I have tried implementing 2 different plugins that allow registered, subscriber-level users edit their own comments within a set time limit (WP Ajax Edit Comments and Edit Comments XT). Edit Comments XT requires some changes to the comments.php file. I copied/pasted their code and put that version in my child theme folder, but it resulted in an error message. Neither has worked properly and I'm wondering if it's a compatibility issue (I am using a child theme and other comment plugins) or if there's some option/setting that I have wrong.
This all seems more complicated than it should be. Allowing a user to edit their own comment seems pretty basic...am I missing something here? Has anyone else using a child theme been able to solve this? Thanks!
