In my hubs I do allow comments. I have tried to set them so that I don't have to approve each and every one in the Global Comment Capsule Settings, however, I am am still having to approve each and every comment. Now approving them may be the way to go, as that way I don't miss any, however, I am concerned that at times comments may not appear for quite sometime if I am not online to approve them.
My settings on the Global Comment Capsule Settings are as follows:
Disable any further comments from being posted (N0)
Comments must be approved before they appear(N0)
Only signed-in users may post comments (Yes)
Display most recent comments first (No)
Any suggestions on what I may have wrong with these settings that is requiring an approval on all?
Note that the setting says "Comments must be approved before they [appear]". This setting means that the comments will all appear on your hubs without you approving them. This doesn't mean the comment's will get automatically approved.
With your current settings, it means that every single comment will appear on your hub regardless of whether or not you have approved them.
I hope this helps.
Thanks ezhang, for your response. The problem is, with my settings, they are not appearing on my hubs unless I approve them. When I go to check my comments I have the "approve" or "deny" option at the bottom. Once I click the "approve" then they appear on the hub.

What Would Happen if you didn't Approve a comment?Under new comments there is 2 buttons... APPROVE and SPAMBut what happens if you press neither? If nothing, then is the approve button really neccasary? or should it just be a default until you hit Spam?

Is there a setting that would allow me to approve all comments on hubs?

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 are already "Shown" so we don't need to after all.Can the (Approve)...

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).

Some comments I make on hubs are immediately unapproved - why?In two instances, I made a comment on a hub that didn't appear; it just said it had to be approved by the author first, and it thanked me for participating in the HubPages community. When I looked at my activity on my profile page, it...
