hello everyone, i am new to WordPress and succesfully installed it last night, it is NOT vital to my site that I aloow comments, but i think it would be nice, however, i have read many posts from this forum and it seems spam is going to be a major issue.
My question is this.......
Would i be able to set up my blog so that ONLY registered users can post? and if i make it so that the admin manually approves the new registrations & i have one of those code input things i.e "Enter 6478" to continue.
Would the above work?
The only problem i can see from the above is if i approve a registration and then it turns out to be a spammer, but ideally i will only allow a select group of my friends to have accounts.
Will this work? or will the spammers find other ways?
