Ich habe eine Frage.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with German or Google, that means “I have a question.”  Hopefully some of you veteran WordPressers can answer it.  Is there a way to set up the blog so that anyone can comment and I won’t have to approve them all manually?  And if there is, should I do it, or is that an open invitation for spammers?

    Yes, there is a way; yes, you will get spammers, but you’ll get those anyway; WordPress.com should automatically have a spam filter called Akismet set up for you.

    Okay, so how do I do it? I tried searching the WordPress help topics, but I didn’t find what I was looking for.

    Down the left-hand menu of your dashboard, click Settings, then click Discussion, and you should see everything you want. Nice pic of the gumball machine btw.

    Looks like you are currently set to “commenter must have a previously approved comment,” which is not a totally bad way–you don’t have to approve everything. But you can set it up so that everybody can comment without prior approval if you want.
