Can I disable Akismet

Unread post by metuckness » 13 Aug 2014, 04:09

Now that I have CleanTalk setup, can I disable Akismet? Akismet catches a lot of spam, just curious if they work together or if Akismet is not needed?

Thanks

Hello,

Sure, you can use both antispam tools together. In this case probably you will have bigger false/positive rate (when legitimate comments/signups denies), but you will have stronger antispam proteciton for your website.

So, you should choose by yourself disable or enable Akismet.

Thanks for the question!

OK thank you! I am going to try it with and without and see how much, if any, spam gets through with each one enabled by itself.
