Support » Plugin: Custom Post Type UI » Customize Comments Table

    Hi,

    I have custom post types and admin roles that can read/edit/edit their related post type only.

    These post types can have comments. Now I need that the admin comments_table for my sub admin shows only the comments to his related cutom post type.

    So far the sub-admin’s dashboard shows only the custom post type and a comments list. The “others”-comments in this list are already “disabled” (not editable) but they still show. I need to hide/exclude them completely because of privacy issues.

    Thanks
    Kathryn

    Is this request similar/matching to https://wordpress.org/support/topic/show-comments-admin-menu-for-cpt/ or is it a related but different issue?

    Not something we have as part of our plugin here, so I can’t point out some setting to check and save for. I am wondering if there’s a way to modify the comment query for the admin-area requests to only fetch comments on posts for the current logged in user.

    Alternatively, I wonder if it’d be possible to programmatically remove the comment column in the list table, and any other columns you may not want, so that if anything they can’t see THAT much unless they click in to view/edit a comment, which would only be able to be done on their own.

    Hi Michael,

    thanks, yes: I was wondering if I posted this in the right place at all because it has not anything to do with your plugin, really.

    And yes: I need to either modify the comment query or do some other magic stuff – except that my magical skills are too limited for this one. I found an old aricle about this (https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/72210/exclude-post-type-from-admin-comments-list) but that’s way above my programming skills. And it’s old. Could not google anything more up to date. Not that old can’t be valid.

    If you’d like me to by you a pizza or two …

    🙂

    Not sure that link is what you want either.

    I sort of managed to get the comment content column removed, but it made for a really big blank area in the table, which was less than ideal. Also tried to at least replace the content in that column with an empty string but no luck yet on that either.

    Yeah, don’t know. I guess I’ll have to do some more work on this …

    Thanks anyway!
