I want to prevent other authors from editing other people's comment made in their post.

Does anyone here know how to do this?


Try use the following code in your themes functions.php

// http://scribu.net/wordpress/prevent-blog-authors-from-editing-comments.html
function restrict_comment_editing( $caps, $cap, $user_id, $args ) { 
if ( 'edit_comment' == $cap ) {
        $comment = get_comment( $args[0] );

if ( $comment->user_id != $user_id )
        $caps[] = 'moderate_comments';

   return $caps;

add_filter( 'map_meta_cap', 'restrict_comment_editing', 10, 4 );
