Filosofo Comments Preview

Comments Preview

What is Filosofo Comments Preview?

Filosofo Comments Preview is a WordPress plugin that lets you preview comments on your blog before you submit them. It should work with just about every WordPress theme right out of the box.

Can I see it in action?

Yes—here. Try previewing and posting a comment on my test page.

Will it work on my blog?

I’ve tested it successfully on WordPress blogs of version 2.0 or newer, including the cutting-edge alpha versions of WordPress.

What are some of its features?

  • Works with WordPress’s threaded comments (as of WordPress version 2.7)
  • Extremely simple to install: just upload and activate.
  • Easy configuration in the administrative control panel.
  • The preview looks as it would look if published, according to your settings (i.e. smileys, profanity edited, etc.)
  • Works with “pop-up” comments.
  • Flexible API allows for easy customization for those so inclined.
