    Hi:

    Every comment the blog has, goes to my email to approve... why ?

    In Options -> Discussion
    -> "Allow people to post comments on the article" is CHECKED
    -> "An administrator must approve the comment (regardless of any matches below)" is UNCHECKED

    In every post i write "Allow comments" is CHECKED

    what is wrong ?

    Check the max. number of links for comments to get moderated. It should not be set to zero, because then every comment has to be moderated (as far as I understood it).

    Is there any spam-plugin installed and activated ?

    Maybe a look into the following page might help:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Combating_Comment_Spam

    It's a description on how to get rid of Sspam, but there's also one topic "Why is every comment going into the moderation queue?". Maybe it helps.

    I have read carefully
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Combating_Comment_Spam/FAQ#Why_is_every_comment_going_into_the_moderation_queue.3F

    - I have NO characters in SpamBox
    - The number of links is 2
    - "Allow people to post comments on the article" is CHECKED
    - "An administrator must approve the comment (regardless of any matches below)" is UNCHECKED

    and i get all the comments in awaiting approval :P

    help!

    These plugins shouldn't have sideeffects on the comments, but to make it sure: Try deactivating all of them and then have a look at the comment problem.

    If that won't work, have a look into the database, if the options are set there correctly (maybe a strange caching problem).

    You say that you have no characters in the moderation list, but check it very carefully for "invisible" characters. A blank line or single space tends to be the most frequent cause of this problem.

    It's completely empty... it's the first thing I saw...

    Anyway, except the blog name, blog url and directories, the options tables of 2 blogs are exactly the same !!!

    One have all comments unmoderated
    And I have to eat with 'em! :P
