We love giving our authors more control over comment section to make sure we create a friendly and safe environment without any trolls, spammers or nasty comments.
With our new update every author can now easily moderate comments under their own articles, meaning that you'll be able to:
- Trash comments;
- Trash comments and ban spammers by IP;
- Allow users to post comments without moderation;
- Moderate flagged comments via email;
Furthermore when a comment is flagged by our community comment author will see a message that their comment is awaiting moderation:
When this happens the author of the article will receive an email that invites them to approve or trash the comment.
Just click Approve, Trash or Spam. This will open an email that looks like this:
All you have to do is click Send the comment will be approved (or trashed and marked as spam, depending on what you decide).
You can also moderate comments by going to the comment section of any particular article that you've published on The Open Mic.
You'll see a set of options allowing you to easily moderate comments.
We're hoping this will make comment moderation easy and fun for all our awesome writers! :)
