Simple Comment Editing

Simple Comment Editing for your website.

Why doesn't this plugin come with any styles?

It's impossible to style an inline comment editor for every theme. We've included basic HTML markup that is easily stylable to fit your theme.

Where are the options?

No options :) - Just simple comment editing.

How do you adjust the comment time?

Place and edit the following into your theme's functions.php file:

//Simple Comment Editing
add_filter( 'sce_comment_time', 'edit_sce_comment_time' );
function edit_sce_comment_time( $time_in_minutes ) {
    return 60;

How do you change the loading Image?

//Simple Comment Editing
add_filter( 'sce_loading_img', 'edit_sce_loading_img' );
function edit_sce_loading_img( $default_url ) {
    return 'http://domain.com/new_loading_image.gif';

How do you disable the delete comment functionality?

//Simple Comment Editing
add_filter( 'sce_allow_delete', '__return_false' );

Do you work with other plugins?

Yes, the plugin will work with WP-Ajaxify-Comments (http://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-ajaxify-comments/)

Simply enable WP-Ajaxify-Comments, get it working per their settings, and add the Simple Comment Editing callback in the plugin's options.

The callback is:


I want to style the editing interface. Where do I start?
