Comments form a very integral part of any blog to generate communication and spark discussions. As a WordPress blog user, managing comments and replying to them is very easy, however, what if you can manage and reply to comments from your desktop?

Manage WordPress Comments From Desktop

WP Comments Notifier is a open source application written in QT/C++ for Linux and Windows, which will allow you to manage new comments and reply to them from your desktop. In addition to that, it will also allow you to edit, spam or delete the comments.

WordPress Comments Notification

This app will also display comments summary when you hover over the system tray icon and alert you whenever a new comment is posted to your blog. The app also works for WPMU blogs.

You can download the installer for Windows by visiting the app homepage and also find instructions on how to build the app from source on Linux machines.

    Having a comment notifier in the tray is great!

    I like the fact it shows the full text of the comment (unlike the AIR moderator). If if could show comments for multiple WP blogs, that would be great.

    What Michael said.. I’m managing over 40 WP blogs, and having support to moderate multiple blogs would be a godsend!

    This is great for Windows users but there seems to be a problem for Linux users as there’s no download for available for Linux and little instruction for Linux on the site (although your supposed to be able to download using SVN ). And once you do there’s no “makefile” in the source code so you can’t build it.

    A comment about this has already been left on the site. Just thought that Linux users would want to know (like me).

    very cool. they just need a similar application for writing posts too, avoiding the userid/password prompt.

    See, I am blind, and I have the captcha plugin installed, and with that, its making it more difficult for me to login to my admin panel, so I am less motivated to write a post if I have to fuss with trying to get past the captcha for my own blog. lol

    I mean, I can do it, but because its more difficult now, then its making me less motivated to make posts at all.
