Akismet Credit Inserter


A very simple mu-plugin to automatically (automattically?) insert a « Spam prevention powered by Akismet » notice (with hyperlink to Akismet.com) in the footer of each blog hosted on a WordPress Multiuser service to abide by the licensing terms of Akismet. Adds a small « Spam prevention powered by Akismet » to the footer of every blog to abide by Akismet licensing terms.


  • A very simple line of text (with a hyperlink to Akismet.com) is inserted in the footer of the blog.


  1. Place the akismet-credit-inserter.php file in wp-content/mu-plugins or, I suppose, in wp-content/plugins (but then it would need to be manually activated for each site…)
  2. there is no step 2


Any questions?

Yeah. Didn’t think so.
