Plugin so users can edit their comments (like DIGG) (1 post)

    Back in August of 2005, Andrew Sutherland wrote a great edit comments plugin. I just learned about the plugin a couple of days ago and after playing with it a bit, I decided to make some mods. The way Andrews’s original plugin works is to allow users to edit their comments for a certain amount of time (up to 30 minutes) after they post their comment by adding an edit link to the comment.

    I really wanted this functionality, but I also wanted it to act like the the edit comment feature at DIGG, where a javascript countdown is displayed. So, I took a little time and sort of ajaxified Andrew’s plugin so that it displays a countdown. When the counter reaches zero, the counter and the edit link both go away.
