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!

We have a number of super-cool projects going on here at IntenseDebate, and we thought we’d give you a sneak-peek at what’s around the corner.
There is no question about it – localization is by far the most requested feature. We make a habit of listening to our users, and internationalization is almost here! If all goes according to plan, we will be ready to start rounding up multilingual folks to help us translate the IntenseDebate comments section (the bit that appears on your website) within a few weeks. Keep your eyes peeled on this blog for a call for volunteers.
Admin Comment Editing
Again, ask and yee shall receive. We’re in the final stages of testing a new feature that will allow you (if you’re a site admin of course) to edit the details of all comments on all posts on your site. No more letting your users run wild, unless you’re into that sort of thing.
WordPress Plugin Innovations: SyncRepair
One last tidbit that you may have heard on the support forums or around the place; we’re in the final stages of testing our sexy new self-healing comment sync, a.k.a, SyncRepair. SyncRepair looks for discrepancies between the comments stored in your IntenseDebate account and those stored in WordPress. If it finds anything that doesn’t look right, it’ll re-sync those comments and get you back in good shape.
This is only the tip of the iceberg! We’re working on our opus. Details to come…
What do you think? We love your feedback.
