Ajax Force Comment Preview

Visitors to your site are forced to preview their comment prior to submitting it.

The plugin works like TextPattern's built-in "force comment preview" feature by forcing your commenters to preview their comments prior to submission. In addition this plugin is AJAX enabled so the user does not have to reload the page to preview his/her comment. Here are the key benefits of having this plugin enabled.

  1. Comments quality will increase as users will be forced to preview his/her comment before submitting it. Previewed comments are sent through WordPress' various filters so that the user can see exactly how his/her comment will appear after it is submitted.

  2. Spambots will not be able post comments unless it actually tries to "preview" the comment. When a preview is requested, a nonce key is generated and returned along with the preview. This nonce key is then required to be sent back to the server during comment submission. So in order to submit a comment, the spambot would have to use javascript to request a comment preview prior to submitting the comment. Most spambots do not care to preview so this offers some level of spam protection.
