Is there any way to block anonymous comments?

    I was just curious if there is a way to stop people from being able to comment on blogs anonymously, without having to moderate each comment individually.

    Thank you for any and all help!

  2. Assuming that your blog is hosted here on WordPress.com, please read this:

    http://support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/

    What you are looking for is #1 in the "Other comment settings".

  3. In Settings > Discussion http://support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/ you can ask for (among other things):

    1 Comment author must fill out name and e-mail
    but that could be fake
    or
    2 Users must be registered and logged in to comment
    but then people must register at wordpress.com first
    or
    3 Comment author must have a previously approved comment
    which holds only new commenters but allows approved commenters to post freely

    You probably want to activate #1 and #3

  4. G'day Jennifer! I should have refreshed first...

  5. /g'morning Husdal! Coffee?

  6. Thanks, but I already had two sizable mugs...I'll better have a third one before doing more work here...
