In the Comment manager,  Mass Edit and View modes are so similar, I
wonder why there's a View mode at all. Why not just dump that and have
Mass Edit be the default/only? And why not a batch "Mark as Spam"
option on the Mass Edit page? And why no pagination to view earlier
comments in either view?

Are these features waiting to happen, or are there reasons why they are
the way they are?


Hi Scot,

This  was discussed on several occasions in the past  (among
them:  http://tinyurl.com/l26a4 ). Contexts I can  remember:
(1)  not  enough comments per page (e.g. to handle a lot  of
SPAM);  (2) No fine control over number of comments per page
(I  changed the source a long time ago, but  hidden/advanced
options  would have helped); (3) No pagination; (4) No  AJAX
control  for  quick deletion; (5) No batch-mode deletion  or
keyboard navigation; (6) Various issues to do with filtering
and flagging...

I  don't  know  if there are any plugins  that  improve  the
moderation  side  (back  end  plugins seem  more  likely  to
break), but I agree that the usability could be improved and
the  two types of moderation pages merged, e.g. use some  JS
to  un/fold  comment  contents,  so that  links  needn't  be
followed.   Then  come  accessibility  issues  and  keyboard
navigation, etc.

Best wishes,
