10 years, 10 months ago
Apologies if this is too easy… i did look in the codex, but didnt find anything straight forward.
I would like comments auto-authorized – but i do want to make folks enter name + email. at the moment – the name and email are required, but it seems to leave the comments pending.
Under Options -> Discussions, the first set of check boxes (Usual settings for an article}, the 3rd (last) item,check Allow people to post comments on the article.
Below that, the 3 set of boxes (Before a comment appears) make sure that only Comment author must fill out name and e-mail is checked.
That should do it.
Great, thank you -turned out that i hade the next option checked too – that users who have been approved before can ppear…
