In response to suggestions from a site visitor (for which, thanks) I have set up a couple of additional plug-ins on the site.
If you spot an error in your comment, or you want to delete it, you now have five minutes to do so; selecting ‘Click to Edit’ will give you the option to amend and save your comment or (using the ‘Delete’ button to the right of the screen) to remove it completely.
Should you need more than five minutes to fix a problem, I would recommend copying the text of your initial comment, deleting the comment in its entirety, and pasting the text back into the comment box so you can make the necessary changes at your leisure.
Please let me know if you experience any problems when using this feature. Should you want to amend a comment after the countdown has finished, please add a reply to your own comment asking me to make a specific change (or to delete the earlier comment) – once I have carried out your instruction I will delete your request.
Notification of Replies to Comments
When posting a comment, you now have the option of checking the box labelled ‘Email me when someone replies to my comment’. You should then receive an email whenever your comment receives a reply. I have done some basic testing, and it seems to work as intended, but feedback would be appreciated. At the moment the box is unchecked by default, but that can be changed (if posters would prefer) so that you would uncheck it if you don’t wish to be notified by email. I’ll be guided by public opinion.
