sitewide comment tracking (5 posts)

    Given: All(most) comments in my site are left by registered users only.

    Needed: a function that returns a list of my comments/trackbacks sitewide for a backend page of comments showing post/blog title/link.

    Roadblock: each comment in db has a comment_author. How do I return a list from the db where the display_name matches the comment_author?

    Also needed?: I think I'd need to change the existing comment function to be certain the comment_author is a match for the logged in user's display_name when creating the comment in the first place.

    Anyone done something like this for wordpressmu?

    I don't want

    Gotta admit that I just use the comment feed from the wpmufeed plugin and, if the email address matches the user, display the comment.

    Thanks for the idea, I'll look at the feed plugin and see if I can't filter the feed for a blog user.

    I tried to also display the post the user commented, but very unsuccessful. It becomes as the post, the comment all is linked as one.

    Any help?

    I've created a page(plugin or mu-plugin) to track comments/trackbacks sitewide from the backend.(By created I mean it's bashed together based on ah_recent_posts and Better Comment Manager)

    Creates a tonne of db queries, though, can anyone look at it and help make it lighter on the queries?

    That, or share how does it?
