The blog I need help with is reasonablehope.wordpress.com. October 30, 2009 at 8:22 pm #415290 thesacredpathStaff At settings > discussion set it so that all comments have to be approved: http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/ . October 30, 2009 at 8:41 pm #415296 christinehunt4reasonablehopeMember I had already checked the box requiring administrator to approve, but the Comment still showed on the page. October 30, 2009 at 8:45 pm #415298 thesacredpathStaff Check that page again. Under “before a comment appears” this should be checked: An administrator must always approve the comment This should NOT be checked: Comment author must have a previously approved comment October 31, 2009 at 12:33 am #415330 christinehunt4reasonablehopeMember Yep, that’s what I figured it should be, but the Comment still appears on the blog page. Any other thoughts? October 31, 2009 at 1:07 am #415338 thesacredpathStaff I just left a comment on your most recent post, and when I submitted it it says, “Please Note: Your comment is awaiting moderation.” It works just fine as far as I can see. October 31, 2009 at 1:11 am #415339 timethiefMember I left a test comment too. “Please Note: Your comment is awaiting moderation.” Situation resolved.
