WordPress: Adjusting Comment Moderation Settings

WordPress blogs can support comment moderation, which allows instructors the ability to manually approve user comments on blog posts before they become live / available for all users who have access to the blog site to see. This article will review how to adjust the comment moderation settings for a WordPress blog site.

  1. Navigate to your Wordpress course blog Dashboard page and click the "Settings" option in the left-hand global navigation menu.
  2. From the "Settings" sub-menu, select the "Discussion" option.
  3. Scroll down to the "Before A Comment Appears" section and select to either enable or disable the "Comment must be manually approve" option.
  4. When done, click the "Save Changes" button.
