Managing Comments in your WP sites


In WP, your site visitors may leave comments on posts and pages.
Managing comments in WordPress is very similar to the way posts and pages are managed.

  • First login into your WP site and go to Dashboard, visit the Comments page. This screen is customizable in the same ways as other WP management screens.
  • If A yellow row show it means the comment is waiting for you to moderate it. You may act on comments using the on-hover action links or the Bulk Actions.
  • Go to the Author column in author column, in addition to the author’s name, email address, and blog URL, the commenters IP address is shown. Clicking on this link will show you all the comments made from this IP address.
  • Go to the Comment column in comment column, each comment includes Submitted on information, followed by the date and time the comment was left on your site. Clicking the date/time link will take you to that comment on your live site. Hovering over any comment gives you options to approve, reply (and approve), quick edit, edit, spam mark, or trash that comment.
  • Go to the Response To column , there are three elements. The text is the name of the post that comment is assigned to, and links to the post editor for that entry.
  • The View Post link leads back to that post on your live site. This small globule with the number shows the number of approved comments that post has received. If the globule is gray, you have moderated all comments for that post. If the globule is blue, there are pending comments. Clicking the globule will filter the comments screen to show only comments on that post.
  • There are also an another way to manage comments is from the WordPress Dashboard home screen. Here you’ll see recent comments and you may quickly and easily approve, reply, edit, mark as spam or trash by hovering over these links.
  • In your WP site you may change your Comment or Discussion settings from within the WP settings menu. This page allows you to make changes to the details of comments made on your site, plus the ability to blacklist comments to help manage spam comments.
