Manage User Comments from the Frontend in WordPress

manage user comments from the frontend in wordpress

Comments are really important. We all want to know what our visitors are saying about our entries and our site. Now, if you’re creating an app for your users to be able to manage their sites completely from the frontend, maybe you need to include this section of the site on a frontend page.

That’s why we want to show you how to see and manage your post comments in WordPress from the frontend using the WP Frontend Admin plugin.

With the WP Frontend Admin plugin you can quickly create web apps from your WP plugins. You can display any wp-admin page on the frontend in order to allow users to manage their sites from there instead of getting lost using the somewhat complex backend.

What’s best, you can do it without having to write any codes. With just one click and some minutes to configure the new frontend pages, you’ll be ready.

1- Open the comments in wp-admin

The first step you need to take in order to manage your comments section from the frontend is to go to WP Admin > Comments.

2- View it on the frontend

Now, you need to click on the View on the frontend button in order to display and manage your comments on the frontend.

3- Configure and publish the page

Our plugin will display a panel on the left side of the screen in which you can edit the page’s quick settings. For example, here you can select the page’s title, template, URL slug, and menu.

Also, you can hide any unnecessary elements such as the Comments text, the Screen Options and Help dropdowns, etc. For that, just click on Hide element and then click on the elements you want to hide.

Once you’re done configuring the page’s quick settings and look, click on Save to publish it.

4- Manage your comments from the frontend

Once you publish the page, your users will need to log in to see and manage the comments section on the frontend.

Now you’ll see your comments section on the frontend for you to manage them from there.

How simple!

It’s really simple. It doesn’t require you to program anything, and it only takes some seconds.

important questions

1- Can I use other plugins to create web apps?

Yes. You can display any admin page on the frontend, and it works with all WordPress plugins.

2- Is the plugin compatible with page builders?

Yes. You can use it with other page builders such as Elementor, Visual Composer, Gutenberg, Divi, Beaver Builder, WP Page Builder, Page Builder by SiteOrigin, Oxygen, Live Composer, Brizy, and many others to create great sites.

3- What if I cannot see this page on the frontend after login?

If you can not view the page after log in, you need to use one of these roles: administrator, editor, author, contributor, shop_manager, wpseo_manager, wpseo_editor, shop_accountant, shop_worker, shop_vendor, lp_teacher, give_manager, give_accountant, give_worker, employer.

In case you don’t want to assign one of these roles, you can create a new user role with the User Role Editor plugin. This new user role needs the edit_posts capability.

4- How many elements can I hide?

You can hide all elements you want. It all depends on what you need.

Just be careful not to hide elements you might need in the future.

5- What if I want to revert the elements I’ve hidden?

You can revert that. Just click on Revert below the Hide element button.
