Under Options >> General
I have 'Anyone can register' & 'Users must be registered and logged in to comment' ticked.
Under Options>> Discussions
I have all the 3 settings ticked for "Usual settings for an article."
And I have "Before a comment appears:
1. An administrator must approve the comment (regardless of any matches below)
2. Comment author must fill out name and e-mail
3. Comment author must have a previously approved comment
I had all three on when a user of level 01 wrote an article. I approved it and it was pasted. The 1st comment by the authour to the article was left to moderation, and i moderated it. The 2nd and third went without modertion due to the settings i had.
But then I unchecked "Comment author must have a previously approved comment" and "Comment author must fill out name and e-mail". The user can still by pass moderation.
Is there anyway to overcome this?
