    hi all.

    Apologies if this is too easy... i did look in the codex, but didnt find anything straight forward.

    I would like comments auto-authorized - but i do want to make folks enter name + email. at the moment - the name and email are required, but it seems to leave the comments pending.

    many thanks!

    Under Options -> Discussions, the first set of check boxes (Usual settings for an article}, the 3rd (last) item,check Allow people to post comments on the article.

    Below that, the 3 set of boxes (Before a comment appears) make sure that only Comment author must fill out name and e-mail is checked.

    That should do it.
