**** Update: the problem that I described below on 2/20/2012 is fixed and I actually understand how to do it. THANK you to every blogger who commented and emailed and talked me through it. When I tell people WP has the most amazing community of bloggers EVER….I can now also add how you saved me from drowning in techno-waters…thank you so much.
Ok I have been messing around with my dashboard. I changed it to accepting comments without moderation. But then I lost track of who had commented where and had to search multiple pages in the event there were comments. I would reply on the comments page, but they were no longer landing on the post page. So I replied on the comment page and then also had to comment on the post page.
So I changed it again. Now I have it back at moderation status. so here is my question…if you try to comment on this is that what is happening? Will it at least accept your comment but tell you it is held for moderation? Seeking advice as to how to be sure not to overlook comments and yet make it hassle free for you to comment…Of course if it won’t let you comment I am hoping it will let you go to my gravatar and email me….. Advice?
