5 Settings for Managing Commenters in Quick Blogcast
Quick Blogcast® lets you give different permissions to commenters. You can find these settings in Quick Blogcast by going to the Manage Blog menu, and then selecting Settings. From the Discussions tab, you can control comments by applying these permissions:
- Allow anonymous comments (Check/Uncheck) — Commenters don’t have to leave their name and email address to comment on your posts. This makes it quick for commenters, but all you may see is their comment and the IP address of the commenter. The commenter displays as Anonymous.
- Moderate all comments (Yes/No) — When you select this, comments remain in Pending status and display on your blog only when you manually approve them. However, you can create “whitelists” on the Manage Commenters page to choose which visitors can post comments without any further approval. You can also create a “blacklist” on the Blacklist page to designate keywords, IPs, email addresses and URLs that mark comments as spam.
- Email new comments (Check/Uncheck) — You receive an email notification when someone posts a comment. You can read the comment, reply or take other actions, such as approving it or marking it as spam.
- Allow HTML in comments (Check/Uncheck) — HTML tags commenters enter save and display. There still may be filtering of some tags and attributes, but most HTML tags are allowed.
- Enable the “nofollow” tag in comment links (Check/Uncheck) — This one depends on the Allow HTML in comments setting. If you allow HTML tags in your comments and select this setting, the “nofollow” attribute applies to any href links in user-submitted comments. It reduces the effectiveness of certain types of spam.
