What is a Comment?

In WordPress your visitors have the option to leave comments on your site. This feature creates a dynamic interchange between you and the blogs readers. Comments can be left only on posts and are a handy way for people to leave thier opinions on your postings. A comment has to be approved by a moderator before it can appear for viewing.

Creating a Comment

Creating comments is a simple process. First navigate to the post that you wish to comment on, then fill in the required information in the boxes underneath the post and click the submit button, as shown below. The comment will then be marked for review by the moderator and will appear when its contents have been checked and approved.


Modertating Comments

Before a comment can be viewed it has to br approved by a moderator. The moderator should check the the comment for apporpriate content and change it if necessary. To moderate a comment first login to the blog dashboard, as documented here here

If there is a comment or multiple comments awaiting moderation the dashboard will list how many comments are awaiting moderation.


When you click the comment link you will be taken to the Manage Comments section. From here you can select the comment(s) that require moderation, as shown below.


Now two options exist. You can either approve the comment without moderation or choose to edit the comment. To apporove the comment without moderation simply click the tick box beside the comment and hit the approve button, as shown below.
