I see the possibility to hide comments but one by one.
I don’t want to approve every comments…
Is there the possibility to protect all comments in automatic way to a specific post?

Yep, we are working on something that will make it so you don’t have to protect individual comments if you don’t want to. It will allow you to protect all the comments in a post that is already protected.August 1, 2010 at 6:38 am #22965
Fantastic, I remain waiting for the development!August 2, 2010 at 2:45 am #22966
I have sent you something to test. The updated version of eMember that I sent you can automatically protect all comments where the post is protected. Browser to the settings menu of eMember and uncheck the “Protect Comments Separately” option to get this feature working.August 2, 2010 at 5:09 am #22967clcMember
This would be a great feature to use on my website as well. I just bought eMember a few days ago but would love an update please to use this feature if possible.
Thank you!!August 2, 2010 at 7:55 am #22968
Great feature! Thank You Amin!August 9, 2010 at 7:00 pm #22969jeffwMember
What release version of eMember is this in? I have 5.5.0 but am not using it because the update profile functionality isnt working with it.August 10, 2010 at 12:07 am #22970wpCommerceModerator
Hi, You might need an update as a bug has been fixed on updating members profile. Please have a look on this post on how to get update –
Let me know how it goes.July 23, 2011 at 3:15 pm #22971
Hi – just wondering about this myself.
I have a new membership and have designated a category on the blog as “Member’s Only” and have protected it. But it looks as though the public can still see comments on posts in this category, and leave comments themselves. Just wondering how to completely shut off access to member’s only posts.
One of the nifty features in WishList is the ability to basically make member’s only stuff disappear from the blog – only becomes visible when logged in. Would be great if you could incorporate something like this. I don’t really want to make non-member’s feel excluded every time I post something for the group.

By default comments on a protected post or page is also protected unless you check the “Protect Comments Separately” checkbox from the settings menu which lets you manually set protection for each comment.
Do not show member’s only stuff to anonymous users – This is done via conditional code tweaking. eMember has conditional functions that you can apply around your navigation menus, sidebar widgets etc to make them only appear if a member is logged in. The following documentation has examples of this:
eMember can’t magically apply conditions to your templates (the navigation menus come from your theme’s template). Any output that is coming from your template can be wrapped around certain eMember conditions and it will be visible to users who meet that condition.July 24, 2011 at 10:28 pm #22973
That check box is not selected, so based on what you’ve said (at least my understanding of what you’ve said), when I click on the “leave a comment” link when NOT logged in it should tell me I can’t leave a comment, right?
What actually happens is the comment box comes up and I can leave a comment (well I assume I can anyway).
Obviously not too likely people will try to leave comments on a post they can’t see, but you never know.July 25, 2011 at 3:55 am #22974
The option to enforce “comment option for logged in users” comes from the standard WordPress settings.
Go to “WordPress Settings” -> “Discussions” then check the “Users must be registered and logged in to comment” fieldJuly 26, 2011 at 1:54 am #22975
But then that means my regular viewing public won’t be able to leave comments on the rest of my blog (the non-members-only content), right?
Guess I can’t have my cake and eat it too??
Oh wellSeptember 8, 2011 at 12:31 am #22976adminKeymaster
We added another option in eMember to enforce “comment posting ability for logged in members only”. So now you don’t have to use the WordPress’s option if you don’t want to.
