Site Comments: One More Time . . .

The WYSIWYG commenting interface is finally compatible with WordPress 3.x, so we’re trying again.

In early testing, it seems to do a good job with the standard HTML commands: bold, italics, blockquoting, link insertion, and so forth.

Unlike the interface from months ago, however, it won’t automatically convert raw HTML code into readable text. Those who wish to use raw HTML coding can click the Source button.

Next up: Some sort of preview and/or edit feature.

Let me know what other issues you find.

UPDATE:  The new interface wasn’t playing well with the backend and has therefore been disabled. There’s a backup plan which will be installed this evening.
