Instead of having an email on every comment on a blog post I've wrote, I'm looking for a visual notification on wordpress itself, an "inbox" if you get what I mean.

Does that exist?

Thanks, Dennis

This should be visible by default on your WP admin dashboard under "recent comments". is there something else you're looking for it to do?

Hi Norcross, basically I want something in the template itself, as I restricted wp-admin access. People are still allowed to post using a custom form using wp_insert :) – FLX Jun 13 '11 at 13:18
I see. So if I'm reading this right, you want something visually on the front-end of the site?You could create a page template that has the site-wide recent comments. – Norcross Jun 15 '11 at 3:46
Hi Norcross, it wouldn't be site wide, but only an "inbox" for the comments on the author's own post – FLX Jun 15 '11 at 9:07
Gotcha. I'm not sure if that is something that exists. That's sort of what the admin dashboard is intended for :) – Norcross Jun 15 '11 at 17:57
