Plugin / Admin Commenters Comments Count

Scott Reilly



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.
