'Guest Blogger' and Comment Moderation (4 posts)

    I will be going out of town for a couple of weeks and will be handing the keys of the blog over to four guest bloggers. I have/will create user accounts for them.
    I also use comment moderation.
    My questions are:
    1) What user level do the other authors need to be to be able to moderate, post, edit and delete their own posts?
    2) Where do the comment notifications go when using multiple users? Always to the admin or to the posting author or both?
    3) Is there some sort of Captcha/Glyph type system/plugin that I could use instead of moderation so I'm not asking so much from my guest bloggers?

    1) Level 1
    2) Comment notification always goes to the admin even if the comment is on a post not made by the admin.
    3) There is a comment moderation by e-mail authentication plugin, but I've never gotten it to work. Check on Wiki.

    I wrote the comment authorization by email plugin. What problems have you had with it?

    Heh, it wouldn't work. Not sure what the problem was before, but I do know now (re-downloaded from your site). I had to modify the moderation.php file and change references for siteurl to home to allow me to use it with the alternative installation setup (index.php in a different directory than WP).
    Also, while this doesn't seem a problem at first, there isn't any user-friendly handling for comments that have already been approved. Say, I click the link in my e-mail, get it approved. I go back and click it again and I get an error. Now sure how to set a check to see if the comment has already been approved, I'll leave that up to you :)
