I need a bit of hands-on time with someone who knows how to troubleshoot WordPress installations.
I recently had to upgrade my WordPress installation due to an exploit that inserted a malicious URL in one of my widgets. Since then, my spam filter has not been operating correctly. I am not sure whether Akismet is working very slowly or not working at all, but the net result is that I am having to approve every post by hand.
There is a suspicious thing visible from my admin account. It looks as though Akismet is installed twice.
I suspect the fix for this is something simple, but I don’t know what it is. Can anybody help?
