Comment Hacks


Make comments management easier by applying the simple hacks Joost has gathered over the years.

Este plugin añade algunas pequeñas mejoras el núcleo de comentarios de WordPress para hacerlos más llevaderos:

  • Correos electrónicos de aviso de comentarios más limpios.
  • The option to enforce a comment policy: just create a comment policy page, toggle the option on and select it, and
    commenters will have to accept your comment policy before being able to comment.
  • The option to forward comments to an email address (for instance for your support team) and then trash them.
  • La opción de rechazar comentarios que tengan menos de una cierta longitud.
  • The option to redirect first time commenters to a “thank you” page.
  • Un campo de texto en la pantalla de edición de comentarios para cambiar el ID del comentario superior.
  • Enlaces en la sección de comentarios de administración para enviar correos electrónicos a comentaristas concretos.
  • Un botón en la barra de herramientas de WP para enviar un correo electrónico a todos los que comenten en una entrada.
  • Añade una opción de asociación de comentarios. Esto añade un desplegable en los ajustes de comentarios de una entrada, permitiendo asociar los correos electrónicos del comentario a otro usuario.

See the screenshots to get an even better idea of the plugins’ functionality.

I am sorry to leave you a 1 star, but your plugin does not work. Plus there is no instructions on how to use this plugin. I have click on the email icon a lot and nothing happens. The link looks like this (not putting my real email here) Okay now what? If you can tell me how this plugin works and I can get to work, this would be wonderful but if not then I will leave my review. Thank you

No warnings when the comment is too long. Someone could spend an hour writing a comment and then get the message that their comment is too long. It would be nice if, when someone reached the limit, a warning is given (Hey, you’ve reached your limit) No information given after the fact. For example, if I’m 1000 characters over the limit it’d be nice to get a message that says, “You’re 1000 characters over the limit,” instead of, “Your comment is too long. Try again.” or whatever it says. Great idea but not a good implementation.
