Daniel Dura, a platform evangelist at Adobe, recently released a very useful application called Moderator that’s been getting a fair amount of attention. If you maintain a blog powered by WordPress (2.6 or greater) and find it time consuming to approve comments on your blog, Moderator is the tool for you.
Moderator is a WordPress plugin and associated desktop application, built using Adobe AIR, that allows you to view and moderate comments from your desktop. Some of the features include:
- Viewing unmoderated comments.
- Dock and system tray notifications of the number of unmoderated comments.
- Accept, delete, and spam comments from within the desktop client.
- Close application window, or minimize it to the system tray while running.
- Shows the Gravatar icons for the user who posted the comment.
