WordPress Plugins: TypePad AntiSpam for WordPress and WordPress.com Stats for Movable Type

June 4, 2008 | 1 Comment

WordPress and WordPress.com are Automattic products, while Movable Type and TypePad are SixApart products. These two companies are fierce competitors for the blogging platform crown, but here’s a surprise: you can actually use two of their plugins for the “opposing camp”.

TypePad AntiSpam

TypePad AntiSpam is SixApart’s answer to Automattic’s Akismet. It’s completely compatible with the latter, and like it you’ll need to register for an API key, also for free. Get started here.

WordPress.com Stats

WordPress.com Stats is an analytics program for self-hosted WordPress and WordPress.com users alike. Movable Type users can run this plugin as well, but they’ll also need a corresponding API key. Complete details found here.

It’s clear that these two companies are looking to expand their userbase not just with their blog software but with other projects in tow.
