Spam Karma 2 Akismet Plugin

I have updated the Spam Karma 2 Akismet Plugin that was released as BETA some months ago. I don’t want to be like all those hip web 2.0 permanent betas, so we leave this state for now. I bumped the version number of this small plugin to 2.0 and made some modifications:

  • fixed a logic error which prevented the plugin to submit some corrections to Akismet.com
  • changed some strings and default values (now checks against Akismet.com more often to give that service more to eat)
  • there is now a little readme in the php-file
  • fsockopen could produce php warnings which revealed the wordpress.com api key which was fixed, too

The location of the plugin is the same as before: sk2_akismet_plugin.zip

Make sure you have an installed Spam Karma 2.x, download the zipfile, unzip it to your wp-content/plugins/SK2/sk2_plugins directory and enter your WordPress.com Api Key (now available for free if you sign up there and I should get money for referring people there *g*) in the Spam Karma 2 settings. Finished! Nothing more to do for you :-)
If you are upgrading, you only need to copy the sk2_akismet_plugin.php from the zip over your old one.

Have a spamless blog and a good time!

P.S.: Bug reports go into the comment section. Thanks!

P.P.S.: 156 downloads of the beta in the last 3 months. Thanks!

Update:
Version 2.1 now features the display of its own version and I have recorded 640 downloads so far :-)
