Rapid Comment Reply

Description

Reworking of WordPress’s frontend comment-reply.js to be unobtrusive. Refer to trac ticket #31590.

I am writing this as a plugin for the purposes of dogfooding, I hope to contribute the changes back to core.

Browser support

All browsers support comment replies using this plugin.

Visitors using older browsers will use a non-JavaScript fallback when replying to comments. In practical terms, on most sites the fallback will be limited to visitors using IE8 or earlier.

Contributing

Development of this plugin is done on Github. Pull requests and issue reports are welcome.
