Topic: [extension release] Akismet 2.0
Available for download from Quirm.net.
This is the beta release for the improved Akismet extension, based on code by Garciat.
Settings page now has in the Akismet section:
Akismet API Key
Ban period - How long Akismet will set the user ban for.
Member Min. Posts - Minimum amount of posts a member must have before they are not checked by Akismet
New page under management to handle posts marked as spam - Akismet (wot else!).
This page features a basic spam/ham count.
All spam is listed on one page, and via the select boxes you can delete them, or set them as ham.
One small and minor bug on this page: Deleting Topic starter posts in the list have the unfortunate side effect of deleting the entire topic - hough that may not be such a bad thing.
Individual posts can be marked as spam, or not spam by moderators and admin.
Posts you mark as spam are sent to akismet, and likewise posts marked as ham are also sent. This will go a long way to akismet getting better and better as time goes on.
The content of posts are hidden (possibly not on the search results page as yet - please let me know about that) for guests/members, but viewable with a warning for moderators/admin. I also disabled the reply link for posts marked as spam.
I think that's all! If you download it - remember it is beta and I would appreciate feedback on it - good and bad.
