CODEX info – Moderate all comments
CODEX info – Inform Users When Comments are Moderated
Inform Users When Comments are Moderated
When people submit comments, they expect them to appear on your blog immediately. Implementing comment moderation and not telling people will almost certainly result in some people repeatedly submitting the same comment as they think it has disappeared. To prevent this from happening, and to avoid disgruntled and confused readers, inform people that their comment is under review by doing the following:
If you use popup comments, edit comments-popup.php and if you do not, edit comments.php.
Look for the following code:
<p> <input name="submit" type="submit" tabindex="5" value="<?php _e("Say it!"); ?>" /> </p>
Change that to the following, adding your own customization:
<p> <blockquote> Comment moderation is in use. Please do not submit your comment twice -- it will appear shortly. </blockquote> <input name="submit" type="submit" tabindex="5" value="<?php _e("Say it!"); ?>" /> </p>
TESTED -&- CONFIRMED;- (The comments are still working)
