  • Resolved neodan


    I have (1) pending comment, everytime I approve it, it goes back to pending. Any ideas?

    I DO NOT have admin must approve nor must have a previous comment approved checked, so I don’t see why I even need to accept it in the first place? But even when I do approve it, it goes back to pending…

  • I have the same problem. Any solutions? I have a solitary comment which reappears in ‘Pending’ after I approve it. Have repeated it many times, but it still remains pending.

    Don’t know if a moderator exists on WordPress Forums. Most queries remain unanswered. Most depressing.

    There are many moderators on these forums, and we’re all volunteers who stop by to answer a few questions whenever we get a spare moment in our own busy lives. I apologize for the inconvenience.

    Try deactivating all plugins. If that resolves the issue, reactivate each one individually until you find the cause.

    If that does not resolve the issue, try switching to the Default theme (WordPress 1.5 – 2.9.2) or the Twenty Ten theme (WordPress 3.0 and higher) to rule-out a theme-specific issue.

    Thanks James. No apologies required. But I seem to be getting exasperated with this new version/ blog of mine even though I have been using WP for the past one year with my other blog and have had no major problems. Regarding this comment not getting approved, I am using Twenty Ten Theme along with very few plugins. Can’t seem to make out what the reasons could be for not being able to approve a comment. Am not using any comment plugins, yet I will try deactivating them and see if that makes a difference.
