Can't get Akismet to load with Bedrock setup

I’m feeling like I’m missing something very simply here…I’ve implemented Bedrock on my “classic” site (i.e., the theme/setup I was already using, not my massive rewrite I’ve mentioned in other posts). This uses a commercial theme which is a child of Genesis, but I don’t think that should matter.

For some reason, I can get all my plugins to load properly EXCEPT for akismet. I have the following in my composer.json:

"wpackagist-plugin/akismet": "*"

When I do a cap deploy to my prod site, the akismet plugin exists in the plugins directory. However, it doesn’t show up in the plugins (either active or inactive).

What am I missing?

No reason why it shouldn’t work. Perhaps try assigning it the latest version number? Is there are error when you run composer?

So weird. It was adding the plugin to the folder just fine, but when I specified the version, it suddenly all started working delightfully :slight_smile:
