Multiple Moderators


A WordPress plugin which allows site administrators to nominate multiple blog users to moderate comments.

Adds a page to the WordPress admin which enables the selection of blog users (either individually or by role) as comment moderators. Achieves moderation by plugging the wp_notify_moderator() function (in wp-includes/pluggable.php) and adding the extra moderators to the admin email.


  1. Upload the unzipped archive to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory, or install directly through the dashboard
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Configure moderators for comments on the blog through the Comments submenu “Comment Moderators”


Does this plugin work on a multisite installation?

Yes, but moderators will have to be set up for comments on each site

Can this plugin stop me (the site administrator) getting moderation requests?

Yes, but the post author will always get comment notifications
