With utilities like frontend editing and comment shortcuts, managing comments is easier and more intuitive. You can close or open comments from the admin bar, moderate comments in place, and quickly view comments that need approval.

You can enable comments exactly where you choose, close comments on posts with no recent activity, and even turn off new comments if your site is under attack.

Why Choosing Comment Edit Pro Makes All The Difference

The Plugin Works with Native Comments

A lot of comment plugins take over the native WordPress commenting system and break compatibility for a lot of third-party commenting plugins. Comment Edit Pro works with the native commenting system, so it won’t mess up your existing commenting system.

You’ll receive Great Support and Continuous Updates

Comment Edit Pro is updated frequently, and you can expect great support from DLX Plugins when you need it. Popular features such as editing WooCommerce reviews and a ConvertKit newsletter integration were created from customer requests.

We’re Committed to Comments

Owner and developer Ronald Huereca has been developing WordPress comment plugins since 2007 and currently maintains Comment Edit Core, a free plugin with over 2,000 active users. He’s obsessed with comments and making the lives of those using them easier and more productive.
