I've almost finished coding up a function that allows contributers when they are the post author to manage comments left on their own post (portfolio) couldnt find a plugin to do it so had to get myself dirty.
It will basically work like this:
1) User leaves a comment on post_authors portfolio.
2) Post_author is notified by email that they have a comment for moderation (this bit is handled by a plugin "notify-on-comments").
3) Post_author logs in and goes to his/her portfolio page and in the comments are two links one for "delete" and one for "approve" comment.
Now i can get the delete to work on already published comments, my problem is that i am wanting to show the unpublished comment along with the published comments (dont want folks having access to wp-admin dashboard to moderate comments, i want it all done on the front end),
Does anyone know how i can do this part of showing the un-approved comment at front-end to contributers?
Once completed i will be more than happy to share the code and credits should anyone else need it.
Regards and thanks in advance
