AjaxEditComments.com is open for Business

Downloaded over 180,000 times, Ajax Edit Comments is the most powerful and feature-packed comment editing solution for WordPress.

It is used (albeit with modified versions) on very prominent websites such as Smashing Magazine and TechCrunch.

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.

The Ajax Edit Comments plugin itself will remain GPL. Subscriptions provide the added benefits of automatic upgrades, affiliate opportunities, and priority support.

My support forum will no longer be the place to request support for this plugin. All support requests for Ajax Edit Comments have to be posted at AEC Support Forums.

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.

Ajax Edit Comments updated – Fixes IE bug

Ronald just updated Ajax Edit Comments to fix the really troublesome IE bug where the window just refused to close. You can update it from within WP-Admin directly or download it from the repository.

Ajax Edit Comments allows users and admins to edit comments on a post. Users can edit their own comments for a limited time, while admins can edit all comments.

The plugin has been tested on WordPress 2.8.5 as well. I have it running out here. If you notice any bugs, please report the same in the forum.

Ajax Edit Comments security fix

I recently uploaded a fix for WP Ajax Edit Comments which is a mandatory upgrade.

Allows users and admins to edit comments on a post. Users can edit their own comments for a limited time, while admins can edit all comments.

Rene recently reported a security bug with AEC, where posted content wasn’t being filtered appropriately. I have since uploaded a fix for the plugin and it is highly recommended that you upgrade the plugin asap.

You can upgrade quickly and easily from within your WordPress admin area itself.

Ajax Edit Comments now with Move Comments feature

Ronald has been working to make your favorite plugin even better. After the release last week which added support for deletion requests from your visitors, a brand new feature that allows the admin to move their comments from one post to another.

When you are viewing a post, you can hit the Move button.

You have three options of finding the post you want to move the comment to. One of them is to Move by Title, the other is Move by ID and the last is Move by Post.

Move feature of Ajax Edit Comments

The Move by Title allows you to search the titles of the posts and then select the post you want to move it to. The Move by ID allows you to enter the ID of the post you want to move the comment to. The Move by Post allows you to select from among the latest posts.

So, what do you think about this feature? If you notice any bugs, so let us know.

Ajax Edit Comments 2.3.7.0 released

Ronald has been quick at pushing through three updates to Ajax Edit Comments in the past week.

WP Ajax Edit Comments allows users and admins to edit comments on a post. Users can edit their own comments for a limited time, while admins can edit all comments.

The following are the changes in the three updates.

2.3.7.0

  • Fixed a “delink” bug where the option is still available after the comment has been delinked.

2.3.6.0

  • Added an advanced view to the admin’s edit panel. It allows date editing, and allows you to mark a comment from the edit panel.
  • You can turn off this feature using the admin panel under the Individual Options.

2.3.4.0

  • Added a feature for anonymous users that allows them to request deletion of a comment. Upon request, the comment is placed in the moderation queue and the blog’s admin is sent an e-mail of the request. This feature can be turned off in the admin panel options.

Updated Plugin: WP Ajax Edit Comments

I’ve just released a minor update to WP Ajax Edit Comments.

WP Ajax Edit Comments allows users and admins to edit comments on a post. Users can edit their own comments for a limited time, while admins can edit all comments.

This update adds a much requested feature, viz. the ability to disable AEC on WordPress static pages. By default this has been enabled. You can head over to the options page in WP-Admin and turn it off if you want to.

On other counts, I am looking for icons for AEC. Currently, Ajax Edit Comments 2.0 makes use of the Circular Icons set by Ben Gillbanks. I intend to provide "styles" for AEC, where you can select which set of icons you would like displayed.

So, if you have any suggestions, do comment and let me know.

WP Ajax Edit Comments 2.3.2.0

This is rather quick on the heels of the previous version, however, this version will greatly improve the performance of WP Ajax Edit Comments on your blog. This releases includes fixes that speed up the display and reduce the number of queries to the WordPress database.

You’ll notice a major performance increase especially on pages with a huge number of comments. I still recommend using a caching plugin like WP Super Cache on your blog because it greatly helps reduce the load on your server.

A big thanks to Johan Eenfeldt and cimddwc (Thanks Michael for the link) for providing the fixes that made this release possible.

As usual, you can download the plugin from its page. Current users will be able to upgrade seamlessly from within WP-Admin itself.

Are you interested in becoming a tester for the plugin? Do let me know.

WP Ajax Edit Comments 2.3.0.0 released

Ronald has just uploaded a new version of the highly popular WP Ajax Edit Comments.

This version once again enables comments in the moderation queue to be edited. This has been a much requested feature that we have received and so it’s been turned on once again. In a later version we’ll provide an option in WP-Admin to control this behavior on a site basis.

A few other minor changes have been done for better compatibility with other plugins (hopefully).

So, grab a copy of the plugin while it is still hot. Current users will be able to upgrade seamlessly from within WP-Admin itself.

Looking for Testers for AEC

Many of you may be aware that I have taken over development of WP Ajax Edit Comments from Ronald. I’m pleased that most of the translators have agreed to continue supporting WP Ajax Edit Comments, so it will continue to be distributed in several languages.

As many of you are aware Ajax Edit Comments is an extremely powerful and complicated plugin. While I’m currently doing my best to test every aspect of the same, the testing is still very limited.

What AEC really needs is a group of testers who are willing to run the unstable builds of the plugins on their own blogs and provide feedback / bug reports etc to me.

If you’re interested in becoming a tester please do comment below or contact me. I’ll add you to my mailing list and send you the test builds of the plugin.

I do hope to find at least ten or more testers. I’ll leave it up to you as to where you want to test the plugin, either on test or production blogs.
