#26738 closed enhancement (fixed)

Show approved comment count on admin dashboard / At a glance metabox

With comment spam being so ruthless, it seems pointless to show the total number of comments in the database rather than just approved.

I have Tens of thousands of comments according to the dashboard, but only a handful are legit.

In the "At a glance" metabox, the posts and pages only show the Approved count, so it'd make sense to show how many approved comments there are here too.

I agree. Especially because we now separately show the number of comments in moderation right next to it. Approved and moderated comments are the important numbers (so, we don't care about spam comments so much).
