Akismet Comment Spam

Filed under:
Akismet Comment Spam

A plug-in that uses public Akismet API to filter out your comment and track-back spam for you. Once installed, it will check every posted comment, and ones detected as spam leave in your comments queue as "Pending", so you can manually review, and/or delete them.

Plugin version:
1.0 Beta

Vivvo version:
4.5.2

Description:
Akismet is a hosted web service that saves you time by automatically detecting comment and trackback spam, accessed through plugins and API.

Once installed, it will check every posted comment, and ones detected as spam leave in your comments queue as "Pending", so you can manually review, and/or delete them.

In order to use this plugin, you'll need to register an API key with Akismet. The API key is a string of letters and numbers that acts like a username/password, allowing you to login to the Akismet service.

How does it work?

Each time a new comment, trackback, or pingback is added to your site it's submitted to the Akismet web service which runs hundreds of tests on the comment and returns a thumbs up or thumbs down. As a result, you don't have to waste your time sorting through and deleting spammy comments from your blog.
