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?
