Hi All,

I think it would be nice if had a section in the admin panel where you could see all the comments that have been posted to the blog and check if they are approved or not. I believe wordpress has this feature and I think it would be handy for anyone who recieves a few comments a day on there blog.

Is this something that could be created as an 'add on' or does it need to be built into the framework for the next release? I would be interested to know your thoughts on this feature.

You can use Commentor ( now and most of it's functionality will be integrated in BE later.

Commentor works, but doesn't add itself to your admin panel. Fortunately, adding it there is relatively easy once Commentor is installed. Edit the Web.sitemap file and add this line 

    <siteMapNode url="~/User controls/Commentor/Admin.aspx" title="comments" description="" roles="administrators" />

Once that's in there, you'll be able to get at the Commentor panel from the admin panel without having to go through Extensions first.
