    I would like to change default settings for Option->Discussion -> Before a comment appears
    when users create a new blog.

    By default, it's "comment author must have a previously approved comment".
    I'd like to have that option unchecked.

    I basically don't want comments held in moderation.

    I am answering my own question.. In case someone else has a similar question,

    For Wordpress MU version 1.3.1
    The default values are in: wp-admin/includes/schema.php
    Line 282
    for "comment_whitelist", change default value from 1 to 0

    And administrator to always approve coment, set
    'comment_moderation' to 1.

    Is it possible to do it without hacking the core files?

    I've tried making a mu-plugin like

    function blogs_conf ( $blog_id ) {
        add_option('comment_moderation', 1);
    add_action('wpmu_new_blog', 'blogs_conf');

    Well, it does work for new entry (WP_LANG), but probably not for existing one. But 'update_option' didn't helped either.

    Anyone tried that before?

    There's other threads as well if you search for "change existing options"

    Was looking but by other criteria.
    Well, direct query is rather simple option but I was hoping to do that in update/add_option way. Then I coul have all my hacks in one plugin.
    Don't know what was expecting... :)

    Thank for help!
