The Recent Comments module on the WordPress Dashboard is one of several modules. the Recent Comments module provides information about comments and managing them. Within this module, you find

  • Most recent comments published to your blog: WordPress displays a maximum of five comments in this area.

  • The author of each comment: The name of the person who left the comment appears above it. This section also displays the author’s picture (or avatar), if she has one.

  • A link to the post the comment was left on: The post title appears to the right of the commenter’s name. Click the link and you go to that post on the Dashboard.

  • An excerpt of the comment: This is a snippet of the comment this person left on your blog.

  • Comment management links: When you hover over the comment with your mouse cursor, five links appear underneath the comment. These links give you the opportunity to manage those comments right from your Dashboard: The first link is Unapprove, which appears only if you have comment moderation turned on. The other four links are Reply, Edit, Spam, and Trash.

  • View links: These links appear at the bottom of the Recent Comments module, where you can click All, Pending, Approved, Spam, and Trash.
