Filter out spam form entries with Akismet, saving you time and resources. Let Akismet work on detecting spam for you, so you can get on with more important aspects of your business.
Spam Protection for WordPress
Akismet is a powerful spam protection solution. Used by millions of websites, Aksimet checks form submissions against its global database of spam – training, identifying and filtering out malicious entries. Working in the background, Aksimet can save you hours of moderation time, freeing you up to concentrate on what matters most, your business!
You can integrate your forms seamlessly with Akismet using the Gravity Forms Akismet Add-On in conjunction with the Akismet Spam Protection plugin. When enabled, all form submissions will be checked by Akismet.
A submission identified as spam by Akismet will then have its entry property set to spam, which will ensure notifications aren’t processed and submission data isn’t sent on to any add-ons.
Site-Wide and Form-Level Settings
The Gravity Forms Akismet Add-On gives you control over your setting preferences, both globally and at form-level. Enable or disable the Akismet Add-On across your whole site via the Gravity Forms Settings page. Then make decisions on a per-form level by configuring Akismet through Form Settings.
Mapping Form Fields
To ensure Akismet filters your form entries correctly, you need to send accurate data to the service. The Gravity Forms Akismet Add-On allows you to map your form fields to ensure the correct field data is sent to Akismet, helping to provide more reliable results.
This is particularly useful for more complex forms, and can significantly improve the identification of spam form entries, as well as prevent legitimate entries being labelled as spam.
Gravity Forms is committed to helping our users combat spam form submissions. We provide a number of add-ons and built-in features to help prevent spam. These include…
Gravity Forms Akismet Add-On
