Accepting Comments

Your site is set up to be able to receive comments on your posts and pages.

If you would like to disable/enable this feature, follow these instructions.

1. Go to the top of your screen while in the window you input the new post/page.  Make sure you are scrolled to the top of the page and look to the right.  Click the ‘Screen Options’ button.  Make sure that the ‘Discussion’ box is ticked.

2. After each post/page you will then have the choice to allow comments (tick the box under where you enter the text), it should say ‘allow comments’, also tick the one that says ‘allow pingbacks.’  These should be automatically ticked for you.

To accept a comment, you will receive an email notification advising you someone has left one, simply follow the links and accept.  Once you accept a comment from someone for the first time, you no longer have to do it again and they are automatically authorised.   It is possible to change this setting if someone starts leaving untold abuse etc.

If you find yourself receiving many comments from people you don’t recognise, then no matter how genuine it looks, it is usually a spam bot.  Be sure to see the post about Spam Protection.
