I use the PSXMail plugin for the contact form on this blog and I recently started to get a whole bunch of spam-like inane comments that did not make a whole lot of sense. The Akismet API is so easy to setup and test that I figured I would add the Akismet comment test to the PSXMail plugin and make everyone’s life easier.
In case others find it useful, you can download the latest version of this plugin below. Please report any bugs. NOTE: You have to have Akismet installed and activated as a plugin already with a valid Akismet Key.
Upgrade: Simply upload the new file and Akismet will take care of everything in the background.
Installation: Download the zip file, unzip, upload to your plugin directory and activate. Then create a new page with the word mailform within curly brackets as the content of the page. Now link to that page from anywhere to get your contact form. Other configuration instructions can be found on the original plugin page.
