blog comment awaiting moderation?

Hi there.  I have a wordpress site and set up a blog.  However, when a user submits a comment or new blog post, it tells them "Your comment is awaiting moderation."

I don't want to have to approve those every time.  I believe I have each of the settings correct though in Discussion section of dashboard.

What am i missing?

1. Go to your wordpress admin
2. Go to Settings->Discussion->Before a comment appears
3. Uncheck both options

If you've already changed the settings in Settings>Discussion to allow comments to publish without approval, you might check your themes comments.php file if it has one.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

@jeremyjared74: it's a studio press theme and yes has a comments.php file

Check to see if you can see the text "Your comment is awaiting moderation". If it isn't there it may be in the functions.php file ( I doubt it's in the functions file, but it is possible). Another thing you could try to narrow it down would be to switch to the TwentyTen or TwentyEleven theme to see if you get the same notice. If you don't then you know it's in the theme files.
