I build my custom comments template. And i realised tht edit comment is being done in back-end ( dashbord). Is there any way to enable edit comments in the front-end instead of in admin menu? Would be possible to use the same form as i used for new comment?


If you want to edit comments in the front end. Use this

For default edit comment link,

<?php edit_comment_link(); ?> 
          ( or ) 
<?php edit_comment_link(__('edit comment'), '<p>', '</p>'); ?>

Hook is, apply_filters() Calls 'edit_comment_link' hook on the author email

Let Me know Incase of any issues

  • i dont understand. could you write quick example? i use this function to enable the edit comment but when pressed, the back-end admin editor is being loaded. but my aim is to use the same editor window at front end. – Greg Skala Mar 14 '17 at 19:16
