How to Allow Users to Edit their Comments in WordPress

Have you wanted to edit a comment you just left on a site? Maybe for correcting a spelling or grammar error or an unfinished comment? It happens to many people and some site owners want to give the option to edit the comments at least for a short time. In this video, we'll show you how to allow users to easily edit their comments in WordPress for a short time.

This video brought to you by WPForms, the most beginner friendly WordPress form plugin, take a look at their site here:

For this tutorial we will be using the Simple Comment Editing plugin found below:

Once you install and activate the plugin, you can go under Settings, Simple Comment Editing to customize the settings. The setting that is offered by default would be how long users have to edit or delete their comments and for this, we would recommend a value of 30 or less.

With that set up, when users add a comment there will be a link beneath it to edit their comment with options to change or delete their comment.
