Better Moderation

Provides more control over comment moderation


  • Logging when comments are moved out of trash
  • Added relevant settings from 'discussion' to the admin page
  • Renamed Better Moderation


  • Global variable for the reason so we don't need to check the comment twice
  • IPs and UAs were being ignored as not in the place we were originally looking


  • Allows for ^ to be used at the start or end of a match to ignore words prefixed or postfixed with other letters, eg, ^feck would match feck, fecking, fecker, but not mutherfecker.


  • Spots for Comment "Whitelisting" (where a user is moderated if they have never had an accepted comment before)
  • Logs when an admin trashes a comment


  • Adds new Argh Moderation Menu
  • Adds column with reason to edit-comments.php
  • Adds reason for moderated comments to the overview on the dashboard
  • Adds reason to the automatic email
  • Logs when an admin either moderates or approves a comment
  • Hides the default moderation info from the built in moderation action
  • Warns on the discussion page that alternative settings are in use
