Comments appear on website even though it wasnt approved (6 posts)

    Hello,

    I have searched all over for a solution to a bug with my blog. I have it setup in the "Discussions" settings to have "An administrator must always approve the comment" checked, so no comments will show on the website until it is approved.

    For some reason, comments instantly show on the website as soon as it is posted.

    Any suggestions as to why?

    Only thing checked is the "Allow Comments On This Post"

    Under Settings > Discussion Settings
    Check "Comment author must have a previously approved comment"
    and "An administrator must always approve the comment"

    Both the "Comment author must have a previously approved comment"
    and "An administrator must always approve the comment" are already checked.

    That is why I am so confused, because comments are still showing instantly on the website anyway.

    Are you running any comment related plugins?
