I have setup a CQ blog. When a blog post is added by default the Comments component has the Moderated tickbox, un-ticked by default.
Is there any way to make comments moderated by default?
Unfortunately it is not possible I have placed a issue for it. Currently comment moderation is not enabled by default. In order to enable followed  and it sets the value on the dialog to be selected as moderated. However, in the JCR 'moderateComments' fields is not getting saved, unless users explicitly click on the dialog box ok where this field is available.
