    Hey all,

    Releasing a new plugin, one that's been requested many many times: Edit comments. It allows users to edit their comments up to 30 (configurable) minutes after they made them. Enjoy

    This looks like the begining of a very cool plugin!

    Do you think it could be cookie based? Or at least have the option or something else besides IP based?

    Thanks again Andrew for this plugin; very useful!

    "Do you think it could be cookie based? Or at least have the option or something else besides IP based?"

    Is there any reason why IP checking shouldn't be used? As the editable phase is transient in nature, IP checking would appear to be the best approach as a commentor is unlikely to be using a different IP address within the 30 minute threshold.

    Thanks jalenack, I have just started to use this plugin/hack. I too was wondering about cookie authentication along with the time out, as the IP checking could allow users to edit comments other than their own on home/corporate/educational networks. I know my school only has two WAN IP's for the hundreds of computers on the student LAN. Same with home networks -- only one WAN IP for however many computers on the LAN.

    Perhaps a there is a way to integrate it with the WordPress user cookie?

    Thanks a lot.
