Managing blog comments

View and manage comments that are posted to your blog.

About this task

You can view all of the comments for your blog from a central location. If you are a blog owner and you checked the Moderate Comments setting for your blog, you can review and manage comments from the Comments page.
Note: In some organizations, the site administrator disables this application. In that case, the administrator must specifically assign you a moderator role for you to review and manage blog entries and comments.

Procedure

  1. Select the blog that you want to work with from the My Blogs page.
  2. Select Entries or Settings.
  3. Select Comments. All of the comments posted to the blog are listed, with information that includes author, status, and entry name. You can manage comments from this view.

    • Delete to permanently remove the comment.
