Support » Fixing WordPress » Please be patient…

  • I would like the “please be patient” remark in the WordPress comments to be reinserted, because all of my commenters think, that my commentfunction is out of order, when they don’t see their comment right away. You’ve got to tell them, that their comment is waiting for approval… but where do I write this? I mean, I’ve looked in the comments.php and… but where to put a notice like that?

  • Thanks!

    Oh, … ->Parse error: parse error, unexpected $ in /hotel/blangstrup_org/WWW/wp-comments.php on line 102
    Maybe I shouldn’t have used the whole citation?

    Ah, I should just paste this
    <?php
    if (0 != get_settings(‘comment_moderation’)) {
    ?>
    Please note: Comment moderation is currently enabled so there may be a delay between when you post your comment and when it shows up. Patience is a virtue; there’s no need to resubmit your comment.
    <?php
    } // comment_moderation != ‘none’
    ?>
    after this that’s there in the first place:
    <h2 id=”postcomment”><?php _e(“Leave a comment”); ?></h2>
    <?php if (‘open’ == $post->comment_status) { ?>
    Right? No errors now, and the notice is there now after “Leave a comment” 🙂

    Yes, I included a couple of extra lines just so you would know where to put it.

    Thanks again! That’s nice, now my guests will stop double-posting me! 🙂

    the note doesn’t stop people from double posting. i’ve had a comment moderation note since i started using wordpress a few months ago and commenters continue to post multiple times.

    True, it doesn’t stop them from double posting but it does keep those with a modicum of intelligence from submitting their comments more than onece 😉

    I’m sorry, I’m not exactly sure I understand where to put in the code. I’m using WP 1.2 and I don’t see clearly where this should go.

    If you look at the first couple of lines in my post:
    http://wordpress.org/support/3/7015#post-2
    You will see lines that should look similar to lines in wp-comments and wp-comments-popup.php. Add the remaining code there.

    After installing this and testing it out, I realized that this isn’t what I had originally been thinking of. Here the text is always present, but I was thinking more of an acknowledgment message that someone would only see (and clearly see) after posting a comment. Is that possible?

    I hate to bring old threads back from the dead, but I was in the area. This is what you’re looking for, http://txfx.net/2004/10/29/wordpress-hack-notify-users-of-moderation/
