Support » Fixing WordPress » My database is setting my comments as spam

  • When I tested my comments they didn’t show up. When I checked my db in phpadmin it showed my comment there, set as spam (under comment_approved).

    I can manually change that and the comment will show up, but I need to find out how to stop it from setting my comment as spam.

    Any help from anyone?

    Check you Comment Blacklist (not the moderation list) for blank lines, punctuation marks, and single letters.

    And look at the “Comment author must have a previously approved comment” in “Before a comment appears”

    Ok, I checked all the stuff above and didn’t have anything other than the dot in the (don’t want to put their name in case it gets them googled or something). Am I allowed to put the dot in the .com or does that screw it up?

    I also unchecked the “blacklist comments from open and unsecure proxies” and then it seemed to work. Is that the answer?
