Whisper Comment


Whisper Comment is a WordPress plugin for commenters to control comment visibility for other viewers. A ‘whisper’ is a comment that is only displayed for targeted viewers. Viewers who are not authorised to view the whisper, will only see the replacement text instead.

Inspired by the original Whisper plugin, the new Whisper Comment is a brand new version for WordPress 2.7.

Other than English, the plugin has been translated to Traditional Chinese (Chinese plugin homepage). If you have any questions or suggestions, please leave comments through the plugin forum or at the plugin homepages.

Will whisper comments be hidden in comment feeds?
