    I’m trying to figure out how to make it easy, but also SAFE, for people to comment on whatever I post to my page. If anyone has advice for how all the various settings should be used, kindly let me know. Having gone through them a couple times already, I find many of them confusing and, to be honest, don’t understand a lot of them. Thank you. P.S. Kindly note my blog is primarily promotional, as it concerns my books. Thus while I do need to “engage” a target audience, I also do not want to have to deal with endless discussions or debates, as I simply do not have time for such. I also want to try an protect from receiving comments that are actually spam or merely “trolls”.

    Dashboard >> Settings >> Discussion >> Require all comments to be moderated –

    More work for you but nothing slips past you – others use Must have an approved comment – I use All comments must be moderated on my site and others that I admin – depends on how many comments you have a day

    Thank you! Will I be notified automatically when such a comment requiring moderation is posted by a user, or do I need to go someone periodically to check on that? Also, should I restrict those who can post to registered, signed-in WordPress users?

    Sorry, disregard! I found the feature allowing for me to be informed by email when a comment has been held up for moderation.

    I let anyone comment on my site – nobody needs to be logged into anything – also don’t require an email address – but the field is there if they want

    You be welcome & good luck
