[resolved] WP3.5: Why do comments need to be plain text? Or am I missing something? (5 posts)

    I am relatively new to WordPress - but trying to figure out the commenting ad what the best practice is.

    My site is very media centric - and I want to give my users the ability to respond to my posts with links to photos and videos. Is this not a good idea?

    The out of the box Visual Editor - I got the latest WP 3.5. and I am very happy with the Visual editor based on TinyMCE. However, this only works for admin users for editing posts.

    I want a cut down version of this - just for comments.

    Is this doable without plugin's? I looked through all the settings and the only option I found was 'Disable the visual editor when writing' - but this is not related to commenting.

    I saw some third party plugins description's - but they replaces the editor that WP comes with with an older editor based on an older version on Tiny MCE. - which I don't want to do.

    People can post links in the comments section as well as some html.
