I have setup the comment moderation to require an admin to approve all comments. But if I am logged in as the author of a post, and make a comment on that post - it is getting automatically approved.
This is for a specialized site, where we have users that are set with the Role of Contributor and assigned as authors to (1) unique custom post type, which acts as a business listing. They can then comment and interact with customers, and we highlight their comments as the author. But, they aren't allowed to solicit business away from the site, so we need to moderate their comments and make sure they aren't sneaking in website links or phone numbers and emails.
Shouldn't setting the "An Administrator must always approve a comment" ensure that all comments have to be moderated? What could be overriding this?
We were set to go live on Monday, and I did some last testing just to be safe and discovered this problem - so we're a little desperate.
