Version 4.1.4 of the Akismet WordPress Plugin is Now Available

Version 4.1.4 of the Akismet plugin for WordPress is now available. It contains the following changes:

  • The plugin will now only redirect to the Akismet setup screen upon plugin activation if the plugin was activated manually from within the plugin-related screens, to help users with non-standard install workflows (like WP-CLI).
  • We’ve updated the layout of the initial setup screen to be more readable on small screens.
  • We’ve reduced the amount of code that runs when no API key has been entered yet.
  • We’ve improved the readability of the comment history entries.

To upgrade, visit the Updates page of your WordPress dashboard and follow the instructions. If you need to download the plugin zip file directly, links to all versions are available in the WordPress plugins directory.


  1. Thank you for the update.

    All bloggers need to try this plugin.

  2. My comments get caught by Akismet by mistake. What can I do to make Akismet identify my comments on others’ blogs as non-spams

    1. Hi,

      First of all, if possible, please contact these blog owners as they’re able to mark your comments spam or simply delete your comments.

      If that does not help, you can contact us here so we can review your comments.
