Protect Comments or Moderate

In [url=http://b2evolution.net/index.html]What is b2evolution?[/url] under [url=http://b2evolution.net/index.html#Advanced]3. For Advanced Bloggers[/url], One feature listed is

"Open/closed/disabled/protected comments"

In the BackOffice, when creating a "New Post", one can select a radio button for Comments to be "Open", "Closed" or "Disabled". There is not a selection for "Protected". I checked in conf/_admin.php (where one selects the initial status of a Post) and didn't see anything additional for Comments.

Does the "protected" feature refer to the anti-spam feature or an (possibly future) ability to moderate Comments (that is, send a new comment to some sort of moderator's queue for approval before publishing it). Or am I missing something?

Thanks in advance.

That was a mistake on the site. Sorry. This feature is not yet implemented.

Hope to make it available soon.

Ah, so (possibly future) applies. Not a mistake, just aniticipatory. :lol:

We will wait with bated breath. ;)

Thank you.

Fran?ois,

I'll need this for the special blog I'm making for the CEO of our company.
Can you tell me in what direction you will/have implemented it, so, I can start tweaking my own copy, without doing to mutch wring in the database.
Is it an extra field in the comments-table ?

Any news on this? I was very glad to see your comment listed below. Moderating comments would be a great solution. Maybe you could also implement the Wordpress feature that before a comment will be displayed, the user must have one previously approved comment.

(...) The only solution, I think is to moderate comments. Maybe we'll make comments moderrated by default on future b2evo versions, so spammers will know there will be only a very small percentage of sites that, if spammed, will actually display the spam publicly (i-e without prior moderation)...
