    We are currently using wordpress as an information tool, with no form for making comments. Somehow, someone was able to post 2 comments, that were luckily held for approval. I have since unchecked allow comments for our posts, but would like to know how this was possible. I want to be sure I have stopped this from happening again, and to do that I have to first understand how they did it.

    Thank you in advance.

    How were you blocking comments before using the blog-wide discussion-settings?

    If you were doing that on a post-by-post (or page) basis, then most likely someone forgot to turn comments (and pings) off.

    Some themes can be quirky in unexpected ways, so without being able to look at your site, I can’t experiment in a test blog… A link starting with http:// would be useful.

    You haven’t provided the complete URL for the blog in question starting with http:// and we cannot provide specific advice and correct answers without it. Will you please post it now?

    Sorry about that. The theme just doesn’t have a reply or comment form to leave a comment. Here is the URL. http://www.sunstreetcenters.org/wp/category/news/

    Thanks for posting the URL for the blog in question. That’s not a free blog from and being free hosted by wordpress.COM, so we cannot help you with it at all. The correct support forum for your software is here > http://wordpress.ORG/support/
