    Currently all comments I receive on my hubs are set to be approved or denied before being published. I cannot find where I can disable it (or enable it later, if I want to).

      I can't find a hubwide tool, but you can edit the comment module itself. Mine are set to instant submission, not sure how that works.

        In the comment module it gives you the option "submit for moderation", but not the other way around. Yes, I'd like to find a hubwide tool.

          Not sure what you're getting. This is what mine looks like Moncrieff:

          That's a great suggestion, Moncrieff.  And, were you able to locate the form thooghun posted above?

            Yes, I saw this one, but it only gives you the option to check "Comments must be approved before they appear". I don't want that. I want them all appear without my approval, and no, that option doesn't appear checked in my hubs.

              Just uncheck the box, and comments will post without moderation.

                It is unchecked under all my hubs and yet I have to approve comments every time.

                  That's very strange, it's a pain to always moderate comments if you receive a lot of them.

                  Perhaps move this thread to Report a Problem forum.

    I guess you should find the settings in your account settings. (If I am not wrong about what you are really asking). Best of luck

    There's another spot that deals with notifications and comments and it's listed in your account setting under Profile --> Email Settings.  You'll want to check the settings there as they effect things globally in your account.

      No, it' not there either. That section deals with notifications... Still looking ))

    Finally! Today HP included a new box for global comment settings. Now it's easy. Thanks, HP.

    Um... I set automatic comment approval globally and yet I still have to approve them...

      Approved means you've looked at the comment and explicitly approved of it.  If you have it set for comments to appear immediately, comments will appear but that doesn't mean that they are "approved".  Their status will appear as "shown" on the Hub or under the status unmoderated on the my account comments page.  You don't actually have to approve comments if you are configured that way, you can just let them accumulate.

    Moncrieff: Just left a comment on your "Facebook Obtuse" Hub. It looks like it's up.

    LMK if you have to approve it. If not, I think I know why you had to approve new comments even though you selected global approval.
