Is there a way to check if a comment was modified so I can display a modified/edited tag? I can't seem to find anything anywhere or anyone asking about this.

Also it doesn't look like the modified date is stored in the object...

WP_Comment Object
(
    [comment_ID] => 47
    [comment_post_ID] => 1742
    [comment_author] => deleted
    [comment_author_email] => deleted
    [comment_author_url] => deleted
    [comment_author_IP] => deleted
    [comment_date] => 2017-04-29 02:40:59
    [comment_date_gmt] => 2017-04-29 09:40:59
    [comment_content] => test
    [comment_karma] => 0
    [comment_approved] => 1
    [comment_agent] => deleted
    [comment_type] => 
    [comment_parent] => 0
    [user_id] => 1
    [children:protected] => Array
        (
        )

    [populated_children:protected] => 1
    [post_fields:protected] => Array
        (
            [0] => post_author
            [1] => post_date
            [2] => post_date_gmt
            [3] => post_content
            [4] => post_title
            [5] => post_excerpt
            [6] => post_status
            [7] => comment_status
            [8] => ping_status
            [9] => post_name
            [10] => to_ping
            [11] => pinged
            [12] => post_modified
            [13] => post_modified_gmt
            [14] => post_content_filtered
            [15] => post_parent
            [16] => guid
            [17] => menu_order
            [18] => post_type
            [19] => post_mime_type
            [20] => comment_count
        )

You should be able to do this fairly simply by hooking to the edit_comment action and saving the modified date using update_comment_meta:

add_action('edit_comment', 'my_comment_modified_date', 10, 2);
function my_comment_modified_date($comment_ID, $data) {
    update_comment_meta($comment_ID, 'modified_date', time());
}
  • I kept looking at the comment object, but then realized it was recalled using get_comment_meta – gavsiu Apr 1 '18 at 18:18
