Does custom roles (eg. Moderator) have the ability to moderate comments if I give them the WordPress capability to “moderate_comments”? I created the role specifically so they can moderate all comments + other functions. Am I also able to disable Editors from being able to moderate the comments?

Hi Mocha,

Thank you for your interest in wpDiscuz Frontend Moderation add-on.

Does custom roles (eg. Moderator) have the ability to moderate comments if I give them the WordPress capability to “moderate_comments”?

yes, if you give the role the WordPress capability to “moderate_comments”, they’ll be able to moderate comments.

Am I also able to disable Editors from being able to moderate the comments?

sure, this also can be reached if you remove the moderate_comments WordPress user capability

Whenever I click “Delete” button on moderation, there’s a message “Ops!!! Something is wrong”. I refresh the page and there’s no comment. Could you please remove that message?

Hi. Does Author have ability to Moderate comments?

7 months 26 days ago

Hi dm1,

Thank you for your interest in wpDiscuz Frontend Moderation add-on.

In general Authors and Contributors are not allowed to moderate the comments. However, it’s allowed for the authors, who are the author of the current post. That is if the current author is not the author of the current post she/he is allowed to moderate comments.

10 months 27 days ago

The plugin will show also a front end dashboard with all comment in moderation?

10 months 27 days ago

Hi Giacomo,

You’ll see all unapproved comments under each post on the frontend. On the frontend you can:
1. Approve the comments,
2. Put in spam,
3. Trash comment etc.

However, if you put the comment in spam, or trash it, you’ll not be able to see it on the frontend. They only will be visible on the backend.

What is the function of the blacklist? User will not be able to comment? Somewhere this list is displayed?

1 year 3 months ago

Hi Aleksey,

It’ll move comments into the bin. The user will be able to comment, however, all comments will be moved into the bin.
All those comments you can find in Dashboard > Comments > All Comments > bin admin page.

Is there possibility to send ansewer to unapproved comment author? Not as an email, but as response comment, visible only to author. In example author post a comment, than sees info “comment is waiting for moderation”, and after the comment is unapproved auhtor sees message like “Thanks for commenting, you will get answer by email within 3 days”.

Hi Marcin,

Would you like to add the message for all unapproved comments, or you want to select manually some of them?

Hi there,

I’m thinking about buying this add-on, but before I do, I have one question.

I know that comment authors are able to delete their own comments, but I was wondering if the post author is also able to delete comments that other people have made on their post. This is in case people are writing inappropriate comments on someone’s upload, and they want to delete the other people’s comments.

Thank you 🙂

Please note, the Comment Moderation addon is only designed for Admins and Editors, it doesn’t have other options for role specific or user specific customization. You should set a user as editor if you want let him moderate comments. Authors and Contributors are not allowed for comment moderation.

Hi Tom,

Thank you very much for your quick response, and for answering my question 🙂

One final question, are there any plans to allow author moderating in future versions of the addon? I am just curious because by default, WordPress does allow authors to moderate comments on their own posts (https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/#author).

If not, that’s alright and thank you anyway.

Have a great day 🙂

I am looking for an add-on plugin for users to be able to ignore/un-ignore other users, when they don’t want to see a specific commenters input. It seems like moderate > blacklist is close, but can users un-ignore once they’s blaclisted, are they blackisting just for themselves or effecting all users, and is it an anonymous feature?

2 years 5 months ago

Please check this plugin, it may fit some of your needs (this is not only censoring plugin, it has user controlling options): https://gvectors.com/product/comments-censure-pro/

So my question is can users with role “editors” moderate “contributors” and “subscribers” comments?.

2 years 9 months ago

Yes, he can. his addon allows Admins and Editors to moderate others’ comments.

A couple of questions:

Will this allow me to automatically approve all comments made, or is that setting buried somewhere in the standard wpdiscuz package (cant find it)?

Does this allow for the creation of a different role for users, specifically a comment moderator with limited admin abilities?

Thanks. I appreciate your wpdiscuz plugin, and am looking to expand its functionality through add ons.

You can enable auto-approving of all comments in WordPress Settings, just uncheck/disable these two options:

This is only available for those roles who is allowed to moderate comments in native WordPress System. E.g. Admins and Editors are permitted for comment moderation.

I was wondering if this give users the ability to delete their own comments. I really need this feature for my site to function properly.

Thank you !

Hi Tyler,
Yes, this addon has this feature. It adds delete button for all registered users not only for admins. There is a screenshot in Screenshots Tab which shows the button next to share button, title “Front-end – Comment delete button for registered users”.

Using the plugin WITHOUT front- med moderation ADD-ON the comments “awaiting moderation” remain moderate even after the aprrove in the WordPress Dashboard .

With the ADD-ON the comments will be comments will be shown automatically without having to refresh the page?

3 years 7 months ago

Hi Igor,
You’re talking about the live update function. It doesn’t have any relation to this addon.
Real-time comment function can be enabled in wpDiscuz Settings > Live Update Tab. If live update is turned on it’ll update comment list without reloading page.
More information ind wpDiscuz Documentation > “Live Update Settings” section: http://wpdiscuz.com/wpdiscuz-documentation/

This addon will help you unapprove/upprove, trash, delete … directly on comment list. All actions are AJAX powered and page is not being refreshed.

1. Does this allow other users to report or flag a comment as spam?
2. Is there a feature or addon that can automatically take off a spammy comment after a number of times users have flagged it?

The report/ flag feature is veryyyy critical, especially in an active community where trolls thrive.

Thanks for the lovely plugin btw.

Hi Will,
This addon has only admin moderation tools (approve, unapprove, spam, trash, delete, email, blacklist, move) and delete button for regular registered users. You’re talking about “Comment Report and Flagging” addon, this is almost done and will be available next week. it comes with these features:

1. Comment Flag icon – one click comment flagging.
2. Flag icon can also open a pop-up dialog to let reporter write a message and choose the category of bad comment.
3. You can allow auto-moderation, which will automatically trash or unapprove comments with certain amount of flags/reports
4. This also integrated with wpDiscuz voting/liking system, the auto-moderation will also trash or unapprove based on number of down-votes. All numbers are customizable through addon setting page.
5. It’ll also be able to send according notification emails to administrator and comment author.
6. Lots of settings to manage all features.
