Comment Edit Pro 3.0 has been released with Cloudflare Turnstile and Webhooks. There are also numerous bug fixes and updates, which I’ll go over shortly. Let’s start with Turnstile.
Cloudflare Turnstile integration
Cloudflare Turnstile is an alternative to reCAPTCHA 3 and is a non-interactive captcha replacement.
You do not need to be hosted with Cloudflare to use this spam protection mechanism.
If you’re not keen on using Google reCAPTCHA 3, then Turnstile is a worthy alternative.
A powerful new feature for Comment Edit Pro is that of Webhooks.
You can now ping a webhook whenever a comment is posted. This opens the door wide open for third-party integrations, including Zapier, which integrates with dozens of services.
A lot of work has gone into the Webhooks integration and I hope you find it easy to use and configure.
Admin panel restructure
The admin panel has a better home screen. Comment Editing has been moved to its own tab. The home screen now lists all of the major features for a better onboarding experience.
A license status also shows at the very top of the home screen so you know you’re all set license-wise.
Avatars now have Gravatar fallback
One feature request I received was to allow Gravatars and Avatars to work together.
If enabled, a Gravatar will show if a user chooses not to set a custom avatar.
Comment Edit Pro is now stand-alone
Comment Edit Pro no longer needs Comment Edit Lite to be installed to work. Comment editing is now optional if you need the features of Comment Edit Pro, but do not necessarily need the editing features. This opens the gates of what Comment Edit Pro can be capable of, which I hope it will be of many useful comment utilities and features.
The documentation has been overhauled
The Comment Edit Pro documentation has been overhauled and has been updated to reflect Comment Edit Pro 3.0.
What’s next for Comment Edit Pro
I hope to introduce some tools that will help admins manage comments better. Stay tuned.
