Editing comments

No primary category set

Just a quick note to say that as requested by Lynne, Jade and others, it’s now possible to edit comments. You have two three minutes (approximately) from leaving your comment in which you can edit it: after that time, the edit function will not be available.

Please feel free to have a play with this function in the comments on this post ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you have any problem with it, PLEASE PLEASE leave me a comment including what error message you got, if any, and exactly what you saw and how that differed from what you were expecting to see. Also let me know what browser you’re using. (Mac people, that goes double for you; my current Mac testing facilities are horribly out of date, so I’m relying on you ๐Ÿ™‚ )

  1. It works, the 2 minute deadline adds a littkle extra panic โ— , but it works, well done Biddy! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Im using firefox, on vista. and you have to actually click on the text, but the cursor doesnt change to a hand “link” or anything so was not sure it was gonna work but it did.

  2. 2 minutes can be changed if it’s not long enough – but I want to keep it short enough that people can’t (for example) see that a later poster has disagreed with them, and go back and change the post based on that. It should be used for clarification, spelling, etc., not for changing tack completely.

    I should also say the world’s biggest thank you to Ronald from the Reader Appreciation Project for the lovely, lovely plugin. All WP users should be using this one IMHO.

  3. hmm, I agree it would be unproductive to have everyone being able to edit and re-edit their view point to make the following posts seem out of date. I think that maybe 3 mins would take some of the stress out of it?

  4. Shush, you’re here expressing an opinion, which wins you a lot of points ๐Ÿ˜†

    It’s really down to the speed of the conversation. 3 mins ought to be short enough that no one jumps in and responds immediately, but it’s not always that way… we’ll just have to stop mentioning feedback and eBid ๐Ÿ˜†

  5. 3 mins is fine for the sort of “oh my god I didn’t half go on” that I get within roughly 15 seconds of pressing “send”…. ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ™„

  6. Jade, Biggles doesn’t want to post his eBay ID on here, which is fair enough. Keeping one’s head down has a lot to be said for it ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Yeah, the green is allowed so long as it’s with the nice navy I put it with. It’s the pukey orange he’s not allowed to use any more ๐Ÿ˜†

  8. He he, funny thing is I didn’t change the colours for the benefit of buyers, the old yucky ones worked just fine for years – it was done for my own non-sales benefit ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
