Ronald Huereca has released a new version of his plugin, Ajax Edit Comments, which gives users and guests the ability to edit their comments similar to the way that comments can be edited on Digg.com The latest version includes a couple of bug fixes, most notably dealing with UTF-8 encoding.
The following issues were addressed in this release:
- Admin were able to edit, but non-admin couldn’t. This was caused by the timer offset in the WordPress admin panel.
- MySQL errors resulted in the comment unable to save. This was caused my blogs and MySQL database not in UTF-8.
- Some characters were being screwed up when saving to the WordPress database. This issue was caused by non-UTF-8 back-ends.
- The blog would be inoperable in Internet Explorer due to multiple session headings being called.
- Random loading comment failure on WP 2.2.2 installs.
The issues (with the exception of issue number 4) can occur on a case-by-case basis depending on blog configuration and character set.
