    how does one completely turn it off? i've tried everything in discussion, options -- such as unchecking An administrator must approve the comment (regardless of any matches below), Comment author must fill out name and e-mail, Comment author must have a previously approved comment, also i have blanked out both boxes for Comment Moderation.

    please help, thanks. :)

    Make sure that the link moderation value is set higher than zero. Also, try disabling any and all anti-spam or comment-related plugins.

    thanks for the quick reply, macmanx.

    where does one disable any/all antispam and comment plugins or find out where they are?

    ah, i spoke too soon. i found the plugin option in wp-admin and only the default plugins are present and all have not been activated yet.

    i set the link value to 99, hopefully that should do it. :)

    If you gave us a link, we could test it for you.

    No need, macmanx.

    It worked like a charm.

    Thank you so much. :)

    I do hope that in future version of WP one is given a choice just completely disable comment moderation if they wish. :)
