Work Modes of Anti-Spam Plugin for WordPress MULTISITE

 

The Anti-Spam plugin provides a choice out of three work modes:

WordPress Multisite Work Modes

 

Mutual Account, Individual Access Keys

 

  • Each site uses an individual Access key, which is different from the network administrator key;
  • Each site has individual Anti-Spam logs, settings, personal lists;
  • Site administrators can change their keys on their own;
  • The "White Label" mode is available.

 

To activate the 'Mutual Account, Individual Access Keys' mode, copy the Hoster Access key from your CleanTalk profile and save it in the Anti-Spam plugin settings.

Plan

The plan depends on the number of sites in the network.

For example, you have 7 sites on the network - you need a 10 site package. 

Anti-Spam license for 1 site 

The number of CleanTalk profiles depends on the number of sites on the network.

For example, you have 5 sites on the network - you need to register 5 individual CleanTalk profiles with a 1 site license.
