8 years, 1 month ago
I am getting 200-300 spam comments a day. Finally I gave up and tried to activate akismet. I got this error:
The key you entered could not be verified because a connection to akismet.com could not be established. Please check your server configuration.

I have got the exact same problem – except getting 200-300 spams every day… My akismet activation is just not possible… Is it, that my host is not allowing anything? Like outgoing HTTP ? Can anybody help?
I am having the same issue. I’ve looked all over the forum and haven’t found a good solution.

I have the same problem. I just loaded up WP2.7 to fresh database and website using MimboPro theme. Did anyone figure out what the issue is and how to fix?
How bout using WP-re-Captcha ?
Try installing it manually instead of using the widget – mine works perfectly.
