    Right now I have members that are posting content on my site without my approval. How is that possible?

    i have a test account and when post with it I need to approve it. But why does other post without my permission?
    And also the comments are off. I want them on on members that are posting.

    Anyone how how to solve this?

    Check the roles of the users. Each role has different permissions.

    Everyone is author. Also my test account. But using my test account I need to approve my post within the admin account. But every one else that are posting is getting their approved direct. I don't get it. What am I missing? Are they using some software for that?

    I just created my site and I get about 50 new members every day.

    I found it. It was the admin bar above my site that made access for authors to login to dashboard and make posts.

    I just disable it for everyone.

    you can see from the Capability vs. Role Table that authors can publish posts.

    set them to contributors.
