Restricting comments on ALL blogs to registered users (2 posts)

    Is it possible to lock down comments so that users HAVE to be registered to post. I know I can do it on individual blogs but to cut down on abuse I want this to be how it is across the site - I don't want blog owners to be able to change this setting either.

    I can't pull up the code form here right now but you would have to remove the option from the /wp-admin/options-general.php file.

    Then open up /wp-admin/upgrade-schema.php and then I think you have to change:

    add_option('comment_registration', 0);


    add_option('comment_registration', 1);

    That's where your new blog defaults are defined.

    Donncha, is that right?
