I ran a test and posted a comment on my website. When I went to the back office it said that there were no comments pending approval. This option was ticked in my settings - I had to approve it before it would appear. I went to check the following day and still nothing.

Any help, please.

Thanks, Brian

Maybe its because it is you doing it. If you give me your website I can leave you a comment and we can see if that works.

Hi Melissa, thanks for getting back to me. the site is www.thelegitimateaffiliate.com . It's still in the building period so I'm testing links, posts, etc.

Thanks again for your help. Perhaps you can let me know once you've posted then I'll know to contact support if nothing shows up on the site.

Regards,

Brian

Wow Melissa. What do you know? It's just come through as pending approval. Thanks so much for testing this for me.

Have a lovely day further.

You are welcome I am not a hundred percent sure but I wonder if it wouldn't allow your own self to comment unless you are replying to another one. But I am glad it worked.

Hi John, good to hear from you. I was just working through your site yesterday and reading some of your posts. You are a busy man. So glad I signed up through you. I'll need to stay in contact with you more regularly. Anyway, the site is www.thelegitimateaffiliate.com . I'll let you know if I get a post from you.
PS - can you comment on what I need to pay attention to on the site. It's still very early days for me.

Thanks,

Brian

Alright I left you a comment so let me know if that went through. Your site is off to a great start so just don't take your foot off the gas pedal and you will be on your way to doing exactly like I am. As far as what you need to pay attention to, there isn't much besides posting regularly and getting involved in your niche. Keep learning and remember that this is an actual business so you need to treat it like one. Your domain name is flat out awesome and your content is pretty damn good for your first posts. Definitely off to a superb start man so keep up the great work!

Hi John, thanks for checking this out for me. Grateful for your input and contribution to the comments. This came through as pending approval with no problem. Not sure what the glitch was but it seems to be sorted. I'll stay in touch to run things by you and get your feedback if that's okay.

Also check your spam folder on your email service.

Although you should also see it on your WP dashboard, in the comments section anyway.

Check the settings -> Discussion settings.

Go thru each of these settings. Some don't apply but others do.
Check comment moderation settings and the comment blacklist values, just in case something there prevented it from going through.

Hi Dynamic David! Hope you are having a good day. Melissa kindly posted a comment as a test for me and what do you know? It came through. I think yesterday was just a bad day all round. Couldn't upload images, couldn't complete the updates on WordPress. Oh Boo-hoo! Today is much better.

Thanks again for your reply.

Cool. Great to hear that it is resolved.

As a side note, if I could not upload images or complete updates on WordPress, I think that my pc or network connection is 'slow', I just simply reboot my pc and reboot my router.... Sometimes it helps.

Hey Brian,

If your website is hosted here at WA, then I recommend that you contact SiteSupport explaining your issue in as much detail as you can, so they can help you correct this issue faster.

Hi Trish, I'm working through some alternatives to see if I've missed a piece of the puzzle along the way. Once I've exhausted all the options I'll have to contact support.

Thanks,

Brian
