My comments aren’t appearing
This is happening to me too, and it is marking my stuff as spam. I de-spammed the comment in question (it was on my own blog) but can anyone offer an explanation as to why Askimet seems to have got the idea into its head that so many users are spam?
So what if it’s NOT Askimet?
I tried to leave a comment on my blog today, and yesterday too from a different IP. After reading entries above, I checked the Askimet, and it read (0).
Also, unlike the other entries above, my comments weren’t “accepted” before disappearing.
After I enter my name & email info (as if I am Joe Schmo who landed on the blog) and comment, it gives me a screen that says that the commenter has to be logged in to leave a comment.
I couldn’t find anything about that in the FAQ, perhaps b/c I’m an idiot. So, does a random person on the web who happens upon my blog, have to log in and set up an account in order to comment? The comment screen didn’t seem set up for that, so I’m a bit confused.
Help Please. Thanks
On the plus side, while logged in, I can comment w/o it going to spam. (Yeah!)
The blog linked to your username is not a wordpress.com hosted blog.
Are you referring to a wordpress.com hotsted blog?
If so please post the url for that blog.
Maybe….I have a feedburner posting the info on my website, but I don’t think that would interfere.
thanks for the comments
I’m also in the process of having my website host re-direct the blog page on the site to the true blog here at wordpress.com. But I don’t think that would interfere, either.
When I created the blog here at wordpress.com, I went thru the normal templates and options…I don’t know why…
TT: What do you mean when you say my “username” is not a wordpress.com hosted blog? you mean “NeemFirst”? Wierd.
ok…I’ll change the neemfirst username issue.
So…under Profile and Personal Options, it asks for a Website URL. I figured I’m supposed to put my website URL…not my blog URL. Am I wrong? Or would this need to be changed elsewhere instead?
The same happened to me some time ago but Askimet leaned quite fast…
thanks…I made the change and it still produced the same results. I also changed some discussion options, and no change. I’ve put a support ticket in.
My comments are neither in the spam queue, nor are they anywhere else. They just Disappear and it annoys me to find out that a whole essay length comment I typed perishes with a click and I can’t recover it.
Sigh… I am still apparently spam, despite no longer being considered spam on my own blog – when I try to leave comments on other people’s blogs, they don’t appear.
Dashboard -> Comments -> Akismet Spam
Go to your Akismet spam filter and open it. Then mark your comments “not spam”. After doing this several times Akismet will learn your comments are not spam. Get your friends to do the same with your comments on their blogs.
Tip 1: Never ever mark a comment you do not agree with as spam just delete it if you do not wish to post it.
Tip2: Either post a link to your blog when you post to the forum or link your username to your blog
You’re welcome. Happy blogging. :)
P.S. You linked your blog to your username – cool. And your blog looks cool too. :)
Especially for telling me how to link it in the first place! :)
You’re most welcome. As you are new to wordpress, I believe the information at the links found in this Beginner’s Guide may be useful to you https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic.php?id=11280
That’s awesome! Thanks!
