Show Pending Comments Count

Display the pending comments count next to the approved comments count in the admin listing of posts.

NOTE: This plugin is deprecated as of WordPress 4.3, which now includes a display of the count of pending comments alongside the regular count of comments. And it does so in a more aesthetically pleasing fashion than this plugin ever did, so if you are using WP 4.3 or later, there's no need to use this plugin. In fact, it won't do anything for you if you try to use it. The plugin is still fully functional for WP 4.2 and earlier.

By default, in the admin listing of posts, each post has its count of approved comments displayed within a word bubble. If you hover over a comment count, the tooltip hover text indicates the number of pending comments. This plugin utilizes JavaScript to change the post listings so that the pending comments count is displayed next to the approved comments count inside the same word bubble (though with a separator).

The pending comments count will appear next to post comment counts in:

  • The "Posts" listing of posts (formerly called "Edit Posts")
  • The "Pages" listing of pages (formerly called "Edit Pages")
  • The "Comments" listing of comments (formerly called "Edit Comments")

This plugin will only function for users in the admin who have JavaScript enabled.
