  • Resolved alism


    Please help!

    I’m currently having to approve every comment made on my blog. Ideally, I’d like to only moderate the first comment made by each person.

    On the Options > Discussion page, I have the following settings ticked:

    Usual settings for an article:
    X – Attempt to notify any blogs linked to from the article (slows down posting.)
    X – Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.)
    X – Allow people to post comments on the article

    E-mail me whenever:
    X – Anyone posts a comment
    X – A comment is held for moderation

    Before a comment appears:
    X – Comment author must fill out name and e-mail
    X – Comment author must have a previously approved comment

    The only one left UNticked is:
    Before a comment appears:
    O – An administrator must always approve the comment

    What am I doing wrong? I don’t have any plugins installed.

  • No plugins, No changes in WP core files? Hmm, what’s in your comment moderation keyword list?

    I’m a bit late following this up… but I forgot to post the solution! Should anyone have the same problem though…

    On the Discussion page, in the section that says:
    “Hold a comment in the queue if it contains [X] or more links. (A common characteristic of comment spam is a large number of hyperlinks.)”

    I’d stupidly put “0”, so every comment was having to be moderated. Doh!
