Your comment is awaiting moderation – this shouldn´t be!

    Hi,
    in my private, user-login BuddyPress Community with groups, forums, activity-stream, I´m just integrating a blog, in which everyone should be able to create posts and comments, without having to wait for approvement!

    Here is my first problem:
    A participant can´t comment on an post, created by admin:
    “Your comment is awaiting moderation.”
    Even in the settings/discussion, “Allow people to post comments on new articles” is set!
    I also can´t find any other option, which could feed to this problem!

    Second:
    People should be able to create posts in the frontend, that it is not necessary, that they logg in into the wordpress-backend.
    Can anyone suggested a plugin for that?

    nice greetings and thousand thanks
    Sandra

    Hi Sandra,

    1. Check the “Before a Comment Appears” in the Discussion settings.

    2. Try AccessPress Anonymous Post.

    Hi Venutius,
    Before a comment appears: “Comment must be manually approved ”

    it was set correctly, already.

    Also this is set correctly
    “Allow people to post comments on new articles”

    But still, the comments needs to be approved!

    The plugin “AccessPress Anonymous Post.” is super, thanks a lot 🙂

    But I still have the comment-needs-approvement-problem!
    Could the reason be somewhere else in other settings, somewhere in the BuddyPress-System?

    No the comments are WordPress Territory, not BuddyPress, BuddyPress is extremely light in it’s handling of posts and comments and it does not have any moderation, WordPress handles that for comments.

    I think you probably need to take it back to basics and try deactivating all your plugins and see if it works. If it’s still a problem try a default theme like 2017. Hopefully it’s a plugin conflict that you can easily identify.

    thank you so much for the note, to deactivate the plugins.
    It was the “Akismet Anti-Spam” that caused the trouble.

    Now, I can comment as I want….
    Thousand thanks 🙂
    nice greetings Sandra

    That’s great, well, glad you found the culprit, Askimet should be seamless, only interfering with potential spam.

    by the way, can you recommend a good Search Plugin for a detailled profile search.
    I´m not satisfied with the one, that is running here: “BP Profile Search”

    nice greetings Sandra

    The only other free profile search I know of is BP Search, but that is only for looking up names, it does not search the other fields.

    I think the problem with BP Profile Search lies in the “is like” criteria, it never finds stuff that is even one letter out, so you have to wonder why have that optiion?
