ExpressionEngine coder extraordinaire Paul Burdick has answered some long standing feature requests with a nifty new plugin that allows members to edit their comments after they’ve already submitted them. This plugin is called, oddly enough, Edit Comments and it does its magic using AJAX to keep things simple.
I’ve already added it to the templates here with a time limit of 60 minutes to make your changes in. This is to allow you to correct your “oh shit” mistakes that you noticed after hitting the submit button, but I don’t want comments to be editable forever. Right now the comment box it puts up is kinda small for my tastes so I’ll look into seeing if I can enlarge it, but it seems to work so try it out and let me know what you think.
