Are there any settings for WooCommerce Reviews Manually Approved?
No. All you need to do is install and activate the plugin and new product reviews will require approval. To turn it off, simply deactivate the plugin.
How does it work?
The plugin creates a hook that is triggered whenever someone writes a product review. It then changes the review to a pending (hold) status which requires the review to be manually reviewed and approved (or deleted).
Wait, WooCommerce doesn’t do this?
Nope. New product reviews are immediately available for anyone to read, which is why this plugin exists.
How do I approve the review?
In the WordPress admin area under Comments.
