  • What is the minimum WordPress version we can use this plugin on?

WordPress 3.1 or greater

  • I installed the plugin and the edit buttons aren't shown or the colorbox popup is off

Roughly 90% of the issues Ajax Edit Comments experiences is with multiple versions of jQuery running. Check your page source, and if you have multiple copies of jQuery being inserted, this is likely the issue.

The most common culprit is the theme in the header.php area. Please refrain from hard-coding in scripts and use wp_enqueue_script('jquery') before the wp_head() call.

The most common colorbox conflict is when there is another lightbox plugin that uses their own version of colorbox. You can disable Ajax Edit Comments' version in the plugin settings.

  • Can I customize the CSS for the plugin?

Yes, you can do that through the Appearance tab in the plugin settings. From there, you can override the CSS and save your custom changes.

  • What is the De-link feature?

If a user posts a comment, but includes a rather spammy link as their URL, you can click the De-link button to remove the person's link.v

  • What does the "Move Comment" feature do?

Sometimes users leave a comment on the wrong post. With the "Move Comment" feature, you can select the comment, and move the comment to the correct post. You can do this by searching by the post title, the post ID, or by browsing your recent posts. Searching by Post Title and Post ID only shows the first five results. Browsing by posts should allow you access to all of your posts.

  • What is the "Request Deletion" feature?

The "Request Deletion" feature is for anonymous users who leave comments. Sometimes a user has left a comment and would rather have it deleted than edit it. Call it buyer's remorse.

Once the user requests deletion, the comment is automatically "unapproved", the user is stripped of editing rights, and the admin of the blog is sent an e-mail of the deletion request. The admin can then decide whether to approve, edit, or delete the comment.
