      You can set your preferences in the Comments capsule.

      The default is that they will appear, but you'll be notified so you can approve or delete them.

      Personally I like that option best, because people can get frustrated if their comment disappears as soon as they've posted it! I might set it on the "moderate first" option if I was writing something particularly controversial, though.

      They show up once they are posted or so it seems to be the case for me. But you can always deny comments.

    Unless I did something different, all comments have to be approved by you before they go live on your Hub.

    Good luck with Hubpages!

    Thanks everyone. But unfortunately i have more problems to contend with than that now!

    What do you guys say about this?? When i am trying to write an article, i start off filling out the form that they give me when i click 'Start New Hub' by puting in the title for my article. I try to fill out the fields, and then click 'continue.' Fair enough right? Well, before i even get to type in any content, they go and PUBLISH my empty article, and write in my account that my article is in danger of being flagged for lack of content! Why are they publishing my article when i never clicked 'publish'??? What can i do?

    Something must be wrong with your keyboard...

    You can edit the Comment Capsule so comments must be approved before publishing. You can also be notified when each comment is submitted.

    As for an article publishing before you've done anything, there must be a glitch. Try again. If the problem persists contact the team at hubpages.com and let them know about it, as well as what browser and version you're using.

    I agree it would be worth reporting your problem - but remember you can always edit a published Hub, as many times as you like.

    Or you can "unpublish" it, then edit it.
