What does this plugin do?
This Joomla! component is UNUSABLE alone: other components HAVE TO USE IT. Consider this component as a Framework. It help other developers integrate Akismet in their code. This component is simply a bridge, hiding Akismet details and providing an unified way to use Akismet in Joomla 3rd party component code.

NEW: Slider administrator panel.

: New API more like in Joomla! 1.5, but the old one is still working

require_once (_JOOMLA_AKISMET_ADMIN_BASE . '/akismetJoomlaAPI.php');
$JoomlaAkismetAPI = JoomlaAkismetAPI::getJoomlaAkismetAPI();
$JoomlaAkismetAPI->isKeyValid("123456789");


NEW: Using Akismet PHP 5 engine version 0.4 (author Alex Potsides http://www.achingbrain.net/)

  • Performance - changed HTTP version from 1.1 to 1.0 (with thanks to Jan De Poorter).
  • Performance - No longer issues a separate HTTP request to check validity of the API key with every instantiation.
  • Added a new public method 'isKeyValid' to manually check validity of the API key passed to the constructor.
  • The method 'isCommentSpam' (rather than the constructor) will now throw an exception if the API key is invalid.
  • Tidied up internal structure a bit.
