aBitGone CommentSafe


CommentSafe is a really simple plugin that I’ve written for WordPress. Very simply, it takes a list
of (X)HTML tags – which you can specify through the admin interface – and does one of three things
with those tags, when they’re found in your comments:

  1. Strip tags (example: A <b>bold</b> choice becomes A bold choice – default)
  2. Convert tags (example: A <b>bold</b> choice becomes A &lt;b&gt;bold&lt;/b&gt; choice)
  3. Remove tags and content (example: A <b>bold</b> choice becomes A choice)

The comments are changed before being saved to your WordPress database so that, if you decide to
uninstall or deactivate CommentSafe, your comments will remain sanitised and safe.

For further information and updates, see


  • The CommentSafe administration interface, making it super-easy for you to modify the list of (X)HTML tags you wish you filter and the method you wish to use.


  1. Upload abg-commentsafe.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to ‘abg CommentSafe’ in the ‘Settings’ menu in WordPress and enter the list of (X)HTML tags
    you wish to filter.
  4. Choose a strip method
  5. Update the Tags
