Posted in Plugins, WordPress • Posted on 4 Comments

In recent years blogs have become so popular that and they’re one of the most common ways people get their daily dose of information. It’s not possible for a single person to provide quality content everyday. As a result, major websites are accepting  guest authors to provide quality content on a regular basis.

Authors play a vital role in these multi-author blogs since they are responsible for providing up-to-date content for their readers. Once a post is published, the author has to respond to comments, fix the issues and update the content according to the latest trends. As an Author, it is important to respond to user comments quickly. When a comment is made, only the administrator gets the notification email to approve the comments.

Then you will be able to view all the comments in one place. So Lets get started.
