Downloaded over 180,000 times, Ajax Edit Comments is the most powerful and feature-packed comment editing solution for WordPress.
In March 2009, I took over the development of AEC from Ronald, the original author. After a few months of development, or lack thereof, Ronald returned as co-author of this highly popular plugin.
Since its birth in 2007, AEC has been available for free and the current version available via the WordPress repository is 3.1. This is the last available version available for free.
AEC has survived till date on a donation business model basis. Unfortunately, this model is a complete failure since donations are rare. However, support and feature requests are not.
So, as of this week Ronald and me have converted Ajax Edit Comments into a subscription based plugin to centralize all support in order to provide the highest user experience and satisfaction.
Ajax Edit Comments subscriptions start at $50 a year for 5 sites. But, for a limited period (until January 31st, 2010) you can get the subscription at an up-to 80% discount! Any subscriptions purchased during the promotion will renew at the promotional price for the life of the subscription.
