"Action" links on Edit Comments

Reported by: ozh Owned by: mdawaffe
Milestone: 2.5 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.6
Component: Administration Keywords: edit-comments has-patch needs-feedback
Focuses: Cc:


On each comment in the "Edit Comments" page there are 2 action links: "Spam" + "Delete", and maybe "Approve" if applicable.

The "Edit" link, while being a regular action, is practically hidden in the comment itself (in place of the commenter's URL). And there is no convenient way to unapprove a particular comment (except first editing it, then moderating it)

This patch brings back more action links. The Edit link in particular is really awkwardly missing.

There is a bulk Unapprove button. Given how little Unapprove is used in most workflows, I don't think it needs to be on every row.

Matt asked me to bring back the "Unapprove" links as well. I didn't realize there was already a ticket and a patch :(

Anyway here's my patch.


No edit links (in keeping with the rest of the admin design), but it adds an Unapprove link using the same disappearing/reappearing CSS trick as before (and as in ozh's patch). It also knows when to toggle and when to remove rows from the table depending on what page you're looking at (as does ozh's patch).

I should have said that I also find the current means of editing a comment to be awkward.

I asked MT to bring the edit link issue to HC's attention. Haven't heard anything yet.

Reopening this because I too would like the 'Edit' among the actions. Have a nice day.
