    hi,
    i am a newbie wp user and i seem to be having trouble in the approvals of post comments. I Approved a certain comment, WP emails me that the comment was approved but I cant see the approved comments on the site. Plus it always appears on the Pending Approvals section. I was able to approve previous comment but not this time.

    i unchecked this 2 items in the comment settings
    An administrator must always approve the comment
    Comment author must have a previously approved comment

    pls help
    thanks

    I found a fix, but its not a permanent one.
    Edit the comment in question, then select "Approved" from the status menu.. and its approved> Obviously its not a final solution, but its a temporary one!

    I am also unable to approve comments in any usual way using WP 2.8. The approval links generate rather long and wrong looking URLs like:

    edit-comments.php?s=&mode=detail&comment_status=all&pagegen_timestamp=2009-07-07+03%3A13%3A41&_total=5937&_per_page=20&_page=1&action=approve&doaction=Apply&_wpnonce=674abe9cbf&_wp_http_referer=%2Fwp-admin%2Fedit-comments.php&comment_type=all&delete_comments[]=69683&action2=-1

    Thanks for this tip! That was apparently what the problem was for me, too. A shame; I liked the plugin.
