Quote Comment


Both versions of this plugin have their issues and so a version 3 is planned. I’m not sure exactly what it’ll do, but it’ll encorporate the best of both versions hopefully (editable quotes, options page, dynamic byline creation, etc.). Stay tuned.

Check out this cool plugin. It’s pretty much exactly like what the next version of my plugin was going to be like and thankfully someone else got to it first (yay, less work for me!).

As a result, I will no longer be developing this plugin and I suggest that you use that plugin instead of mine. 🙂

And yes, you can run both my plugin and that plugin at the same time. Just remove the function for this plugin from your theme and replace it with the new one. This way my dynamic replacements will keep working.


This plugin allows commenters to quote other comments in their reply. It is highly cofigurable, all via an admin area options page. The formatting of past quotes can also now be changed as the quote replacements, as of plugin version 2.0, are replaced at the time of diplay rather than the time of quoting.

Try it out below.

Installation / Configuration Instructions:

See included readme. Instructions and such have been moved to there. 😉

Download Latest:

Past Versions:

Don’t like the way the newest version works? You can get the old version of the plugin that inserts the comment right into the reply box (rather than a placeholder) here. Note though that the v1.x series is dead and I doubt I’ll do anything more than minimal support for it. 😉

Plugin Support / Feature Request Forum:



If you enjoy this plugin, please consider sending a few bucks my way. I’ve spent a lotta time on this plugin and all donated money will be put towards paying off my college loans and such. 🙂

  3. Thanks for the awesome plugin! Should make my visitors’ life a whole lot easier. I do have two questions:

    1) I also use Mark Jaquith’s Subscribe To Comments plugin. When I receive an email notification that contains a quote, it shows up like this:

    {Comment ID #10 Will Be Quoted Here>}

    This is an example of a nested comment!!!

    Would it be possible to display the actual quote not the tag in the email notifications?

    2) How do I change the color of the blockquote bar? What style is it?

    Thanks – Eran

  4. Mark’s plugin needs to run the comment contents through the plugin filters and not just grab it right from the database.

    However, version 3 of my plugin is in the planning stages and it should be a lot better. It’ll operate like most forums do. 😉

  12. will there be a way to alter quoted comments contents within the comment form in future plugin versions?

    Just sometimes comments are long, and you just want to quote a short and relevant section of it.

    it would be nice

    also an option to make the persons gravatar appear in the quote, if they have one???!

  13. Use v1.x of this plugin. It inserted the comment’s contents right into the comment form. 😉

    And I doubt I’ll add in Gravatar support. I think quotes would get way too busy looking if there were inline gravatars. *shrugs*

  17. I haven’t started on it yet. I’ve been swamped with work and such.

    If you’re looking for editable quotes, use version 1.x of this plugin. It has what you’re looking for. 😉

    Ah, no problem. I’ve been busy lately also and have been falling behind on my own coding work. I’ll just keep on using 1.x until you have some free time. Anyway, thanks for creating this great plugin. 🙂

  19. No problem. 🙂

    Anyway, any ideas on how should v3 should work? Something like this perhaps?

    The content of the comment here.

    And then replace that with a blockquote and a dynamic byline at the beginning or what?

  20. The only one I can think of is that if you disable the plugin, you’ll see that code (which could be avoided by doing this:

    <blockquote cite="post-1234">The content of the comment here.</blockquote>
  21. Why not actually write the html to database? Make the quotes easy to edit from the comment form, but once they’re posted the actual HTML appears in the comment. That way email notification, etc will display the real code, and disabling the plugin won’t be a problem.

    manual double quote
    edit – doesn’t appear to work 🙁

  26. [Comment ID #1323 Will Be Quoted Here]

    You can’t quote a comment within itself. The quick and dirty hack I did seems to have screwed up quoting the other comments within your comment.

    It’ll be much better handled in version 3, if I ever get around to coding it… :/
