Reviews

It works perfectly.

It installed well and turns html tags into plain text, so I love it, and it’s compatible up to the latest version. I don’t know what version I have because I am not shown that, only “get version 4.8.2,” so who knows. I do wish it would remove the encouraging text next to the comment box that says “Hey! You can use < strong > < em > blahblah and all kinds of < blockquote >,” because I don’t want people entering anything weird into the comment box, the text is way too much and it didn’t look good, but I fixed with css, since there’s no other way to easily fix it without tampering with core files or making a new child theme.

It works

Simple plugin to strip out the HTML in comments without editing the core files. It does just that.
