I notice that in the list of plugins readily available in my theme, Akismet is not included. Instead I have WP-SpamShield, which sounds like it serves a similar purpose to Akismet. Do I still need to activate Akismet or would it be an overkill? This is my first website, so wanting to be sure. Many thanks

Yeah, exactly. You don't need captcha either. The training is going to be updated to reflect this very soon!

Akismet is not used anymore. They stopped with providing their service for free so that is why we changed to WP SpamShield. You are good to go. Nancy.
