I'm in the process of setting up a blog at http://mabelfigworthy.co.uk/fof/. As I want to moderate all comments before they are published, in Discussion Settings I've checked:
Before a comment appears: An administrator must always approve the comment
Comment author must have a previously approved comment
I've tried ticking only the first, only the second, and both. But whatever combination I choose, my test comments are published immediately. They don't go Pending, and I don't get a notification that there is a comment.
Could this be because so far, I am the only one posting comments and it recognises me as being the Administrator? If so, do I need to create a separate user in order to test my comment settings?
