Adding CFAkismet to BlogCFC

Adding CFAkismet to BlogCFC

The other day I posted about some mods I made to BlogCFC. A few people have asked me to share the code so I thought I'd walk through the changes in a couple of blog posts. For this post I'm going to show how I added Brandon Harper's CFAkismet to my BlogCFC installation.

This post is going to assume you are making the changes to the default download of BlogCFC 5.9.

Note: To make applying this mod a little easier I've posted a .zip with diffs of all the files I modified. (Click the download link at the bottom of the post to get files.)

James Marshall's Gravatar I'd just like to thank you for posting this! Yesterday I migrated my blog from WordPress to BlogCFC and one of my concerns was spam (which I never had a problem with in WP using Akismet).

The instructions worked for me, but it wasn't until I got to the end of the post that I realised you had posted a ZIP, so I did the changes manually!

Nathan Mische's Gravatar @James - I'm glad the instructions worked for you. I've edited the post to mention the download before I dive into the mods.

Mike Henke's Gravatar Thanks. You inspired me to ask for help with getting CFAkismet into Machblog in Machii's user group. And it was answered

Sebastiaan's Gravatar Hi,

how about using CFFormProtect instead, which incorporates CFAkismet?

Then people don't need ot fill in those silly CAPTCHA's ;-)

Nathan Mische's Gravatar @Sebastiaan - If someone publishes detailed instructions on how to integrate CFFormProtect into BlogCFC such that I can easily report spam back to Akismet I'll consider it ;)
