andI am moderating comments, yet I find some comments being published without my input.
andI deleted the comments, and now I can't get them back!
These reports may be from folks who are not observing what queue they are looking at, or what the buttons do, in the Comments wizard.All of the comments to my blog are going straight to Spam.
The Comments wizard has been moved from a small link in the Post Editor display, to a dashboard page. We now have "Edit Posts", "Comments", "Settings", "Design", "Monetize", and "Stats" - in that order, for the dashboard pages.
Under the Comments page, we have 3 tabs - "Published", "Awaiting Moderation", and "Spam". Each tab has its own unique set of buttons, for moving the comments selected to another queue.
- Remove Content
- Awaiting Moderation
- Not Spam
When you are moderating the comments on your blog, occasionally take a second - look at the tab heading, and make sure that you're in the right queue. Doing that may occasionally save you some confusion, or worse embarrassment.
