    Actually, what I'd prefer is if we made the comment itself clickable, rather than add an edit link. In Flickr, for example, if you want to edit the text under a photo, you click the paragraph and it turns into a text box containing the previous text. Then you simply edit it, and click out of the box to save your changes. Couldn't we do something like this relatively easily? We could even have a Save button show up under the text field if you like that better than clicking outside the box.

    I agree as well. Before I ever even tried to edit a comment in WP 2.5, I saw several questions in the forums and such, so I knew how to do it. But still, the first time I went to edit a comment I was totally lost and almost forgot what I was trying to do. I tend to rely on links or buttons that contain the word of what I want to do. If things get too intuitive and not at all labeled, then I'm sure there will be people with slightly different intuitions who have a really hard time finding things.

    Agreed. I can't believe that I had to go to the FAQ just to edit.

    When this many people are this confused, and start thinking that the ability to edit comments must be dependent on what theme you're using, it ain't a feature, it's a bug. And it's a sad indictment of the WP development process that the original poster had to present this bugfix as an 'idea' rather than filing it in Trac.

  6. Well, I actually thought the ability to edit comments had gone away.

    A more intuitive method of editing comments may be to do it inline, like the page slug is on the post edit page.

    Completely agreed!

    I can't believe I had to do a web search just to figure out how to edit a comment in WordPress.
