This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Comment Saver


Comment Saver temporarily stores the content of comments in a browser cookie
just in case something goes wrong while submitting the comment. For example,
if the user forgot to include their name and email address and those fields are
required, the comment may be lost on some browsers. When the user returns to
the comment form, Comment Saver will automatically populate the comment box if
the cookie is still set. It will remove the temporary cookie once the comment
has been successfully submitted, or after one hour.


This plugin follows the standard WordPress installation method:

  1. Upload the comment-saver folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. That’s it… there’s nothing to configure
