Modern Admin Comments by WPMarmite


Enhance your administrator/moderator experience in the comments administration pages with a rich text editor.

Comment moderation shouldn’t look like coding. Also, many bloggers don’t know how to deal with HTML tags…

This simple WordPress plugin fixes this by replacing the quicktags comment editor with a simple TinyMCE rich text editor under the:

  • Reply link,
  • Quick Edit link,
  • Edit Comment page.

It also adds a handy ‘Code’ button if you wish to insert inline code in your replies.

No options. No settings pages.

Just activate it, and enjoy your new comment editing features!


Modern Plugins is a new brand founded by WPMarmite, the WordPress blog where you can find in-depth WordPress tutorials and reviews to help beginners build their website.


  • The Quick Edit / Quick Reply rich text editor
  • The rich text editor on the individual comment page


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress


Does the plugin register TinyMCE on the front end comment form?

No. This plugins only enhances the administration experience.

Bonjour, c'est un plugin excellent que j’utilise depuis sa sortie. Seul souci : depuis la mise à jour hier vers la version 5.5 de WordPress il ne fonctionne plus sur mes deux sites. On ne peut plus répondre aux commentaires depuis l'espace Admin, j'ai donc dû le désactiver en attendant qu'un éventuel correctif arrive. :o) Edit : Encore un souci ce coup-ci avec la 5.5.1, je désinstalle, dommage.

Hyper pratique pour mes clients qui ne savaient pas trop à quoi les codes HTML servent. Merci !
