Hi, I'm just getting my website set up using Lesson 5, when activating the plug-ins I had four already installed however Akismet was not present, instead I have WP-Spamshield. I have however downloaded Akismet, it states that it is installed but is not showing up in the side menu underneath SI CAPTCHA anti-spam. Is this an issue that needs sorting out before I can move on? Thanks x:-)..

WA now has all new sites install WP-Spamshield instead of Akismet. (It is a fairly recent development.) WP-Spamshield does not require SI CAPTCHA.
So if you have WP-Spamshield, you are good to go!

Good morning. Akismet was recently replaced by WP-Spamshield. It had something to do with Akisment no longer offering the service for free, I believe. Feel free to delete Akismet and make sure WP is activated.
