    Hey, I need help. One of my websites is receiving a lot of spam comments. I have activated Akismet and in the settings I indicated that comments should be manually approved. However, my website keeps on receiving spam comments from wherever and they keep on getting approved automatically!

    What would I do in order for me to stop the comments from getting automatically approved?

    You can stop comments from being automatically approved by going to Settings -> Discussion -> Before a Comment Appears and check "Comment must be manually approved" In fact I think the Discussion section has several options that might be useful. It also wouldn't hurt to include another anti-spam plugin. I use Askimet and Clean Talk.

    Thanks. But as I stated, I have Akismet too but it fails to stop spam comments. It does identify the spam comments but they still get automatically approved. I have also adjusted the discussion settings and have set it to "manually approve" as I stated above. However, they still appear on my posts. :(
