Never Moderate Admin or Author

Description

DEPRECATED Never moderate or mark as spam comments made by the site admin or the post’s author regardless of the apparent spamminess of the comment.

”’THIS PLUGIN IS DEPRECATED AND NO LONGER NECESSARY AS OF WORDPRESS 2.5”’

”This plugin has been deprecated! It is no longer necessary as its functionality has been integrated into WordPress. There will not be any continued support for it.

When I released the plugin, I also simultaneously made a bug report and patch for the WP core, which was quickly accepted and applied.

Reported as a bug in trac ticket #1262. Fixed in WordPress in changeset #2556.”

The only configuration option available for the plugin is defined as an argument with a default value for the c2c_never_moderate_admin() function:

$min_user_level : All users with a user level greater than or equal to the value set for this argument will NEVER be moderated. By default, this value is ’10’, which means that only the site admin would never be moderated. If you set this to ‘0’, then everyone who has registered to your site will be able to make comments without being moderated/marked as spam. Setting it to ‘1’ would mean only those with the ability to write posts would be able to comment without moderation. Obviously, you can also define a value anywhere else in the range 0-10.

Installation

  1. Unzip never-moderate-admin-or-author.zip inside the /wp-content/plugins/ directory (or install via the built-in WordPress plugin installer)
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ admin menu in WordPress

FAQ

Doesn’t WordPress already do this?

Yes, it does now as a result of a patch I submitted. Which is why this plugin has been deprecated.
