Support » Fixing WordPress » Blank page after comment – cause Akismet

  • When users post a comment, they are sent to a blank page.
    I have noticed, switching off Akismet solves the problem. Obviously this is not ideal.
    I have custom permalinks set to /%category%/%postname%/. I think the problem lies here somewhere between this custom permalink and Akismet’s redirect??

    Any suggestions anyone?

  • Yeap that’s true. Akismet causes that problem. I had to deactivate it too. This issue was discussed already on many blogs all of them offering different solutions but Akismet causess the problem.

    I hope they’ll realize soon as possible and offer a quick plugin upgrade.

    I just tried posting a comment to my blog (using a browser and email address it doesn’t know is me) and it worked fine, no blank page. Is there some particular feature(s) that cause the problem with Akismet?

    Me too I have the problem of blank page after sending a comment: I’ve deactivated Akismet, and now everything is working fine again. I don’t know why Akismet suddenly started to cause this problem: I’ve made no recent modification to the template or theme of my blog…


    I had the same problem in one of my installations. Deactivating Akismet solved it.

    But the problem is sporadic and selective. It happens only in certain networks.

    I know the problem.. Akismet BLOCK all .info domains automatically.
