Lesson 2 of 10 – Making your website a place to engage

Task 1: Install Akismet to Avoid Spam

Comment spam is a big problem as well as a nuisance. For it isn’t unusual at all to find sites without Akismet installed to have HUNDREDS of spam comments filling up their comments boxes. Perhaps this is even your case.

If it isn’t, then your task is to install the Akismet plugin. You may maybe find this plugin’s name funny, but when it comes to blocking comment spam, there’s nothing like it. Moreover, it is free and only takes a minute to set-up.

Here are the instructions on how to do this.

Before you can install the plugin, you will need to create a free Akismet account via the akismet.com website. You will find an option to donate money. But you DO NOT have to do that at all, for the plugin is totally free. Just make sure you move the “payment slider” to $0.
