We’ve had quite a few folks ask for some sort of button they could put on their site. Well, one of our users Nigel Kane went ahead and did one, which we’ve put in the FAQ (at the bottom). If anyone else is feeling artistically inclined, go ahead and send us your Akismet button and if we add it to the site we’ll upgrade your account to “Pro-blogger” for the year.
We’ve also had requests for a way to display the number of spams that have been blocked in your sidebar or on your site somehow, as some of you guys have pretty impressive numbers. There is a built-in option in the Akismet plugin for getting this but we don’t expose it as a widget or anything… yet! We’re looking at adding this to the next version of the plugin. In the meantime, Cavemonkey has the Akismet Spam Count plugin which makes it pretty easy.
Perhaps we could even have buttons that showed the count? That’d be doubly cool. Would you use one?
