Comment Policy

WPBeginner is a serious publication of all things WordPress related. We are a resource site that provides quality tips, and tools that you need to enhance your WordPress experience. One of the ways to improve this collective resource is having interaction within the site through the use of comments. In order to assure quality, we must have a policy to fight against SPAM.

While we appreciate each comment, if your comment does not follow our comment policy, it will be removed. Continuous abuse of the policy will result in permanent ban of the IP address, domain, and the email used.
