Managing comments

Just a reminder that you can manually manage which comments are allowed on your blog. You don’t have to approve the comments I leave if you don’t want to, since I’ll be commenting in a grading capacity. However, you do have to approve the comments from your classmates so I can give them credit for their comments.

Here’s how to manage comments. In your WordPress dashboard, go to Settings in the left column. Then click on Discussion.

From the Discussion page, scroll down until you see Before a comment appears. Deselect “comment author must have previously approved comments” and select “comment must be manually approved.”

This will allow to you decide what comments you want to appear on your blog. You aren’t required to do this, but it’s an option for those of you who don’t want my comments appearing.
