When you create a post (we will get to this later) people can usually comment on your post. When someone comments, depending on your settings, those comments will be visible to the public. You will see the comments that have been posted or are pending. In this list you have 2 comments.
You can see the author’s avatar (picture), their name, the title of the post they are commenting on, the status (Pending), and the text of their comment. Finally, when you hover over the item (see the mouse arrow?) your dashboard gives you an little set of links to Approve, Reply, Spam, or Trash the comment.
You can also click the View all button to go see all the comments that have been made on your blog.
We will delve into comments again so you can see how much more control you can have over them.
