    It might be coming handy to you if you would like to unclutter the widgets interface of your wordpress blog: here is how to remove the Akismet Widget (that displays the number of spam blocked - hardly something you want your visitors to see).

    Add this to your functions.php file:

    function unregister_widgets(){
    unregister_widget( 'Akismet_Widget' );
    }
    add_action( 'widgets_init', 'unregister_widgets' );

    Here is a list of all sorts of widgets that you might want to remove (add them to the hereabove function):

    unregister_widget( 'WP_Widget_Pages' );
    unregister_widget( 'WP_Widget_Calendar' );
    unregister_widget( 'WP_Widget_Archives' );
    unregister_widget( 'WP_Widget_Links' );
    unregister_widget( 'WP_Widget_Categories' );
    unregister_widget( 'WP_Widget_Recent_Posts' );
    unregister_widget( 'WP_Widget_Search' );
    unregister_widget( 'WP_Widget_Tag_Cloud' );
    unregister_widget( 'WP_Widget_Meta' );
    unregister_widget( 'WP_Widget_Recent_Comments' );
    unregister_widget( 'WP_Nav_Menu_Widget' );
    unregister_widget( 'WP_Widget_RSS' );
    			unregister_widget( 'WP_Widget_Akismet' );
    			unregister_widget( 'Akismet_Widget' );

    I am using Thesis 2.1.7.

    I want to remove Akismet totally from my blog. I was able to remove the plugin from all of my other wordpress sites.

    On one of my websites, everytime I go into my cpanel and delete Akismet, it does not move out of my wp-content folder for some reason.

    WordPress is telling me there is a new version of Akismet.

    When I try to update to version 2.6.0 this is what happens:

    Update Plugin

    Downloading update from https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/akismet.2.6.0.zip…

    Unpacking the update…

    Installing the latest version…

    Removing the old version of the plugin…

    Could not remove the old plugin.

    Plugin update failed.

    Any ideas of how to remove Akismet?
