Akismet is a spam filtering engine that analyzes incoming comments & prevents them from posting if they're spam. This can save quite a bit of time & effort in managing any WordPress site that has public comments. Fused would be happy to provide you with an Akismet key if requested, simply reach out to us.

Akismet Activation & Installation

Since Akismet is installed with every installation of WordPress, all you need to do it enable it: 

Activate the Plugin in WordPress:

  • Log in to your WordPress Dashboard
  • Click on Plugins
  • Once the page reloads, click Activate in the Akisment Plugin section 

Activate Your Akismet Account:

  • Next, click the gigantic Activate your Akismet account button

  • Next, click the I already have a key link

Enter Your Akismet API Key:

  • Fused is happy to provide an API key for our customers, free of charge. Just ask any support team member for a copy.
  • Enter the API key into the Akismet API Key field.
  • Click the Save Changes button.

That's it! You're all done.

In addition to the peace of mind from knowing Akismet is keeping a watchful eye for spam, you'll now have an Akismet Stats page in your Dashboard to peruse at your leisure.
