Aah, phooey… just this afternoon I finally upgraded from MT 2.65 to MT 3.15. One weekend and it’ll be obsolete.
I really like MT 3.15’s comment moderation feature. If someone posts a comment that looks like spam, MT can hold it for moderation — that is, the blog owner has to click a button to publish the comment.
Once students users approve a comment from a poster, other comments from that poster get approved automatically.
The only complaint I have is that comments awaiting moderation show up on a page that I created to show all comments across all blogs, a page which doesn’t seem to be rebuilding anyway. Hmm… that’s a bother, but I’ve been at it long enough today. Time to go home.
