unpublish COMMENTS plugin? (3 posts)

    Is there any plugin or modification that will allow me to "unpublish" comments?

    Out of the box, WordPress can unpublish posts. But apparently not comments.

    For comments, the only options are approve, spam and delete. I need a bucket to put in comments that I don't want to approve now, but may want to approve later.

    And if it is "approved" the link changes to "UNapprove". Isn't that what you are looking for?

    Not exactly. I should clarify. If I change it to "unapprove":

    1. The comment goes back in the moderation queue,
    2. So the moderation queue is never empty,
    3. and the moderators never know when the moderation queue needs their attention.

    We are looking for some kind of holding pen. On a board-based system, we would just split off the comment and store it in a moderator-only forum. In WordPress, there must be some way to create a new comment status of "unpublish"?

    Thanks for your response!
