Last week Francisca bemoaned the inability to edit or delete comments on Shooting Parrots and I have to agree (with) her. It has been a bit of an oversight on my part and one I decided to rectify.
I figured it would be a straightforward function to add. All I would have to do is find a suitable WordPress plugin, install it and that would be that.
It didn’t quite turn out that way. Although I found the plugin, it required some coding that I eventually managed with the help of the Thesis Users’ Forum.
This feature is time-limited and you have ten minutes to edit or delete your comment after posting it. And here is a blonde joke to complain about, giving you an opportunity to test the new feature:
A few days ago I was having some work done at my local garage. A blonde came in and asked for a seven hundred and ten.
We all looked at each other and another customer asked, ‘What is a seven hundred and ten?’
She replied, ‘You know, the little piece in the middle of the engine, I’ve lost it and need a new one.’
She replied that she did not know exactly what it was, but this piece had always been there.
The mechanic gave her a piece of paper and a pen and asked her to draw what the piece looked like.
She drew a circle and in the middle of it wrote 710. He then took her over to a car just like hers which had its hood up and asked, ‘Is there a 710 on this car?’
She pointed and said, ‘Of course, its right there.’ The mechanic fainted.
