Private Messages As Well As Public Comments

  1. saltlakejohn

    I'd like the WP comment form to do double duty with a second submit option that would make a comment private to the Admin.

    As the Admin, I'd manage those private messages with a moderation-type screen. Like public comments, private messages would be held in the wp_comments table where I could read and delete, or possibly edit and publish, depending how private they were. They'd be subject to the same sanitizing and spam controls as public comments. I could do away with my separate "contact me" form-2-email page and I'd no longer be concerned about SMTP, email header injection, or jumping into a separate email client unless I wanted to dialog with the commenter.

    Just turn on moderation for all comments, and those you don't approve will be private to the admin.
