I didn't realise comments didn't auto-approve until I just checked a thread and found about 20 from months back. Oops!
How can I set all comments to auto-approve to save me from clicking "approve" hundreds of times?
There is no way to automatically approve comments. However, it has no practical significance. Comments are set to appear immediately by default. Therefore, approving comments only becomes significant if you manually have set a comments capsule so that comments must be approved before they will appear.
Hi Victoria, you can change the comments capsule settings by going to the hub clicking edit and then clicking edit on the comments capsule.
These days there are lot of spammers dropping links to their sites. I think you shouldn't enable auto-approval, Victoria. Just a suggestion
Auto-approval does not exist as a feature on HubPages, as far as I can tell.
The default setting is that comments will appear even before they have been approved, but that is very different from auto-approval.
I think that the comments part of the hubs is often part of the fun. By ignoring comments, you may be cheating yourself. It is the the give and take you experience regarding your hub. True, some of the comments are fly-bys or spam, but most are interesting and take a lot of time by the person leaving the comment.
If you are just getting caught up, you can click on the comments in 'my account' and quickly go down the list approving them. Once your are caught up, then consider them a form of interaction about your hub.

A visitor to one of my hubs left a long, passionate, and relatively well-written comment..But he threw in some f-bombs.. Should I approve it?Will Google penalize me for allowing comments with some profanity?

Someone left a good comment on my Hub and also dropped a link to their site. The site is right on point with the subject and looks like quality. I would like to approve it, just wondering how Google sees it, whether...

I recently noticed that some (just a very few and not all) comments on the Q&A section require approval. Also, this does something a bit odd to my comment dashboard. It hides the newest and as yet unapproved...

A very minor issue: all our comments have been transferred over (yay), but each one has the following buttons and text:(Approve) (Deny) Status: Shown. It looks like we need to approve all our comments again, yet they...
