Today’s Sweet Plugin is called Comment Form Quicktags. It gives your readers a little bit of formatting control over their responses. Link, bold, and blockquote buttons are added to the comment forms, for example.. With Quicktags you can even add your own buttons.
The video is embedded at the top of this post’s page, with more about the plugin below.
Comment Form Quicktags
Comment Form Quicktags will add a selection of buttons to your comment forms that will let readers quickly add basic formatting to their responses. It works out of the box, so to speak, but also comes with some customization in a settings page that is pretty cool.
This one seems like a popular technique for adding formatting to the WordPress comment system, but there might be others I don’t know about. Do you allow your readers to format their comments a bit, and if so what do you use?
What’s your favorite plugin to use within your comment system?
