My Akismet plugin is currently not active. My web developer originally told me that it might filter out the legitimate posts to my website http://www.insuranceclaimhelp.org. But I am getting 25 spams for every legit post. If I try the Akismet temporarily, can I see what it filtered out to see if the legit posts got filtered? And can I move the legit posts back?
Most of the spam I get is like mixed up words from a book.
I would leave it turned on. It doesn’t delete the spam so you can browse them and if they really are not spam you can approve them to be posted. It won’t hurt to turn it on. It will if you leave it off.
If I make Akismet active for my wordpress site on the ich.org admin plugins page and have a page on the ich.org site with a link to the bbPress forum page, will Akismet automatically follow that link and monitor the bbpress posts, or would it just think it was a link to another website and not follow that link?
