Pending Comments Highlighter


I have found a very annoying problem on the admin panel.

Where the comments are listed, unapproved comments had lightyellow color (HEX:FFFFE0).
It is hard to make difference between unapproved and approved comments with this color.

This plugin changes the background-color to orange [#DD823B] (from WordPress 3.8 Sunrise admin color-scheme), and the author’s name and his comment to white. This makes the comment approving system easier to see on all monitor types.


  • Before (WordPress 3.8)
  • After (WordPress 3.8)


  1. Upload the extracted archive to wp-content/plugins/
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Enjoy!


Why orange design?

This is the more striking.
