12In the In Response To column, there are three elements. The text is the name of the post that inspired the comment, and links to the post editor for that entry. The "#" permalink symbol below leads to that post on your live site. The small bubble with the number in it shows how many comments that post has received. If the bubble is gray, you have moderated all comments for that post. If it is blue, there are pending comments. Clicking the bubble will filter the comments screen to show only comments on that post.
