I thought I remembered seeing a setting somewhere for comments to NOT display until approved, but now I can't recall where I saw that...provided I was not hallucinating...
Edit your hub, then edit the comments capsule. There is a checkoff box there.
ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh............ so it is not global, but hub-by-hub???
Grrr...that's inefficient! HP, are you listening??

I got a message to check my comments and was sent to my Tom Dooley hub and I cannot see any comments there although there should be some!How can this be my problem? I have nothing to do with whether comments are showing...

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...
