We’re kicking off a new series of blog posts that will reveiw some of our features that you might not know about. The first post in this series will review our moderation and blacklisting settings. Our moderation page is going through a redesign right now, but this will get you off the ground and familiar with our current settings.
Moderation & Blacklisting Filters
IntenseDebate offers some truly hardcore moderation and blacklisting settings. Get the most out of our service and let us do the work of weeding out comments that are out-of-line with our automatic filters. You can automagically hold comments for your approval or have them deleted by:
- Number of links in the comment
- Email address of the commenter
- IP address
Enabling these settings is easy. Just login to your account and select the “Settings” tab. You’ll find several text boxes on the left side of the page where you can enter in all of the above info. Make sure you separate your entries with spaces only! You can access the IP addresses in your comment notification emails.
Comment Posting Settings
We offer some additional comment posting settings to help you weed out the rubbish. With IntenseDebate you can require:
- All commenters to signup with IntenseDebate before posting*
- Commenters must have a previously approved comment*
- All comments are held for moderation before they are displayed*
- Or none of the above! (default setting)
*Disabled by default
Don’t forget about our Akismet integration! Your IntenseDebate account provides you with the option to run all comments through our cusotm Akismet integration. You can enable Akismet filtering in your Settings panel.
