    How to set up comment moderation on a blog? I don’t want people to be able to post offensive, commercial, or off topic comments. I’d like to be able to see and approve comments before they go live on the web.

    Hi momznite,

    It depends on what you’re using.

    I’ll assume WordPress. If so, it’s very easy to filter out spam and setup comment approval.

    – In your WordPress admin navigate to Plugins. You’ll need to activate the Akismet plugin that comes pre-installed with WordPress. In order for it to work you’ll need a WordPress API Key. You can get one for free here:

    – Now, to make sure comments are only posted after you’ve reviewed and approved them, from your WordPress admin go to Settings > Discussion, next to Before a comment appears make sure that An administrator must always approve the comment is checked and then save.

    If you’re using something different than WordPress let me know.

    Thanks, Bryan
