Akismet problems

Hmm. I’m having problems with the Akismet anti-spam plugin for WordPress. It won’t let me review comments and I know from just before it went belly-up that it was screening out Brian’s comments as spam (clearly not the case). I’ve emailed the plugin author to alert him, but no news yet.
Anyone else had the problem of not being able to review messages? I’m using Akismet 1.12 on WP1.5. When I go to the review/moderate page, I get this error message where the list of messages should be displayed:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: get_post() in /var/www/vhosts/grayblog.co.uk/httpdocs/wp-content/plugins/akismet.php on line 253
Ideas?

  1. hey… i am also getting the same problem. I am awaiting reply from the plugin author as well. I know quite a few of my friends who have used that plugin without any probs.

    Just noticed that you too host your site with 34sp. Could it be anything to do with them? Pls do let me know if you manage to sort that out. Thanks.

  2. Still no news yet. I’ve started a thread on the WP support pages. I’ll also be upgrading to WP2.0 when it is released (although not necessarily immediately as I havefestive gluttony to do first!).
    As soon as there is any development, I’ll make a new post on this blog.
