Contact Form 7
[resolved] Akismet not working with Contact form 7 (2 posts)

    I am trying to connect Akismet with contact form 7 for the first time. Below is my contact form information. Akismet is active on my wordpress site.

    When I try to test my form, with the words viagra (as my name) and viagra@test.com, contact form 7 sends my email, instead of kicking it out as spam.

    My form is at http://yoapandyoap.com/newsletter/

    How do I fix this?


    <p><font size="3" font color = "yellow">Your Name (required)</font>
        [text* your-name  akismet:author] </p>
    <p><font size="3" font color = "yellow">Your Email (required)</font>
        [email* your-email  akismet:author_email] </p>
    <p><font size="3" font color = "yellow">Input this code: </font>[captchac captcha-118 size:l fg:#000000 bg:#ffffff]
    [captchar captcha-118 4/4]</p>
    <p>[submit "Send"]</p>

    Spam Filtering with Akismet

    Finally, to make sure it works, you can test it by sending “viagra-test-123″ as name of the sender. This test case will always be judged as spam.

    The name usable for testing is viagra-test-123.
