Akismet with problems? (5 posts)

    I am noticing that more and more spam is getting past my Akismet plugin lately. About 15 spam comments every day, and they seem to be targeting a specific post. Is there something going wrong with Akismet? Should I delete this specific post? Change its text/links?

    Make sure to mark the comments as 'Spam', that will send information back to Akismet.com so that it can learn from them.

    If they continue, still mark them as spam and then send the details to Akismet support.

    The updated version of Akismet definitely has problems - it is causing my images to not upload properly and I am getting an HTTP error. Everything is fine as soon as the plugin is deactivated. Anyone else having this problem?

    @prosperewebitor -

    What is the HTTP error? Anything in the web server error logs?

    Joseph,

    Figured out the problem. Don't think it's Akismet (thought it was, based on previous plugin testing).

    Sorry!
