Earlier when I sent in my previous entry via gmail, the post went under ‘pending review’.
After doing some google-ing, I dicovered that wordpress will check for the email address of entry to see if it matches the one defined by the administrator.
If the email address matches the one defined, the entries will be published immediately. Otherwise it will fall under the category ‘pending review’.
Perhaps I should add another author to the blog with my gmail address, that ought to do the trick.
Also, smiley faces are enabled 🙂
