Comments: Such that the commenter can only see his/her own comments

    I am relatively new to WordPress, but not to web developing in general. What I can't seem to figure out, and need to do, is the following.

    I need the comments to function as essentially a conversation between the admin and the users who are commenting. What this means is, the user who is commenting should only be able to see his/her own comments, and then also the admin's responses to those comments. But, no user should be able to see comments from the admin that are not directed towards his/her own comments. Thus, a "leave a comment" box should be visible on the post, but unless that user has commented already, no comments should be visible.

    I've tried several plugins and functions. Nothing seems to be working. Does this make sense and can anyone direct me toward a possible solution?

    Thanks.

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

    A public blog is a public blog. What you propose is not possible on a free hosted WordPress.com blog like the empty one linked to your username.

    The blog I am building isn't live yet and its for someone specific, and will be hosted on a private, for pay server. There isn't really any reason you would need to see it, at least I don't think. Sorry that I didn't originally provide this information. It's a completely custom theme.

  5. Then you should be over here:
