Support » Plugins » [Plugin: Akismet] Not catching spam comments

  • I’ve also had a lot of spam (that’d be about 40 comments in an eight-hour period) sneak through my Askimet filter of later, most if not all of it going to this post (I disallowed comments to that post now). I verified that the Askiment plugin is activated. The problem just started occurring a few days ago.

    In a possibly related issue, Google is saying that my website “may be compromised.”

    Any idea how I can stop the spam onslaught? Thanks!

  • A few things to check:

    – make sure the Akismet plugin is still active
    – check the history of one of the ‘missed’ comments to see what Akismet did with it
    – review any server/network changes that may have resulted in sending inaccurate data to for spam checks
