Comment Moderation

Apr 24, 2010 at 5:26 AM

Hi, can I just check whether it is possible to enable comment moderation on BlogEngine. If so, how will I be notified when there are new comments due for approval, and how do i go about approving the comments? I'm currently using BlogEngine.Net 1.5.0.7.

Another thing I'll like to ask is whether it would be possible to retain comments, but remove the links to other websites in that particular comment? I've been getting quite a bit of spam on my blog.

Thanks!

Yes, BE 1.5 has the option to moderate comments.  It can be turned on on the Settings tab in the control panel.

There's an extension named 'SendCommentMail' that is turned on by default.  This extension will send the blog owner an email whenever a new comment is posted.

For BE 1.5, you can install Commentor which will allow you to edit comments:

If on BE 1.6, editing comments is already built in.
