Edit Comments on Blogger

Thursday, May 25, 2006

While, doing some experiments with Blogger, I just found a way to edit user comments. I found this method when I analyzed the URL of delete comment and that of edit post and found them similar.

Here's a sample delete comment URL:

And this is an edit post URL:
The only difference between the two URLs is the page, delete-comment.g & post-edit.g. I decided to pass the variables of delete comment, blogID and postID to the page post-edit.g page. The result was that I got the comment text on the 'Edit Posts' screen. The next step to modify the comments and push the 'Publish Post' button. Task Accomplished... Comments Modified...

Steps for Modifying Comments:
  • Open the comments page of the post.
  • Right-click on the delete comment button and select 'Copy Shortcut'.
  • Paste the URL on a browser window.
  • Replace 'delete-comment.g' with 'post-edit.g'.

P.S.: Please do keep posting comments on my blog, I won't modify them.
