Akismet installation

  • Your advice please.

    I have no knowledge of php, but some html and css. I managed to set up the forum and it works fine, but when it comes to Akismet I have a problem.

    I have placed it in the plugin folder. When I go to Site Management to activate it, I have the warning “Plugin could not be activated; it produced a Fatal Error.”

    I have three other plugins which I have deactivated and still the same message.

    The API number has been placed on the config file as required.

    It is not integrated with WP.

    Any suggestions?

    There is no plugin for Akismet – it’s already included with bbPress. All you need to do is add your Akismet key to your config.php to use it That’s all.

    I think this will be changing in the future, but for current releases, it’s built in.

    Do I feel the idiot. I’ve just found mentioned under the CONTENT tab.

    Thanks chrishajer.

    May I just say a word to you guys who have created this. A great job!

    Although some better guidance on how to install it may help.

    Otherwise, well done. I hope you see read this.
