"Save comment" feature/plugin? (3 posts)

    A "save comment" feature/plugin would facilitate reader participation. No more accidental losses of paragraphs of text, and no more rushing to post a comment. Would anyone be willing to design and create such a plugin?

    You might need to expand on your idea.

    For instance, how would the save comment plugin/feature work?
    How would it differ from clicking "Submit Comment"?

    I know this is old, but I am in need of similar functionality. What I believe the original poster was requesting was some way to store the comment content just in case something goes wrong with submitting the comment. For example, if the blog requires name and password and I don't provide them. When I go back in my browser, my comment is often lost. In my particular case, my plugin allows OpenID to be used for authentication. If that authentication fails for whatever reason, the comment is lost.

    The easiest solution would be to store the content in a browser cookie or PHP session, and then restore the textarea content when they return to the page. Ideally, this should be core functionality for WordPress due to the require name/email option in WP.
