Which Spam Plugin Disables Moderation Panel? (28 posts)

    Can anyone tell me which of the following spam plugins disables the moderation panel? With my current configuration of spam plugins, comments go directly to my blogs without being stopped at the moderation panel. Unfortunately there are spammers and others who are still posting to my blogs and the current configuration makes it harder to delete the spams than managing them from the moderation panel.

    Does anyone know?

    Akismet
    Bad Behavior
    Spam Karma 2
    CJD Spam Nuke

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know for certain, but I don't think any of those plugins "disable" the moderation que...

    If you want to enable the ability to moderate comments, go in your admin panel, goto options > discussion - make sure the option A comment is held for moderation is checked.

    Hope that helps

    Nice try, but the check marks have been in in the right place right along. It was not until I hired someone to add spam plugins that this problem occurred.

    One of these plugins or perhaps the combination disables the moderation panel. I thought someone here might know before I deactivate them.

    Thanks.

    ok, then maybe you should contact the person who you hired to add the spam plugins and ask them to figure it out - since that seems to be, as you stated when you started to have the issue.

    Splanters,

    Great idea. I tried that, also. Asked him about three times. He seemed miffed that I had a problem or that I wanted the moderation panel. Could not tell which. So that is a dead end.

    Does anyone have any experience with these spam plugins?

    Well,

    why don't you try this... let's backup to when you first started having the issue. Have you tried to disable the plugins and see where that gets you?

    As I said above, I wanted to check here before doing that because if anyone knows which one it is, it would save me a lot of time. If no one knows, then I will have to do it myself by trial and error.

    Well,

    It would be extremely difficult to know which one as everyones setup is different. I get what you're saying though.

    Relax man, everyone's here to help. It gets frustrating sometimes, we've all be there. However, if you get more frustrated, I'll be forced to unleash whooami on you....

    Granted, I'm not the most knowledgeable when it comes to wordpress, so that may not be a bad thing

    Many of the spam plugins effectively disable moderation. You can get a plugin specifically for SpamKarma2 to force it to let you moderate. The rest I don't know about, other than that there have been reports for several versions now that moderation is sidetracked when using them.

    Get the SK2 moderate plugin here: http://blog.ftwr.co.uk/wordpress/sk2-moderate-plugin/

    well im done with the other thread ...SOOOOOOOOOOOOO..

    to the OP: have you tried disabling the plugins one at a time and checking to see if that fixes the moderation issue? It's a bit of a pain, but simple enough to do:

    1. disable a plugin
    2. Post a comment not as your-logged-in-self.
    3. Check to see if its available to moderate.

    thats what I would do.

    Vkaryl, Thanks for this plugin, I will check it out. I knew there must be others who have experienced moderation being bypassed with the spam plugins.

    Splanters, thanks for hanging in there with your suggestions.

    It is not Akismet nor Bad Behavior. Akismet doesn't touch comments that pass the check there. Bad Behavior doesn't change comments that make it through the system at all, it's a blocker, preventing the comment from making it into wordpress in the first place.

    I'd venture a guess that Spam Karma 2 is the problem.

    whooami, I have not done this yet, as you say, it is a pain and very time consuming. I figured that I must not be the first one to experience it, so I wanted to check here first to see if anyone knew about the problem.

    welp, the clocks ticking (this thread is 2 hours old already) .. all this posting, you could have done by now :P and already have found out whether or not it was a plugin. Its only 4 plugins/4 comments, *might* have taken you 15 mins :)

    **Confuscious say: It's amazing how long some folks will wait for someone to help them when they might have figured it out themselves in a lot less time

    Wow, Whooami, that's got to be the rudest response I have ever gotten from a "support" forum.

    I was not expecting anyone to do it "for" me. I was asking for wisdom from the group. I hoped to discover if others had a similar problem and found solutions. When information is shared, many can benefit.

    you ought to learn to read instead of assuming .. I said nothing about you expecting anyone to "do it" for you. In fact, I didnt even use those words..

