I am using WordPress 188.8.131.52 (French version) in which I have imported a blog together with its comments - and everything is fine, except for the following administrative issue (rather important, actually).
The Table of Comments shows the 20 most recent comments, but there is no way to see the older ones, as there is no button at the bottom of the SubPanel to "View the Next 20 Comments". It is simply not there. I can find older comments by searching for them specifically (e.g., by a word in their contents), but I would like to cycle through them. I don't have this problem when viewing the list of articles.
I have looked in the edit-comments.php code and it appears to me that the code is set to allow going through groups of 20 comments ("20" is hardwired in the code) by use of the "offset" variable, and it works if called manually (i.e., if you type the following URL: http://.../wp-admin/edit-comments.php?offset=3, say, you'll get the fourth page of 20 comments). Yet there is nowhere that the code puts a link at the bottom of the page to allow to go the the next or previous page of comments.
Any suggestions other than adding the code myself...? Thanks.
