Every WordPress webmaster should take the time to go through the comments he/she has received and respond to some on a regular basis. Many of us do not allow comments to be posted to our sites automatically. That is for a good reason: spammers are out there to inject their nasty content into your website. If you approve all comments automatically, who knows what can show up on your site.
There is a downside to this approach as well. By not approving comments automatically, your moderation queue can get quite large and unmanageable. That’s where Automatic Comment Scheduler plays a role. It can auto-approve comments and notify you based on your defined time intervals.
This plugin is pretty simple to use. All you have to do is define your interval, and the rest is taken care of. You can choose to receive e-mail notifications when a comment is approved (I recommend turning this on if you want to make sure nasty comments don’t show up on your website by accident).
Automatic Comment Scheduler may save you some time managing your comments, but you are still going to have to engage your visitors and respond to their comments if you want your community to grow. This plugin can just make you a bit more productive.
