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.

Do you approve all comments on your hubs, even if every third word is a swear word? I'm just wondering if it's normal to do so or if it's normal to just delete it.

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....