    I said, had you done what I suggested, you would have already had the answer by now. There isnt ANYTHING that says you couldnt have come back here with the results -- thus sharing that information for the rest of the planet.

    AND .. for what its worth, I included several smileys.. something which you've sorely ommitted in any of your terse replies above. Atleast, *I* attempted some levity.

    This is a support forum, not a "coddle to everyone's insecurities" forum.

    The simple fact remains that youve been offered support, by spanters, by valkyl, by Otto, and by me. Take it, leave it. Wait some more.. frankly, I dont think anyone will lose sleep over your choice one way or the other.

    I will suggest though, that you remove your rather large chip off your shoulder. My reply was hardly rude, especially if you know me.

    MACinSM,

    whooami really isn't a bad guy - there really is a nice person just bursting to get out. Any minute now. Also, You DID wrangle a few smile's outta him, so you are doing something right....

    I think he was just trying to say - "here's a few helpful suggestions - go read and learn so you'll know how to do it yourself"

    I think I'm going to become the official whooami translator soon. Relax MACinSM, it's all good mate.

    splanter, once is enough, thanks.

    However, Im going to ask *this* nicely..

    whooami really isn't a bad guy - there really is a nice person just bursting to get out. Any minute now.

    Lay off the personal attacks.

    1. This isnt your soapbox, anymore than it's mine, and you will be hard-pressed to find a thread here where I've publically ridiculed anyone's character.

    2. You. dont. know. me.

    if you can't respect that request, I'll just email the mods with regards to your posts, as I see fit.

    Whooami,

    I think you may have taken my post in the wrong way - I meant it in a nice way - was attempting to be humorous at the same time... as I can see, that just doesn't seem to work with you. As for emailing me or not, that's your choice, I'm certainly not losing sleep over it.

    As for this being anyone's soap box, I don't ever recall me saying that... however, you will notice the high incident rate at which people seem to take offense at your responses to them... I think it says more about you (your need to be rude, crude, or borderline mean-spirited more times than not) than anyone and their "need for emotional coddling" - a quote you made, or something similiar.

    My take is really simple. I think more people would be willing to show up here and ask questions - and they should as wordpress rocks. Yet, there are some people that just feel a certain "need" to answer questions in a manner that is less than helpful, or polite.

    As for emailing the mods - please, by all means go for it. I've not done anything that I'm ashamed of. I've tried to be helpful at best. In your case, I'm just sick of people feeling a certain need to be mean-spirited.

    As for you being nice to me - save it. I'm not someone who's going to go run for cover from an idiot.

    To which I say -- this forum has mods --of which you are not one. There are people here that know how to get in touch with me should I say anything they find out of line.

    That you persist in commenting on me (scroll up for the first reference to me that you made before I had even joined in this thread), says something about you, does it not?

    And once again:

    You. dont.know.me

    Dont presume to think that you do. Hell, You cant even get my gender right..


    As for you being nice to me - save it. I'm not someone who's going to go run for cover from an idiot.

    And yet you persist in the personal attacks ..

    The forum has mods... yup, sure does. But why would they really need to police juvenile behavior.... I mean, you don't really seem to care that you offend people - "cause there are mods hat know how to get in touch with me should I say anything they find out of line"

    As for getting your gender correct, well, if you act like you do, most will assume you are a guy.. but I fail to see how that really means anything, unless we're reverting to junior-high school attacks

    Again, as for any mention of you in this thread, it's been in jest, in an attempt to make peace with you - something that just doesnt' seem possible, nor am I of a mind to care about at this point.

    You really have some chip on your shoulder. I really like this platform (wordpress) and I hate to see people go look elsewhere cause they feel humiliated by somebody like you.

    As for knowing you - I don't pretend to, and trust me, I don't want to and I doubt I'm alone

    splanters & whooami,

    If you don't have to add anything to the original question of the thread - please, take your personal fight elsewhere.
    Further personal attacks will be deleted.

    Thanks for your understanding.
