Allow comments on your blog

15 June, 2007 17:59  EasyExpat EasyExpat

You can always allow automatically comments on the blog by logging into the Admin area ->Control Center->Blog setting and change it to put:

Enable comments for all posts by default. Comments can still be enabled/disabled for certain posts when creating new posts or editing old ones.
Notification of new comments.
Or you can do that on each article you put on your blog by editing the article and looking at the right hand side column where you can allow column and get notifications so you know when new colums have been posted.
I remind you also that in order to prevent spams, you can read:
If you receive spams, you can always untick Enable comments in your articles at a later stage, and spammers won't be able to post new comments anymore. This is a very strong method, and instead you may prefer to Moderate the comments, so displaying only comments that you validate before.

After months trying to migrate to an other server, we eventually (cross fingers) made it working on a new machine... We appologize for all the inconvenience and issues it might have caused.

It did not only affect BlogExpat but also all the services provided by ExpatGroup.

Hopefully everything is back to normal now ...with improvement even such as more security against spams for your blogs (you can see the AuthImage at the bottom of the comment form) ... :-)

Plugin badbehavior
It prevents spambots from accessing your site by analyzing their actual HTTP requests and comparing them to profiles from known spambots. It goes far beyond User-Agent and Referer, however.

It is activated by default on your blog.

Plugin akismet

Akismet checks your comments and trackbacks against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not. (More)
