    I keep getting the following error when I try to install this through the wp plugins panel:

    Downloading install package from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wp-antispambot.zip…

    Unpacking the package…

    Installing the plugin…

    The package could not be installed. No valid plugins were found.

    Plugin install failed.

    I've installed all my other plugins this way without any problems so I don't know why this one is giving me an error.

    I think the problem is that this plugin has bad folder structure.
    In the trunk should be plugin files and now there are extra folder "wp-antispambot". IMHO developer commit plugin files not correctly.
    You may try to install plugin manually by unzipping folder to your computer and sending files via ftp.

    P.S. By the way, you may try to use anti-spam plugin. It blocks spam in comments automatically and without captcha.
    It is very easy to use: just install and it works invisibly for admin and for users.

    I see what you mean about the folder structure. I did the manual install like you suggested and it worked perfectly. I will try the other plugin you suggested as well.

    Thanks for helping me out!

    I have fixed the issue. The plugin files are now in the right place with no extra folder.
