Awesome! And some feature requests (7 posts)

    This very simply does something I've been wanting for a while.

    A few feature requests:

    1) An edit link in the reported comments view. I usually edit rather than trash inappropriate comments because deleting them messes up threading.

    2) Option to limit the function to registered users (I can probably hack this with S2Member)


    3) Show me the user info for the reporter as well, so I can push back against people who report excessively.

    Thanks again!

    Also, we need a way for the report link to show up even on the bottom level of threaded comments. Since it's filtered onto the reply link, and the bottom level of threaded comments does not have a reply link, we get no report button.

    I'll see if I can swing this, but I'm a novice and not really sure how the way the plugin is written.

    Good ideas, I like all of them and will start to implement them.

    As for the report link not showing up at the bottom level, I'm aware of that bug but I haven't looked into it yet. Feel free to post if you come up with any solution to it.

    So far I hacked your plugin to append the button in the comments_text area instead of reply_link or whatever it's called. This is not a great solution because now the link shows up at the end of the text everywhere, including backend moderation, RSS feeds, etc.

    I see another similar plugin has the same problem. I wonder if there's a way to append a whole new <div> before or after the comment reply link. I'm very new to plugin development so I don't know much about this.

    It would also be nice to have an optional field for filling in a reason for reporting the comment.

    Again I'm very pleased with the basic functionality here. None of the other report plugins work this way. I'd love to see this project expand and would be happy to help however I can. I may ask my programmer to take a shot at adding this features and submitting them as updates here.

    I've just updated to v 1.2 with some new features; being able to edit comments and an option to only let registered users report comments.

    As for the BUG, I haven't found a solution that I'm happy with yet. Adding it to comments_text doesn't look as good as comments_reply_link. I'm gonna try to find a good solution to it next.

    After that I'll add ability to see what user reported the comment and an optional field to add reason for reporting.

    Wonderful! I'm going to keep using the hack for now, because while I agree it doesn't look as good, we have so many threads go down to the last level that I cannot use the plugin any other way.

    I love that you're working on this.
