Hello, is there any way/hack to change default time limit for comment editing? 15 minutes is more than enought, so I would like to set it to 5 minutes for example 🙂

Hi @dooomer

Please follow the steps below: 

1. Open the settings-form.php file  in the /wp-content/plugins/wpdiscuz/options/options-layout/ folder.

2. Find the following line  (line 183)

<option value="900" <?php selected($wc_comment_editable_time, '900'); ?>>15 <?php _e('Minutes', 'wpdiscuz'); ?></option>

3. Replace with this one:

<option value="300" <?php selected($wc_comment_editable_time, '300'); ?>>5 <?php _e('Minutes', 'wpdiscuz'); ?></option>

Important: the changes will be lost after wpdiscuz update. You should keep somewhere locally the code.

We will also take into consideration to add the 5-minute limitation for the "Allow comment editing for" option.

Dear Elvina,

thank you for your amazing support. I will save these code changes, but it will be cool if you can add 5 minutes option to the settings for future updates 🙂
