How to STOP running Akismet in bbPress only

  • I would like to stop using Akismet in bbPress only and keep it running for my WordPress blog. The reason is only registered authors of the blog can access bbPress and hence there is no need to check spam from them. What Akismet ends up doing is blocking sometimes authors’ messages in bbPress.

    Is there a simple way to do this without upsetting Akismet in my WordPress blog?

  • Yes. Do not supply a valid Akismet key.

    Akismet will not work if you don’t have a value between the ” in the akismet portion of the config.php. If you don’t have a valid key (as fel64 mentioned), it does the same thing.
