    Hey all-

    how can I turn off all comment moderation? No matter what I do, everything goes to moderation and I can't seem to find a way to make that stop.

    any ideas, friends?

    No, I sure haven't. I have done all the different things suggested, and still, moderation remains ON, and unaffected.

    Would really love some help on this guys

    What anti-spam plugins are you using?

    OK - that's really weird! Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    I'm having the same problem

    "Email me whenever
    []anyone posts a comment
    []a comment is held for moderation

    Both are unchecked. Still getting notification emails to moderate spam comments.

    we are not using Akismet.

    I am looking for a way to disable the comment notification email generator.

    Try the steps suggested by Esmi.
    If you need further support then it'll be best to create your own thread.
