Blogs are created with a default set of controls on comments. The blog owner can change the settings, including restricting access to NetID-holders only, forcing all comments through moderation, or disabling comments entirely. Akismet provides a layer of spam protection for comments.
Blog owners can view and change settings via the blog's Dashboard. Choose the Settings control, then "Discussion"
- Comments may be posted on new articles (blog posts)
- To comment the author must enter a name and email address
- Only the first comment by an author will be held for moderation
- Blog owners will be emailed whenever there is any comment posted, and when there is a comment held for moderation
More restrictive policies can be established by the blog owner.
