Just learned that commenters have to be signed in or sign up in order to leave a comment on any hub.
How is this going to help ???????? Who is going to bother to do this???? NOBODY!
People are commenting on mine without logging in. I have one only and I realized you can control if a guest can comment or not. Now I am going to change that one too. I have a couple friends who want to comment.
I have some friends who commented on my hubs from social media sites instead since they are not hubpages member.
I''m having the same problem with almost all the niche sites despite being repeatedly told as long as I'm signed into HP it isn't a problem. If I try to use my HP sign in info on a niche site it doesn't work but being signed into HP also doesn't work. So I just enter my name and write a comment regardless of it logging me as a guest. Good luck.
Both of you are doing something wrong and missing the point. The username and password you use for HubPages also works for all the niche site.
In addition, it's not true that one needs to be logged in or have an account to leave comments unless the author specified that in the settings. You must have run into one of those Hubber's hubs. It's a choice each Hubber makes – if they want to allow anyone to comment or just other Hubbers.
By the way, when you moderate and respond to comment, you don't even need to go to the individual hubs. You do it all from one place under your global comments page.
I neither set it Yes or No. Does it affect those unsigned viewers?
Important information. As a relative newbie, I've been unaware that comments were restricted to registered Hubbers. May partially explain why I've received only a single comment on my first hub thus far (not including a follow-up comment from the same person).
A couple of related Qs:
1. Does this same restriction apply to voting in a hub's poll capsule? May only registered Hubbers vote?
2. Terrielynn, are you saying that a Hubber can turn on the ability for anyone to comment on his/her hubs?
The settings are here: http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/comments
I think the default is to allow outside commenters.

Is it only me, or are there others who think that it should be a common courtesy to reply to comments made to a hub. I always reply to comments made by my followers and others, and people who I follow do the same. I...

I've only written a handful of Hubs so far, and I knew that I would encounter this issue due to the nature of my writing. I have one Hubber who continues to post personal insults in the comments of all of my...

I'd like to suggest that hubbers have some way, short of deleting an entire comment, of deleting unwanted links in the comments of others.It is not unusual at all (fairly common, in fact) to see otherwise worthwhile and...

I originally had my hub comment settings set to allow anyone to comment. After getting hateful comments from unregistered users badmouthing me and my friend who comments on my hubs I changed the settings to allow only...

If I view my account's Comments page, it's easy to view, approve and respond to unapproved comments. However, if I go to a new comment in one of my hubs and click Approve, I cannot reply to it directly on the comment....
