Authors can't edit their comments (6 posts)

    Hi,

    my users can't edit their own comments. They neither get "edit_comment_link" displayed nor any options in the backend. I as admin can get both options.

    Is there a way to check if the plugin "role manager" I used a few months (or years?) back and uninstalled then still has some remains messing things up? Any other idea?

    I believe you need to be an editor to edit comments

    you can look in the database with phpmyadmin for role manager leftovers

    Actually, with edit_posts, which is a thing authors can, they should be able to edit their own comments.

    Today I discoverd that users can edit comments they wrote for their own posts, but not the comments written on posts of other users.

    Is that the way it's supposed to be?

    Is there some way to allow them all comments they wrote, no matter if it's on their own posts or not?
