I need a kind of private message in answer/comment for discuss with other moderators without interact with basic user.

I have search a lot but nothing like this.... There is a plugin or something else to implement this function?

I have think to:

  1. make another table in wich save private comment, but then i need a plugin to query and print inside normal answer...
  2. create a plugin to show a_hidden/c_hidden to mod/admin
  3. create a new type for posts table, but then i need to modify core files

Any ideas?

I would also like to use a feature for users to mark comments and answers as private because I use Q2A as a support site and I like users to post private sensible data just for me.

The easiest way would be that of creating an admin only category  where only the admins can access and discuss, maybe linking an "external question" as a reference.

See for instance : http://www.question2answer.org/qa/29188/admin-only-categories

I'm not aware of a ready made plugin that does exactly what you want.

Thks maxjtechno but is not what I need.

In my mind I want a comment that I can post under question "like an alert" for other moderator without the users can see.

I think i have to modify core files, if someone have any idea on the best road to make this...
