  • Admins and Editors can moderate comments. Authors and below can’t. I don’t think WordPress allows comment moderation only on one’s own posts or pages but there may be a plugin for that.

    Now I understand how works moderation, I didn’t test enough before.

    Do you know a way for authors only sees their own posts comments and not the entire list?

    Thanks you.

    I’m also looking for this — authors see comments to THEIR OWN POST ONLY when they go to moderate comments.

    I notice that now when an author goes to “Posts,” the default is a “Mine” section. Seems comments could be handled the same way.

    Anyone know of a solution?

    I found a very simple plugin that says it will do this for posts, so I was wondering if a slight change to this plugin will do this for comments (show only the comments related to posts of that particular author).

    By the way, I’m not sure if this plugin actually works for posts or not, but maybe someone with PHP knowledge can look at it, and it will spark an answer.

    Found the plugin here:

    This is the code:

    function mypo_parse_query_useronly( $wp_query ) {
        if ( strpos( $_SERVER[ 'REQUEST_URI' ], '/wp-admin/edit.php' ) !== false ) {
            if ( !current_user_can( 'level_10' ) ) {
                global $current_user;
                $wp_query->set( 'author', $current_user->id );
    add_filter('parse_query', 'mypo_parse_query_useronly' );
