New Add-on: Approve Author Comments

We love it when you share your feedback and ideas with us – when we heard from one of our users who’d noticed a commenting loophole on PrimaryBlogger, we got straight on with trying to find a solution.

It came to light that even when Moderate Comments is turned on, if an author or contributor comments on their own posts, there’s a WordPress loophole that allows the comment to bypass the Moderation Queue and publish straight on the site. Our user was concerned about this and wanted a way to force all comments, without exception, to be moderated.

The issue was raised with our fantastic Development Team who got to work on a new add-on. Within a matter of days the new add-on was ready for testing and it’s now been made available on the PrimaryBlogger Pro accounts. The add-on, named Approve Author Comments, adds an additional tick box to the discussion page, which allows an administrator to force author and contributor comments on their own posts to need approval.

Pretty good eh? We know how important it is to you to have control over comments for safety reasons and hope that you’ll find this extra little feature very handy! Don’t forget to let us know if you have anything in mind that you would like to see on PrimaryBlogger. Happy blogging!

Don’t forget you can notify us of any problems or ideas here or tweet us @PrimaryBloggger.
