Comment Deletion

Comment Deletion Options
Sometimes comments are left in haste or in the moment, and the user would simply like to remove the comment rather than edit it. Allowing users to delete their comments is a nice way of self-policing their comments.

Enabling Comment Deletion

Allow Comment Deletion Option
Comment deletion is enabled by default
When a user edits a comment, they will see a button allowing them to delete their own comment.
Comment with Delete Button
When a user chooses to delete their own comment, a confirmation is shown.

Delete Only Option

Allow "Delete Only" Option
The "Delete Only" option is designed to only show the Delete option when editing a comment. The Edit button isn't visible, but a Delete option instead.

By default, a confirmation is shown to the user to prevent accidental clicks.
