Registered users do not require comment moderation (4 posts)

    I'm looking for a plug-in that will allow a registered user (subscriber through author) to post comments while logged in without requiring comment moderation. If not logged in, comments require moderation.

    As far as I can tell, there are no settings that expressly permit registered subscribers (only) to comment freely.

    Your ideas and help are appreciated

    Something like this should work. Drop it in your theme's functions.php file:

    add_action( 'preprocess_comment', 'my_check_comment', 1 );
    function my_check_comment( $commentdata ) {
    	/* Get the user ID of the comment author. */
    	$user_id = absint( $commentdata['user_ID'] );
    	/* If comment author is a registered user, approve the comment. */
    	if ( 0 < $user_id )
    		add_filter( 'pre_comment_approved', 'my_approve_comment' );
    		add_filter( 'pre_comment_approved', 'my_moderate_comment' );
    	return $commentdata;
    function my_approve_comment( $approved ) {
    	$approved = 1;
    	return $approved;
    function my_moderate_comment( $approved ) {
    	if ( 'spam' !== $approved )
    		$approved = 0;
    	return $approved;
