Configuration Options

Comment Edit Lite (formerly Simple Comment Editing) is famous for its zero-configuration setup. By default, users can edit comments for 5 minutes with no need to set any admin settings.

Comment Edit Lite does have some base options, which we'll go over below.

Adjusting the Comment Timer

You can edit the timer length in minutes

The default edit time is 5 minutes. You can adjust this to what you are comfortable with.

Please note that unlimited comment editing for logged-in users is possible with Comment Edit Pro.

Avoid Long Timers: Comment Editing is cookie-based and should expire in a reasonable timeframe to avoid inadvertent edits and/or modified replies.
