Absolute Comments allows you to reply to comments right from the email notification. It also automatically fills the reply with the commenter's name (so if you reply to Joe, your comment will be prefilled with "Joe » " for your convenience)

Absolute Comments

There's no setup, no setting. Just upload, activate and forget.

Download Absolute Comments

This plugin is for WordPress 3.1+.

Download the plugin :
ozh-absolute-comments.zip
Extract and upload to your blog, preserving directory structure if any.

Older version

Absolute Comments used to be a feature packed plugin, back in the WordPress 2.x days. WordPress 2.7 implemented most of these much needed features (reply to comments from the Edit Comments page, those stuff you don't even believe weren't always part of WordPress). Older versions are still available but totally unsupported, obviously.

If you like this plugin and you feel it enhances your blogging and community managing experiences, please make my day and simply blog about it to let your readers know about it. They might like it too:)

    Ah, this plugin is like a dream come true. I have just one request/suggestion. Could you also add a feature so that when you respond to a guest's comment your response is emailed to them? Right now I use the comment responder because not everyone checks back for responses or can find their way. :)

    Hmm, hold the phone. I'm getting the following error when making a comment in the admin area:

    1. Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /home/electro/public_html/wp-content/plugins/ozh-absolute-comments/includes/_latest_comment.php on line 23

    Permissions problem of some sort?

    Plugin sounds great – I liked the idea of the other comments manager plugin but the separate page just didn't make sense to me.

    Unfortunately I can't seem to post any comments. If I use the inline posting I get the error…

    "Error (duplicate content or posting too quickly)"

    If I post a quick reply I get the error

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: add_options_page() in /home/.oedipus/binarysun/binarymoon/wp-content/plugins/wp-contact-form/wp-contactform.php on line 342

    so I wonder if there is some sort of plugin conflict going on somewhere?

    Would love some help so I can get this working :)

    Thanks in advance

    hello ozh

    thanks for this plugin even he dosn't work on my blog (wp 2.2.3).

    i got everytime a strange error message on my browser.

    "The page at http://blog.superdesign.ch says:

    Ok – that fixes it. Now I need to find a new contact form plugin.

    BTW I am from England but your flags say Italy. Maybe you need to update your IP database :)

    Must admit the second error gave me the impression that plugin was the issue. Didn't realise it was such a bad one though – the advantage (disadvantage?) of plugins.

    Thanks

    Chris » there's no "Reply" link to comments in moderation because, well, I thought it would be mostly useless :) If you want to add it, it's pretty simple, add the following at the end of the main file:

    1. add_filter('comment_moderation_text', 'wp_ozh_cqr_email', 10, 2);

    I may add this as an option in next release.

    Nice plugin, Ozh. I've been looking for something like this for a while. If I may, I'd like to suggest to kux and Ben that they check out Mike Cherim's "Secure & Accessible PHP Contact Form" plugin for WordPress over at http://green-beast.com/blog/?page_id=136

    I'm not sure right now how well it works with your plugin, but if I get some free time this weekend, I'll be more than happy to take the two out for a test spin on a blogging resource site I'm in the process of developing and let you know how well the two work together.

    said, on 09/Nov/07 at 5:10 pm # :

    Hey, Ozh,

    For some reason this plugin is putting a terrible strain on my database. When I add a new reply comment from the admin panel, it takes upwards of 30-60 seconds to post, and in the meantime, locks down any page calls on my site until the plugin releases the database again. I don't know if anyone else is having this problem, but it's terribly inefficient for me. With Better Comments Manager, the submit-to-post time on comment replies was virtually nil, so I'm not really sure how your plugin queries the DB differently. Just something I wanted to point out for your investigation, in case it's a more widespread problem than with just me.

    Dan Schulz » thanks for the contact form suggestion. It shouldn't conflict with my plugin, just as any plugin shouldn't conflict with another. The problem with WP-ContactForm is a terribly inefficient code which gets executed no matter what page you're on.

    Just a thought… Is there any way to not send email notifications for comments written by the author/admin? There used to be a separate plugin for this (can't remember the name) but it had spotty success.

    Just curious if this would even be possibly by your plugin.

    wrote, on 09/Nov/07 at 7:59 pm # :

    Jim » when the plugin adds a comment it's just like posting in the regular comment form on the page post. It takes as many queries, no more, no less. Better Comments Manager does roughly the same thing, there shouldn't be any noticeable difference between both.
