Post author view and approve comments (3 posts)

    Hi!

    I have a multi-author blog, where different people can log in as authors to create posts in their own category/blogg. I found a plugin that makes it default for them to add posts to THEIR category only. (Plugin; Author Category)

    BUT, when it comes to comments, is their any way to have each author being able to ONLY view and approve comments on their own posts? As of right now, only the author is able to actually approve the comment, but any author can see them through their login page.

    Naturally, you want the author him/herself to be able to view and approve/delete comments before anyone else.

    I would use this plugin to allow authors to moderate comments on the front-end.
    FV Thoughtful Comments
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/thoughtful-comments/

    Then I would probably hide the 'Comments' area in the admin area, by modifying the functions.php file.

    //remove menu items that aren't used
    function remove_menus () {
    global $menu;
    	$restricted = array( __('Comments'), __('Links'));
    	end ($menu);
    	while (prev($menu)){
    		$value = explode(' ',$menu[key($menu)][0]);
    		if(in_array($value[0] != NULL?$value[0]:"" , $restricted)){unset($menu[key($menu)]);}
    	}
    }
    add_action('admin_menu', 'remove_menus');

    Probably not exactly what you're looking for but maybe it will give you some ideas...
