Note: This feature is relevant to GDPR compliance. Learn more: User Data Privacy and GDPR Compliance

In the plugin settings you can find a table which explains the plugin behavior (whether or not certain posts will be published and how they will be moderated) based on your WordPress settings. The table is called the Moderation Options Table and it is located on the upper part of the settings screen above the tabs.

The CM Answers plugin depends on the WordPress spam system, so whatever is defined in your WordPress Discussion Settings as spam will also apply to the CM Answers behavior.

Please adjust the WP and CM Answers settings according to the expected behavior (Indicated in the Effect Column) you wish to have.
