Thanx Lester. I had to debug admin template.php file to find out about ‘side’ value.
But also, in template.php I have found that they have removed another call I used (was working with early WP 2.7) to add meta box on comment edit page. From ‘do_meta_boxes’ method a do_action call has been commented out. Did you find some other way to add meta box to the edit comments page?
I tried add_meta_box, but it doesn’t work with edit comments page.
When I set $page argument to ‘comments’, global dashboard object is expanded with comments but obviously nothing is using it at the momemet. Hopefully we don’t need to wait until 2.8 for the change in the meta box functions.
