If you use WordPress for blogging like I do you are hoping that people will comment on your blog. Another important question to ask is “Should you moderate the comments on your blog?” I personally moderate all my comments by using the settings in WordPress and today that’s exactly what I am going to show you how to step in a few easy steps…
Step 1: Login to your WordPress website and go to the “Settings” section and click on the “Discussion” link as seen below
Step 2: Check the “A comment is held for moderation” and “Comment author must have a previously approved comment” checkbox just like below. What this will do is once you’ve approved one comment from a visitor you won’t need to approve each additional comment they make ever again
What this will do is put comments into a queue where they are moderated and they will not be published until they are approved by you. There are a host of options for managing discussions and moderating comments in WordPress in the “Discussion” option so have a look around here and I am sure you will find a way to manage your comments.
