Some comments don't go into moderation (4 posts)

    Forgive me if this topic has already been posted. I'm writing because for some reason, not all my comments are being put into the moderation queue for me to approve before they go live on my website. I have Askimet and Spam Karma which filters out the spam, but for some reason, other comments (that may or may not be spam) are surpassing the moderation queue and get published without my prior approval, even though I'd set up my wordpress not to publish comments without my approval. Can anyone tell me why this is?

    Thanks!

    Hi there, have you set your system so that
    An administrator must always approve the comment.
    You can do this by going to settings, comments, discussion.
    hope this helps.mike.

    thanks mike. actually i have checked the box that says that I'm to moderate each comment before it gets published. now recently i've gotten spam karma installed. do you think this plug-in affects how some of the comments are published without being moderated?

    Hi again, i've never used spam karma, so have no experience of it.
    I use akismet, and have never had any problems with comments, maybe someone using karma will comment here.
    I can;t imagine it would effect them, if they are set to be moderated as you say.
    hope it works out.
    mike.
