akismetcomments - Rejects comments using akismet...


Run comments and trackbacks through Akismet to see whether to reject them or not.


Requires the comments plugin.

This plugin comes with Pyblosxom. To install, do the following:

  1. Add Pyblosxom.plugins.akismetcomments to the load_plugins list in your config.py file.

  2. Install the akismet library. You can get it at http://www.voidspace.org.uk/python/modules.shtml#akismet

  3. Set up a Wordpress.com API key. You can find more information from http://faq.wordpress.com/2005/10/19/api-key/ .

  4. Use this key to put put the following line into your config.py file:

    py['akismet_api_key'] = 'MYKEYID'
  5. Add $(comment_message) to the comment-form template if it isn’t there already.

    When akismetcomments rejects a comment, it’ll populate that variable with a message explaining what happened.


This plugin merges the work done on the akismetComments.py plugin by Blake Winton with the the akismet.py plugin by Benjamin Mako Hill.
