[resolved] Edit comment user confusion and problem (3 posts)

    Hi,

    Before I make a review I woluld like to share a user experiance angle.

    Admin

    Select comments of which statuses will be available for moderation on the front-end of your site

    Perfect BUT,

    When a user - not logged in, not member - try to edit, you get redirected to the WP login page. A nice ajax message should instead be shown at the same place as the validation messages.

    Please register to edit your comment.

    When a registered subscriber edit the comment, the low level user can mark

    • Approved
    • Pending
    • Spam

    This is silly, or do I miss something here? Is this just a link to the admin role access?

    If so:

    A wishlist is to edit in place, refill the comment form, instead of going to dashboard panels. No pupup, just populate the standard form. That would make this plug complete.

    Please Keep the reload after succefull validation on submit comments. Sometimes ajax is NOT the best user experiance solution for everything.

    This plug does it job, validate the missing part of wp core, and offers a user edit function. The components are there/ idea and fills the lack. Just make the simple really god all the way. Then this is a VERY useful plugin, to implement direct on new wp installs, less is more.

    This seems like a new plugin, and needs some feedback. Thanks for all your time and sharing plugins to the free world of open source.

    Hi Jonas,
    Thanks for your suggestions.

    When a user - not logged in, not member - try to edit, you get redirected to the WP login page

    - you have either JS disabled or JS errors on your site. This is for safety reasons - if JS and Ajax are not available, the edit option (and other) behave just like standard Edit link (checks permissions, redirect to admin, etc.)

    When a registered subscriber edit the comment, the low level user can mark

    - it shouldn't be like that. In our test enviroment and a couple of sites a subscriber with JS disabled can only Edit a comment (with a link to admin). If JS is enabled editing works inline for a limited time - Time remaining and counter should show up.

    Keep the reload after succefull validation

    - that's exactly how we did it. Your perfectly right, as many other comments plugins rely on that.

    If checking your JS settings in browser and JS conflicts on your site won't solve the issues you mentioned, please visit our forum and post a private reply with some access to your site, so we could take a look.

    Jonas,
    One more thing about the subscriber with moderation links available (Approve, Spam, Delete).

    Ajaxed Comments does some tricks with edit_comment capability (to allow front end editing even for not logged in users), but we do not touch moderate_comments. However the appearance of moderation links relies on moderate_comments capability - if a user has that cap (your theme or other plugins could have assigned it) those links will be availabe. That is exactly what WordPress itself does in the back-end.
