Comments Cleaner

This plugin removes all HTML tags, BBCode tags and links from added comments (including link to author's website)

Sometimes there are situations when you want to have your comments completely clean - no HTML, no links. This plugin helps to achieve this - it removes all HTML tags and links (both from comment text and entered in Website field). Additionally it removes BBCode markup (in WordPress it is also used for Shortcodes), if someone tried to use it.

You can remove them permanently when comment is added, or remove them on the fly (without modifying database) when comment is displayed.

You can also configure what exactly you want to remove - e.g. you may want to remove HTML and BBCode tags, but leave link to author website and links entered as plain text in comment.
