Hello:
I am trying to create an Akismet account. It asked me to log in using WordPress. I tried to do so, and it told me my info was wrong. I have tried everything that I can think of but can't seem to get past this. I'm so frustrated! Can someone help, please? I have followed every direction and reset passwords multiple times!

Thanks,
Julie

If your website is hosted at WA then you don't need Akismet.

You have to go to http://Wordpress.COM http://www.wordpress.com and create an entirely new account there to register for it. You can't use your Wordpress.ORG login details, they are different things.

However, If you're hosting here, you no longer need Akismet. :)

I am going through the training, and it says to create the account. Am I to understand that it may be outdated?

Yes. Just make sure that Site Protect under Details is turned on. :)

You don't need askimet plugin here for your blogs! It stops spam, and WA has everything setup for that, so that plugin would be useless here! :)

Thank you, Terry, and everybody. Looks like WA needs to update the training to reflect that. Would have saved me a lot of time and frustration, lol.
