Akismet For Kunena

Akismet for Kunena integrates the popular antispam service Akismet.com with Kunena 3.x.

Unlike other antispam services, Akismet does not present the visitor with an ugly 'captcha'. Instead it scans the visitor's post, name and email address and runs hundreds of tests to determine whether it's spam or not.

It's a completely automated way to protect your Kunena forum from spammers.

Get a free or commercial API key from akismet.com and simply paste it in the plugin parameters. Don't forget to enable the plugin.
