Form Submissions being Marked as Spam

  1. Not sure why but all form submissions on a current site we are developing are being flagged as spam by gravity forms. Honeypot, Aksimet and captcha are all disabled. We are utilizing the user registration addon and are using the after_user_registered hook but I don't think that is the issue because at that point the entry would have already been created correct?

    Noticed that there was a similar topic here from a few weeks ago http://www.gravityhelp.com/forums/topic/submissions-going-to-spam

    Is there a way to disable a form from being marked/detected as "spam". Need the forms to submit automatically or else no one will be able to be registered in the site

    Same is happening with us, everything is flagged as spam by all of the Gforms we use! All spam extensions are turned off.
    This is annoying because GF doesn't send any emails to us because of this. :-/

    Solved: akismet was off for a year now... I had to switch akismet to ON, save, then to OFF again and now it works as it should... :-/

  3. @sirkhan thanks for the response. I actually ment to post that removing akismet fixed it for our situation. Your solution should work for others that still want akismet installed

  4. If Akismet is present and active on the site, all entries will be filtered through Akismet by default. If you want to prevent that, please use the gform_akismet_enabled filter:

    Will this solution, updating the common.php file, break when doing an automatic update?

    You should be using that hook in your theme's functions.php file. We just let developers know where our hooks are located if they need to expand things. Please don't edit core files.
