[resolved] is comment moderation default? (6 posts)

    are all post comments held for moderation by default?

    i'm just wondering if someone's comment could bypass moderation, like is there a setting I can toggle 'moderate all comments' or accidentally 'do not moderate comments'?

    Comment moderation depends on your settings in Admin/Settings/Discussion.

    thnx esmi,

    so, to resolve this

    in the Admin > Settings > Discussion panel

    if I uncheck the option that says:
    'Before a comment appears' : 'An administrator must always approve the comment'

    some comments might appear without me moderating/approving them?
    specifically (given the following options)
    - all comments with less than the stipulated number of links
    - all comments from users with previously approved comments

    if that initial box is unchecked
    - what about registered WP.com users' comments?
    - what about random folks who comment and provide name/email?

    Yes

    what about registered WP.com users' comments

    A self-hosted blog has no connection with wordpress.com, so wp.com users won't be treated any differently than A. Random Visitor.
