  2. On the left, select My channel.
  3. Under your channel banner, click settings .
  4. Turn Show discussion tab on or off.
  5. If you have the discussion tab turned on, chose a comments setting:
    • Display automatically: Comments will always show on your channel.
    • Don't display until approved: Comments won't show on your channel until you approve them.
