The Akismet widget displays the number of spam comments caught over the life of your blog by Akismet.

Here’s what it looks like when it’s added to a blog sidebar.


About Akismet

Every comment submitted on Edublogs.org blogs is checked against the Akismet servers.  Any comment identified as spam is automatically marked as spam and is sent to your comment spam folder.

Please note:

  • Akismet isn’t automatically installed on CampusPress sites.
  • If you would like Akismet installed on your CampusPress network you need to ask your Blog Support team to organize it by contacting Edublogs support.


Once you add the widget to your sidebar in Appearance > Widgets, you’ll see that the widget settings look like this:

The only option you have is to add your own custom title.
