The Akismet plugin's Settings page

Akismet is bundled in with WordPress and likely already installed on your WordPress site.

After you activate Akismet, a notice appears saying that the plugin requires additional configuration before it will function.

Check for an activation notice after you install any plugin. Although most plugins don’t offer such a notice, if one is available, it lets you know how to get started with the plugin. The Akismet plugin always has an activation notice after installation.

The link in the Akismet notice goes directly to the settings page for Akismet.

After you activate the plugin, Akismet creates an Akismet Configuration submenu entry under the Dashboard’s Plugins menu. Select this entry to get to the settings page.
