BP Group Forums and Akismet

Is Akismet integrated with BuddyPress Group Forums?

If so, is there any way to control Akismet settings related to filtering of forum posts?

If not, is there any way to integrate the Akismet and Forums?

    Hiya,

    Is Akismet integrated with BuddyPress Group Forums?

    No. Askimet is really only for WordPress comments.

    If not, is there any way to integrate the Akismet and Forums?

    Not really. BuddyPress Forums are just an integration of bbPress, though if you're getting Spam that means you have users signing up and spamming - for which I would recommend our anit-splog plugin here:

    Does this help? Maybe I haven't understood the issue correctly.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Mason,

    We haven't actually turned Forums on yet, so this is all somewhat hypothetical. The forum spam question came up during a client meeting.

    I'm not sure the anti-splog plugin will help in this case as we aren't offering user blogs, just user profiles and group membership with forum participation.

    Your point about spamming members is a good one. I guess if we have problems we'll deal directly with individual members.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
