personal users. Commercial and Movable Type Enterprise users can download a fully function 30 day evaluation copy after which you will need to purchase the appropriate license.
