Manage the WordPress Zero Spam plugin settings

I saw this on a Facebook group and decided to make this tutorial to show how the Bulk Settings Manager extension can help in a real-life situation.

In situations like this one, MainWP Bulk Settings Manager Extension can save you a lot of time. Instead of tweaking the single option in each of your websites separately, you can easily update it right from your MainWP Dashboard on all your site at once.

To do this,

  1. Go to one of your WordPress websites where you have the WPZS plugin installed
  2. Install the MainWP Key Maker Plugin

  1. Go to the WPZS plugin Settings page and tweak settings as per your preferences
  2. Once ready, hit the Save Settings button
  3. After the page reloads, click the MainWP Key Maker button in the top admin bar.

  1. The Key Maker modal screen will show up
  2. Copy the Post-submission Request

Here you can copy the key that I made, it contains all default settings with just support for Gravity Forms enabled:

  1. Now, go to your MainWP Dashboard
  2. If you don’t have the MainWP Bulk Settings Manager Extension installed, you can see here how to do it. If you do have it installed, please proceed to the next step.
  3. Go to the MainWP > Extensions > Bulk Settings Manager > Import Keys page
  4. In the Import from Key Maker section, enter the Key Name, it can be something like WPZS, and paste the previously copied key to the Key Code field
  5. Click the Make Key button

  1. After you are prompted to review the key fields, click the Save Key button
  2. Ok, now the key is ready to be applied to the rest of your sites. Go to the Single Keys tab

  1. Select the key that you just made, select all sites where you want to apply this tweak and click the Save Key button

And that’s it. The extension will loop through your sites now and submit the key to all selected sites in order to apply your preferred WPZS settings.

I hope this helps anyone who stumbles upon any similar situation.

Thanks for sharing this detailed tutorial. Now I finally understand how to use the extension and plugin: MainWP Bulk Settings Manager Extension + MainWP Key Maker Plugin.

Great :slight_smile:

Does the Key Maker plugin need to be installed on the other sites that you want to apply the settings to?

No, the Key Maker plugin is used only to grab form submission values, so it’s needed only on the site where you create the key.
