:!: After running this plugin for a while in the dryrun mode it proved to be pretty useless because of too many false positives. It is not recommended to use this plugin. — Andreas Gohr 2006-11-09 21:17



You need an API key, which you can get for free when signing up at Enter the key in the Config Manager or set it manually in your local.conf:

$conf['plugin']['akismet']['apikey'] = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxx';

To get notified when an edit is blocked fill your email address into the notify option.

$conf['plugin']['akismet']['notify'] = '';

To enable the real blocking set dryrun to off. Otherwise you will only be notified but the edit will not be blocked.

$conf['plugin']['akismet']['dryrun'] = 0;
