First off, I am on GoDaddy Hosting. I have never used their services and also I haven't used WP either. This is all a FIRST for me. Here is my URL: http://shannonenterprisesonline.com When I first installed WP I was only going to have the one web site but after reading up on Multisite and what I could do with subdomains and WP plugins for mapping other URL's, I decided to go with the Multisite (Network) route. When I only had the one site up I was getting an average of 3 to 5 comments a day with no spam. When I changed it to Multisite (adding the line of code to the WP.config.php file) (I think that was the file, I would have to look at my notes again) everything CHANGED. I started getting over 500 comments a day and they were all spam. Them it jumped to 1000 a day. I added the Akismet plugin and all the spam was then put in the spam folder but that did NOT help with the problem, the spam and why I was getting so much just because I changed to MU. So I removed the Multisite code and all the comments STOPPED.
Can anyone tell me why this is happening and how to get my multisite up and running, without all the spam coming back? I haven't done any changing of permalinks or any other change that I can think of that would result in all this spam. Not to mention all the good comments no longer reach my box either. I would appreciate any and all the help this community could give me!
Thanks, in advance, for your kind attention and forth-coming response, [sig removed]
