I have a question regarding the „name“ of the comment field of wordpress blogs. I have 2 sites, that are just available locally on my LAN.

On the first site, if I inspect the comment field in firefox, I see:

<textarea id="comment" name="comment" cols="45" rows="8" maxlength="65525" required="required"></textarea>

On the second site I see:

<textarea autocomplete="new-password" id="comment" name="i817ab2c85" cols="45" rows="8" maxlength="65525" required="required" spellcheck="false"></textarea>

Can anybody tell me, why the name of the comment field differs on the second site? Both sites have the same plugins installed and I didn't find an option to adjust the name or give it a random number. So I don't undrestand, why the comments on the second site are internally handled in such a strange way.

It would be nice, if I could adjust the name, to have unique identifiers for the comment field of each site - that's why I'm basically asking.

Greetings

Matse

    It's impossible to say for certain with the information given, but if I had to guess the second site has some kind of security or anti-spam plugin which is attempting to obfuscate the comment forms. Dec 17, 2021 at 11:35
  • Hello, both sites just use AntiSpam Bee: de.wordpress.org/plugins/antispam-bee That's why I'm so surprised. Both sides have nearly no plugins and are nearly identical. Do you know any plugin, that obfuscates the form?

  • I can see code in antispam-bee that does it. Dec 17, 2021 at 11:54

    @JacobPeattie Forget my last answers. You are absolutely right, Antispam Bee was the cause. I didn't install it on the second site. After installing it, I also have there now an obfuscated name. Thanks so much for your help! I should have seen this myself.
