Holding and hiding comments until they are approved (2 posts)

    Hi there

    I have set up WordPress 2 and I finally found the spot that lets people post without logging in. I have also turned on
    "A comment is held for moderation"
    and
    "An administrator must approve the comment (regardless of any matches below)"

    I get an email when a comment is made, but the comment is displayed before it is approved. Is there another setting somewhere that I need to turn on?

    What I want is this:
    user posts comment
    comment is held for approval, and not displayed in the blog
    once comment is approved, it is displayed

    Is this possible?

    "the comment is displayed before it is approved."
    Your blog, you see everything. I wouldn't.

    Use another browser from which you haven't logged into your blog. Make a comment and see what happens. It will either disappear or will post saying "Awaiting moderation" but you on your other browser will just see it.
