Admin Commenters Comments Count

Beskrivning

Next to all appearances of each commenter’s name in the admin, this plugin shows a comments bubble identical to the one shown for posts in the admin listing of posts. The comments bubble shows the number of approved comments for that person and potentially a red superscript circle indicating the number of pending comments for the person (assuming they have any). The comment counts are linked to listings of comments associated solely with that particular commenter.

By default in WordPress, it is not possible to tell via a single glance whether a particular commenter has commented before or how many times the’ve commented.

This plugin adds this handy capability to the WordPress admin pages that allows you to:

  • Quickly identify a first-time commenter
  • Quickly identify unfamiliar commenters that have in fact commented before
  • Quickly see how many total comments a particular commenter has made, and how many comments are pending
  • Easily navigate to a listing of all approved comments and all moderated comments by a commenter, in order to see what post and when they last commented (or first commented), get a feel for the nature of their comments, or find something they’ve said in the past

Specifically, the linked comment count appears next to commenters in:

  • The ”Comments” listing of comments (including comment search results)
  • The ”Comments for ’POST_TITLE'” listing of post-specific comments
  • The ”Discussion” box of the ”Edit Post” page for a post with comments
  • The ”Recent Comments” admin dashboard widget
  • The ”Users” listing of users (as the column ”Comments”)

Commenters are identified by the email address they provided when commenting. If your site does not require that commenters submit their email address when commenting, this plugin will use the commenter’s name as the identifier, though since this is a publicly viewable piece of data it’s possible that multiple people could be posting under the same ”name”, so this method has the potential to be not as accurate.

Installation

Vanliga frågor

Why would I want to see a count of how many comments someone made?

There are many reasons, some of which might include:

  • Quickly identify a first-time commenter
  • Quickly identify unfamiliar commenters that have in fact commented before
  • Quickly see how many total comments a particular commenter has made, and how many comments are pending
  • Easily navigate to a listing of all approved comments and all moderated comments by a commenter, in order to see what post and when they last commented (or first commented), get a feel for the nature of their comments, or find something they’ve said in the past

How does the plugin know about all of the comments someone made to the site?

Commenters are identified by the email address they provided when making a comment. If commenters are allowed to omit providing an email address, then their name is used to identify them (though this is potentially less accurate).

Why does it report someone as having less comments than I know they’ve actually made?

Since commenters are identified by the email address they provided when making a comment, if they supply an alternative email address for a comment, the plugin treats that email address as a separate person.

How do I hide (or show) the ”Comments” column in the listing of the admin Users page?

Click the ”Screen Options” link in the upper-right of the page. It will slide down a form. Click (or unclick) the checkbox for ”Comments” to show (or hide) the column.

Does this plugin include unit tests?

Ja.

Just what the blog author wanted, a way to identify new members versus previous members with a comment history. Not a crude addition, done with style!

I just wanted to know who the top commenters were, and I waded through all sorts of stats plugins before I found this, which just did what its title suggested it would, and all I needed it to! 🙂 Worked on 4.8.2. Suggestion: It might be useful to be able to do a simple extract to CSV, showing names, emails, number of comments and dates of those comments - either as an enhancement to this, or to the Commenter Emails plug in.

Shows the post and comments in the right side of the admin page. Clicking in lets the admin see the details. Exactly what I needed. Thanks!

I like the ease of clicking on the number of comments box to get a list of the comments from that person. A useful utility.

Plugin allows moderators to click on the number beside a commenter's name and see previous comments made. This allows moderators to judge whether the person comment is an asset or liability to the blog. Just have one minor complaint: Since a recent update of either Wordpres or this plugin, the numbers appear in a medium grey on a darker grey background. Thus it's not easy to read the numbers.
