this is my problem,

  • A node is in unpublished state
  • The "View own unpublished content" permission is set
  • The node author posted a comment on the node, but the comment is not getting rendered in the node page
  • The super admin user though can see the comment.

Is this normal in Drupal 7? If so, how can I make those comments visible for the node author?

Hope I can explain my problem, thanks...

  • Something like drupal.org/project/su_comments maybe?

  • Nope, i dont think so, this module is for published node with anonymous user comments/unpublished comments. But my requirement is for unpublished content bt with comment from the author of that node. Commented May 20, 2014 at 14:40

I vaguely remember I had once an issue with viewing unpublished content and the view_unpublished module offered me a better granularity that solved my issue.

Otherwise I would say creating a view showing comments in relation with the node, using a contextual filter nid, and without the filter "content: published" might help.

  • The module did the trick. Would u believe, i ran thru that module before like 4-5 times, bt nowhere in their documentation is it written that it also makes the comments visible. So I never thought of installing it. :P But suggested by u, i tried the module nevertheless, and mereley granting the permission for that to see the unpublished node-type did it. Thanks...

  • Cool, when I used it the first time I had a visibility issue as well and tried it hopelessly and it worked too. Good you got it.
