In this video, you’ll learn the tips, tricks, and best practices for managing comments and encouraging meaningful discussion with your visitors.
Comments are an important feature of healthy websites, because they allow your readers to respond to your Posts and interact with you, the author. This gives your readers the opportunity to share their own thoughts or questions about the content of your post, but your readers may also provide links to other resources, generate discussion, or simply compliment you for a well-written post.
Comments can be controlled and regulated through the use of filters for language and content, and even queued for approval before they are visible on the web site. This is useful in dealing with comment spam.
