#162 magazine suddenly drowning in spam
Closed: Fixed None Opened 5 years ago by mattdm.

Either the spam detection plugin broke somehow, or someone has found a way around it -- we're getting dozens and dozens of spam comments in the moderation queue.


akismet isn't loading. Gives an error:

I tried to remove it and reinstall (nb temporarily gave me admin privs) but it doesn't help -- same error.

Got this corrected :)

This was related to this:

I had to restart the magazine but it was only down for a few minutes. It looks like even though askimet was reinstalled, the gear that hosts the site was keeping files locked. A restart resolved this issue.
