Enabling Akismet’s Spam Prevention in phpFox

This article will show you how to enable the Akismet Spam Prevention for your phpFox website.

Akismet is a well-known tool to help prevent spam on your website.  In order to use Akismet on your phpFox site, you will first need to get an Akismet API key.

Go to https://akismet.com/signup/ and choose the plan you wish to sign up for.  Note that if you are running a commercial site, you will need to sign up for a paid plan.


Once you have your Akismet API key, login to your admincp and select Settings > Manage Settings.


On the Manage Settings screen, select Spam.


On the Spam settings screen, enter the full path to your phpFox website in the Akismet URL field, and enter the API Key that you received from Akismet in the Akismet API Key field.


When you have entered your Akismet information, you will need to make sure that Spam Check is enabled.  Scroll down a couple fields to find the Enable Spam Check setting and set it to True.


When done, click Submit.

You now have enabled Akismet Spam Check for your phpFox website!
