A Django app that contributes Akismet and Keyword blocking to your django comments.

Project description

This Django application contributes a moderation class to Django’s comment app that provides:

Quick installation

Here is a quick installation guide for users who are familiar with comment moderation:

from comments_spamfighter.moderation import SpamFighterModerator

class EntryModerator(SpamFighterModerator):

    # Regular options by django's contributed CommentModerator

    auto_moderate_field = 'created'
    email_notification = True

    # Spam fighter options

    # Check with Akismet for spam
    akismet_check = False

    # If Akismet marks this message as spam, delete it instantly (False) or
    # add it the comment the moderation queue (True). Default is True.
    akismet_check_moderate = True

    # Do a keyword check
    keyword_check = True

    # If a keyword is found, delete it instantly (False) or add the comment to
    # the moderation queue (True). Default is False.
