Blog Updates: Akismet and skribit

Akismet: Comment Spam filtering


Recently I have been getting unwanted spam comments to my blog post, so I went looking for an Akismet extension for BlogEngine.  When I had a WordPress blog it was there by default you just had to get a API Key form WordPress.  It works by checking comments against a centeralized black list, if it is ok the comment goes through, if not, squash!!!! I love it. 

Thankfully Justin Etheredge created the Akisment Extension, I highly recommend you make this addition to your blog to stop unwanted comments.

skribit: Blog Idea suggestion service


Added a new service to the blog called skribit, it is very similar to user voice, it allows you to suggest topics you would like to see blogged about.  So if you have an idea of something you would like to see covered in this blog give it a try.

Adding it to BlogEngine was a snap, just used the skribit widget creator and then copied the generated code and added it in the Settings page of you BlogEngine admin, scroll to the bottom and paste the widget code into the HTML head section. Voila, you are done!
