Introducing Admin Comment Editing

Brilliant comments have been submitted across IntenseDebate.  But once in a blue moon someone submits a great comment that’s perfect except there’s a typo or a curse word containing non-alphabetic ch@racter$ that slipped through your profanity filter!  Unfortunately when this happened the only available options were to leave the comment up or delete it.  Until now…

We’re extremely excited to introduce the latest enhancement to your IntenseDebate comments, Admin Comment Editing.

Now you can edit the details of all comments on all posts on your site (if you’re a site admin of course).  No more letting your users run wild, unless you’re into that sort of thing. ;-)

Comment Edit links are located in two different places in your account at IntenseDebate.com: your Moderation page, and your Comment History page (for editing comments that have already been posted).  If you are using our WordPress Plugin, you will find a link to edit comments in your WordPress admin panel.

Please note: you will not be able to edit user info for authenticated comments (like those posted using an IntenseDebate, Twitter, or Facebook account).

We built this feature based on your feedback, so keep it coming.  We’ve always got an eye out for cool ideas and we’re always listening, so please feel free to share your thoughts with us.  If you haven’t given IntenseDebate a try yet, there’s no better time than now.  Get started!

  3. Hmm, does it make it obvious when a comment has been edited by an admin?

  5. Sadly, after the recent Disqus revamp, I just don't see the point of staying with intense debate – Disqus has better features, performs better etc etc

    Someone tell me why I should stay with intense debate..?

  6. There is no doubt in my mind that IntenseDebate is a superior comment system, and you should be confident in our ability to deliver. As part of Automattic we have serious engineering talent on our backend, which includes the same infrastructure team as WordPress.com. We are constantly rolling out new code and enhancements, and while they may be quieter (PR-wise) than one product revamp release, they are significant and innovative.

    I'm sorry to hear that you encountered performance issues. I'd love to take a look and correct the issue. Please email me at support@intensedebate.com.

    We welcome your feedback in regards to features. We're always on the lookout for cool ideas, and if there is enough demand or if it's just an awesome idea we'll check it out and get it on our roadmap. Thanks!

  7. There's no message displayed. Our implementation mirrors WordPress.

  8. Automattic is the only reason I am using IntenseDebate over Disqus. I am hoping to see the features offered by the competition at least.

  9. That is a great feature; very glad to have it. How is the progress in working out bugs so that I can retrieve the hundreds of old comments that were deleted when I installed Intense Debate?

    Thanks!

  14. Can you please email me at support@intensedebate.com? I'd like to explore some possible options with you. Thanks! :-)

    Comment by Michael Koenig — September 9, 2009 @ 9:17 pm
  15. What do you have in mind?

    Comment by Michael Koenig — September 9, 2009 @ 9:17 pm
  16. i guess comments posted about a post on twitter on the comment section? i think disqus does that already. :)

  17. I'm wondering why admins cannot see commenters IPs in the edit panel. IP are very useful to me to recognize trolls & impersonators.

  18. Thanks for the feedback Frank. We're taking a look.

    Comment by Michael Koenig — September 10, 2009 @ 5:15 am
  19. Glad to contribute :)
    It would be nice to have a "edit button" below comments, near "block ip" and "delete".

    Comment by Francesco Frank — September 10, 2009 @ 8:46 am
  20. Yep, that's on our list! :-)
